History of Hoards Station


At Hoards Station, as it is commonly referred to, livestock of every size and colour are sold by auction The sale was started in 1949 by Ray Williams and sold to Delbert Hickson in 1959. Delbert sold to his children Carl and Marie in 1971, and in 1992 Carl sold his shares to his nephew, David DeNure, who now operates the barn with his mother Marie.

Hoards Station is one of the only sale barns in Eastern Ontario that has 3 rings running simultaneously. The DeNure family, a 3rd-generation family of auctioneers, welcomes you to join them every Tuesday afternoon for some good food, good times and most importantly some great auctioneering!

Note: the postcards below were used as a marketing tool by R. Williams. I’d say he was ahead of his time!


Covid-19 Update

Hoards Station Community Livestock Exchange

Campbellford, Ontario


These are stressful times during the Covid-19 crisis.

We will be trying to keep our employees and customers safe.

In doing so at this time we are strongly asking the public to avoid coming to the sale barn just to pass some time.

We ask that only buyers and sellers attend our weekly sales until this crisis has ended. We appreciate all your concerns and hope everyone stays safe and healthy. Our sales will be running as usual, every Tuesday. And receiving livestock Monday nights between 6-9pm.
