After finishing high school Curt trained as an agriculture technician at Olds College then spent several years in Australia, where he added to his skills by working as a welder, plumber and general builder. Curt returned to Canada with his wife and young family in 2010 then spent a decade increasing his equipment knowledge by working as an agriculture technician near his hometown of Kelvington, Saskatchewan.
Having bought and sold a wide range of equipment for his ranch and custom combining operation, Curt is ideally suited to accurately appraise a variety of equipment, machinery and other items. Curt enjoys facilitating communication between customers and takes satisfaction in a job well done. His honesty and attention to detail, combined with his down to earth approach and agricultural knowledge and expertise, ensures the best possible results for customers.
In his spare time, Curt enjoys working with cattle and horses on his ranch and spending time with his family.

Work experience
Curt grew up on a grain, sheep and cattle farm and began helping with the operation at a young age. In the summers between attending college he oversaw the management of a manure injection crew. After moving to Australia Curt worked as a welder and a water treatment system technician then began building high end houses. He learned many different aspects of the building trade, including carpentry, plumbing, roofing, painting, cabinetry, brickwork, concrete work, tiling and landscaping. After moving back to Canada Curt worked as an agriculture technician on a variety of equipment, including combines, tractors and semis, while running a ranch and custom combining operation. Curt started working with McDougall Auctioneers Ltd as a sales representative then transitioned to working in the South Sask Equipment Appraisals division as an appraiser at the beginning of 2022.

Canadian Personal Property Appraisers Group
Chartered Insurance Professional



MCD Appraisals (Formerly South Sask Equipment Appraisers) was founded in 2011 by Kim Davis. After taking early retirement from the insurance company and brokerage world, Kim, a red seal journeyman mechanic, received a call from an industry colleague asking if he was interested in assisting them by providing an opinion on the cause of failure for an equipment claim. What started out as one assignment, soon multiplied into many assignments from a wide variety of insurance companies and a full-time commitment for the following ten years. At the end of 2021, Kim decided it was time to fully retire and he sold his company to McDougall Auctioneers Ltd.
Kim remained with SSEA / McDougall for 2022, assisting with and training additional staff and expanding the area of operation to Northern Saskatchewan & Manitoba.
With McDougall's four branch offices (Regina, Saskatoon, Brandon, Winnipeg), MCDA is well-positioned to provide professional cause of failure analysis' and equipment appraisal services to the insurance industry.
