There is great chatter among young livestock auctioneers. What can it be about?
Yes! It’s time for the 2017 Toyota SA National Young Auctioneer Competition in co-operation with Veeplaas and Stockfarm.
The action kicks off toward the end of 2016 with a regional competition. Enter now for the Western Cape regional competition to be held at Agri-Expo Livestock Show from 13 to 15 October at Sandringham, Stellenbosch. Fees are R100 per entry.
After a successful competition over the past three years, the Stockfarm team will once again be travelling across the country in 2017 in search of the best young and junior auctioneers in South Africa and Namibia. The first promotional auctions kick off in March, so keep an eye out for the Stockfarm team and your nearest Toyota dealer at the weekly auctions held in various towns.
The categories for the 2017 Toyota SA National Young Auctioneer Competition are:
- Junior category: 19 years and younger.
- Young category: 19 to 30 years.
