It was a first-time competitor’s energetic auctioneer chant that caught the judges’ attention at the International Plowing Match and Rural Expo held in Amaranth in September. At the end of the competition, John Dunn of Alliston came out on top.Held on Friday, Sept. 22, of this year’s event in the Holmes Agro Agricultural Showcase Tent, Dunn caught the judges attention when it was his turn to take the stage. Competition judges looked for clearness of speech, rhythm, how well the participants caught the bidder’s eyes, dress code, and how correctly information about the winning bid was relayed to the clerk.
