(Wisconsin Ag Connection) Several Wisconsin auctioneers will be among the participants in a regional qualifying event for the World Livestock Auctioneer Championship Contest.
According to the Wisconsin Ag Connection, Jacob Hills of Elite Auction Service, Ridgeway; Kyle Mueller, Mueller Xpress, Bagley; and Mark Oberholtzer, Oberholtzer Dairy Cattle & Auction Co., Loyal, will face 45 other competitors in Windsor, Missouri, on January 4.
Each qualifying event is a live sale where each contestant auctions eight drafts of livestock to actual bidders. Contestants are judged on the clarity of their auction chant; professionalism; and their ability to conduct the sale while catching bids.
The top 10 auctioneers will go on to compete in the semi-finals for the 2023 WLAC in Florida.
