World Livestock Auctioneer Championship Starts Friday

The 59th World Livestock Auctioneer Championship (WLAC) is set to take place this Friday and Saturday. It’s being held in conjunction with the Livestock Marketing Association’s (LMA) Annual Convention which runs through Saturday in Punta Gorda and Arcadia, Fl.

Thirty-one semi-finalist auctioneers will compete in the competition. The auctioneering contest will begin with the interview portion. That’s where each WLAC semi-finalist must clearly establish and demonstrate their knowledge of the livestock marketing industry.

And DeAnne Maples with the Florida Beef Council told us she’s going to be one of the judges for that event.

The second part of the competition will take place during a live sale at Arcadia Stockyard in Arcadia, Fl. On Saturday. That’s where contestants will sell cattle to actual bidders in the seats.

You can view the WLAC competition via the live online broadcasts. The interviews can be seen Friday, June 9 starting at 3:00pm (ET) from Punta Gorda. The auctioneering competition will be Saturday, June 10 at Arcadia Stockyard beginning at 8:00am (ET), and both will be streamed on or LMA Facebook Live.
