Young CQ auctioneers battle it out for state title
FOUR Central Queensland men are among 10 of the best young auctioneers in Queensland.
This talented group of finalists will battle it out today for the state title at the Australian Livestock and Property Agents Association Young Auctioneers Competition.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, things were done a little differently this year.
Selections were held virtually, with nominees asked to send a video of themselves conducting an auction of three consecutive lots of cattle in a regular sale.
The sale and competition will start at 1pm at Silverdale Saleyards, Silverdale.
The competition will be livestreamed at www.queenslandcountrylife.com.au/special-features/young-auctioneers/.
