Young auctioneer prepare for national stage
PGG Wrightson’s finest set to take on best of the rest at tenth annual Heartland Bank Young Auctioneers Competition in November
Some of PGG Wrightson’s sharpest young rural professionals will go up against the best of the rest of the country in a few weeks at the tenth annual Heartland Bank Young Auctioneers Competition, in Canterbury on 2 November.
Earlier this year the company implemented an auctioneers strategy, which helps identify and train promising auctioneers with a bright future. Several of the company’s best will have the opportunity to take on elite young auctioneers from other companies, testing their skills and showing their ability in a contest for professionals under the age of 30.
Conducting auctions is an essential part of PGG Wrightson’s identity, and has always been a key role in the rural economy. Despite the potential that online platforms like bidr offer, the livestock auction will continue to be central to our business.
We look forward to seeing how some of our most promising up and comers perform on the national stage.Callum Stewart, PGG Wrightson Livestock National Genetics Manager
