Agra Auctioneer in Top Ranks 40 Seconds Ago

Agra livestock auctioneer, Fanie Cronjeacute again performed exceptionally well in the VeeplaasToyota SA Auctioneer competition on April 28 at the Bloemfontein Show, coming a close second amongst eleven competitors in the junior class.

The evaluation of the competitors is done in three categories:

– stock judging, counting 20% of the total score

– subject knowledge where they test the auctioneer’s knowledge of auction procedures and rules as well as articles from the South African Consumer Law relevant to auctions, counting 30%,

– and the actual auctioneering skills which make up the other 50% of the total score. Auctioneers could compete in junior, open and aspirant classes.

Cronjeacute , who has been part of the Agra livestock team since February 2012, scored 92% in the stock judging category, 100% in the category of theoretical knowledge and 77% with his auctioneering skills, totaling 89.67%. This places him in second place, close to the winner Andre van Zyl from CMW Elite, an auctioneer with 5 years experience, who achieved a total score of 91%.

Fanie’s performance earned him a place in the South African team to participate in a Young Auctioneers Competition against Australia and New Zealand during the Beef Australia Expo in Rockhampton, Australia, 4-9 May 2015.
