The first time Staffordshire YFC have held a Auctioneering Competition and it was a huge success with 11 members from across the County taking part. Each competitor had to describe and value 6 lots, varying from a pressure washer to a T707 New Holland Tractor! They then had to choose 3 items to auction off in a mock auction.
The winners on the night were: 1st – George Goodwin (Waterhouses YFC), 2nd – Peter Cotton (Waterhouses YFC) & 3rd – Alicia Smith (Chase YFC). George & Peter now qualify to represent Staffordshire YFC at the West Midlands Area round in June at the Three Counties Show.
