Young Auctioneer title

The 2012 Heartland Young Auctioneers Competition, held at the Canterbury A&P Show, was won by Glenn Peddie of Peter Walsh & Associates, with Ryan Andrew of PGG Wrightson finishing in second place. Seven auctioneers from the South Island competed in the inaugural competition.

Peddie was brought up on a farm in Wakari and attended the local Hawarden Area School. His first job was as a casual musterer around North Canterbury and Omarama. He started his career in the livestock industry as a livestock clerk in Christchurch, before becoming a stock agent servicing lifestyle farmers in the area.

Peddie joined Peter Walsh & Associates as a livestock broker in 2007, looking after the company’s inland Canterbury clients – from the Rakaia through to Parnassus. He was instrumental in re-establishing the sale at Coalgate and regularly assists with the auctioneering.

Entrants in the Young Auctioneers Competition where tested on auction rules and then involved in a mock auction to test their auctioneering skills. Each entrant was required to sell two lots of heifers/bulls; entrants were given prior notice of lots to sell and access to the breeder. The auction was held on Friday 16 November at the 150th Canterbury A&P Show in front of Show crowds.

Judges were impressed with Glenn’s knowledge of auctioneering rules and his delivery as an auctioneer, commenting that he displayed the complete package, from opening the auction, selling the cattle to closing the sale. Glenn was the oldest of the seven entrants and his experience in the sales ring showed on the day.

Glenn will attend the Sydney Royal Easter Show to watch the Australian Young Auctioneers Competition. Competition organisers hope to extend the competition to include a Trans-Tasman competition with plans for 2013 to extend the competition to a national event.

Peddie was awarded the New Zealand Stock & Station Agents Association (NZSSA) Young Auctioneers Trophy, $2000 from Heartland Bank and a $500 Swanndri clothing voucher.
