Young Auctioneers Competition

Each year, the Hamilton P&A Society runs the Young Auctioneers Event at Sheepvention with great participation. The competition is very well supported and a fantastic crowd is always on hand to cheer on the competitors. To capitalise on this and provide more room for the crowd as well as a better selling environment, the auction takes place in the Wool Shed Selling Centre, one of the busiest pavilions.
