The 2012 World Livestock Auctioneer Champion is Bailey Ballou. He got to perform for us here at the LMA Annual Convention at the LMA PAC dinner/auction. Bailey auctioned off a number of items to raise money for the effort.
Before we got started with that I chatted with Bailey about his year as the WLAC. He says he’s been on the road to almost 70 different events this past year and is looking forward to a little break in the action. Bailey has always been goal driven and after reaching his goal of winning the WLAC he says he needs some time to formulate a new challenge. He also offers encouragement to anyone who would like to pursue a career as an auctioneer and especially in the livestock business.
