We proud to announce and congratulate Justin Banzhaf of Cambridge, Nebraska on being the Kansas Auctioneers Association 2014 Kansas Livestock Auctioneer Champion, which was held earlier this week on November 13th.
We had thirteen contestants at the Osborne Livestock Commission in Osborne, Kansas; owned by Zach Sumpter, to compete in the 6th Annual Livestock Auctioneers Contest. Mike Bailey, 5th Annual Kansas Competition winner and Livestock Marketing Association World Championship 3‐time qualifier served as MC along with Charly Cummings, 2011 World Livestock Auctioneer of Champion.
Each contestant sold eight drafts of cattle. A three judge panel was made up of market operators, managers or livestock market auctioneers – Gail Kats of Engle Wood, Colorado; Craig Heinen from Cawker City, Kansas; and Kent Thompson is from Iola, Kansas. They were judged with the same criteria used in hiring an auctioneer including: voice quality, chant, clarity, bid catching ability and execution of the auction and buyer/seller relations.
On September 11th, at the Kansas State Fair, nine contestants competed in the final round of the Kansas Auctioneer Contest. We
The 22nd Annual Kansas Auctioneers Association Auctioneer Championship was held on September 11th on the Bretz Law Arena stage at the Kansas State Fair. After the preliminary contest, which was conducted at the KAA Winter Convention in January, ten finalist out of 14 auctioneers were selected to compete for the title of 2013 Kansas Auctioneer Champion.
Our ten finalists were Eric Boone of Yates Center, KS; Ed Dewey of Rossville, KS; Nick Holzrichter of Burrton, KS; Lenny Mullin of Shawnee, KS; To Philips of Scranton, KS; Justin Schultis of Fairbury, NE, Brad Sosebee of Porter, OK; Donnie Stumpff of Cassville, MO; Jeff Temme of Petersburg, NE; and Titus A.

Our three judges were Mike Jones, CAI, GPPA, BAS -President United Country Auction Services and Texas Auction Academy; Hannes Combest - CEO of the National Auctioneers Association; and Ryan Rhynalds - Auctioneer & 2005 Kansas Auctioneer Champion. Each contestant answered two questions in an stage interview prior to selling of three items to the State Fair crowd. Judging was based on specified criteria that included presentation, chant and effective auctioneering, as well as an interview component.
We are proud to announce the following results:
