ALPA National Young Auctioneers Competition

9 auctioneers from across Australia are coming together to compete in the ALPA National Young Auctioneers Competition at the Sydney Royal Easter Show this week.

Warrnambool Livestock Manager, Josh McDonald, will be representing Nutrien Ag Solutions on the big stage competing for the honour of the top gong.

Josh has been working in the agricultural industry for six years, and his favourite part of the job is meeting with clients and working with livestock.

Looking to the future Josh wants to grow his client base and continue to develop as an agent and auctioneer.

Nutrien Ag Solutions Tom Breen, General Manager of Customer and Business Services, said every year the competition attracts the top up and coming talent from across Australia and this year was no different.

“We’re committed to fostering the next generation of talent. We understand it needs to be a focus for agribusinesses to ensure the sustainability of the livestock industry. We want to empower the next generation to take on new challenges and grow in their field.”

“The Nutrien Ag Solutions team is extremely proud of Josh’s efforts and wish him and the competitors all the best in this year’s event,” said Breen.
