2019 Mule Day Champion Auctioneer Contest
Friday 9:00 AM
Tennessee Livestock Producers Sale Barn

The Columbia Breakfast Rotary Club hosted their annual Mule Day Auctioneers Championship on April 6, 2018. The Championship was held at the Tennessee Livestock Producers Sale Barn in Columbia. Twenty-six outstanding auctioneers from Alabama, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Indiana, Colorado, Kentucky, Virginia and Georgia took the auction block to see if they could claim the 2018 Championship Belt Buckle (sponsored by Nashville Auction School). The Championship is a real live auction with each auctioneer selling three (3) items in the first round. The top five (5) auctioneers return to the Championship round. The bidding was fast and exciting as the auctioneer, each with their own unique auctioneer chant got the crowd excited earning top dollar and trying to impress the judges.
Junior Staggs (2017 Grand Champion) returned and took the auction block to sell the autographed Charlie Daniels Fiddle and 2018 Mule Day Knife.
Judges for the 2018 Championship were Tom Jackson, Murfreesboro, TN, Mike McAlister (2016 Champion), Fayetteville, TN, Marvin Alexander, Martin, TN and Jerry Mansfield, Taft, TN.
The five auctioneers making it to the Championship round were Joshua Houston, TN, Brent Croom, TN, Shane McCarrell, TN, Jeff Bynum, Al, Chuck Bradley, Al.
Jeff Bynum of Attalla, Al was named the 2018 Grand Champion and Chuck Bradley, Alexander City, Al was named Reserved Champion.
The Championship funds the Columbia Breakfast Rotary Club’s college scholarship program. The Club awards four (4) $1000.00 scholarships and one (1) $1,500.00 scholarship to Columbia State Community College. Also, a student may re-apply to continue their scholarship.
IMPORTANT NOTE for 2019 CHAMPIONSHIP: Because of the number of auctioneers wanting to enter the Championship CBRC has made the decision the 2019 Championship will have a preliminary round (limited to 50) to be held on Thursday, April 4, 2019 – 6:00 pm at the Columbia American Legion Post 19 (819 Nashville, Hwy, Columbia, TN). This partnership with Post 19 not only will benefit the CBRC scholarship program but also the veterans of Maury County. The top twenty (20) auctioneers will advance to the Championship round on Friday, April 5, 2019.  The preliminary and Championship rounds will be live auctions and the public is invited.
