2018 Mule Day Champion Auctioneer Contest
Friday 9:00 AM
Tennessee Livestock Producers Sale Barn

The Columbia Breakfast Rotary Club hosted their annual Mule Day Auctioneer Championship on March 31, 2017. The Championship was held at the Tennessee Livestock Producers Sale Barn in Columbia. Twenty-two outstanding auctioneers from Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, Georgia, Alabama, Oklahoma, Colorado and Virginia took the auction block to see if they could claim the 2017 Championship Belt Buckle (sponsored by Nashville Auction School). The Championship is a live auction with each auctioneer selling three items in the first round. The bidding was fast and exciting as the auctioneers each with their own auctioneer chant got the audience excited earning top dollar for their items and trying to impress the judges.
Mike McAlister (2016 Grand Champion) returned and was impressive as he took the auction block to sell a 2017 Mule Day Knife and autographed Charlie Daniel’s Fiddle.
Judges for the 2017 Championship were Charles Tisher, Columbia, TN, Jacob Massey, Petersburg, TN (2013 Grand Champion), Tennessee Representative and auctioneer Andy Holt, Dresden, TN, Colonel Littleton, Lynnville, TN.
The five (5) finalist were Kerry Lenhart, Illinois, Brent Croom, Tennessee, Junior Staggs, Tennessee, Woody Woodruff, Tennessee and Jeff Bynum, Alabama.
Junior Staggs, Puryear, TN was named the 2017 Mule Day Auctioneer Grand Champion and Woody Woodruff, Murfreesboro, TN was named Reserve Champion.
The Championship helps to fund the Columbia Breakfast Rotary Club’s college scholarship program and community fund program. The Club gives four (4) $1,000 scholarships and one (1) $1,500 scholarship to Columbia State Community College to high school students. In addition the Championship has help to fund a $30,000 playground at Ridley Sports Complex and a $30,000 Splash Pad at the River Walk in Columbia.
