Working Duties Expected

An agricultural auctioneer works like any other auctioneer, to sell land and property by auction to the highest bidder. The agricultural auctioneer though, has the specific responsibility for auctioning agricultural property including land, machinery, buildings and, most particularly, livestock.

The auctioneer has to develop a detailed knowledge of the difference between the potential breeding or carcass value of an animal and also needs to learn about new introductions to the farm sector, such as alpacas and llamas and other rare breeds.

Agricultural auctioneers are usually employed by firms of rural practice surveyors or agricultural valuers based in rural centres and market towns. You do not necessarily have to have a surveying qualification to become an agricultural auctioneer, many firms in rural areas provide training and you begin as an assistant auctioneer. Showmanship is needed for livestock auctions and sensitivity for farm sales that are the result of a failed business. Self-confidence, a sharp eye and quick reactions are all important. The Central Association of Agricultural Valuers (CAAV) can provide further information.

What does the role encounter?

An agricultural engineers work includes:

• identifying and valuing livestock, land, machinery and property;
• marketing the benefits of sale by auction to potential clients;
• preparing appropriate written information for the auction process, eg catalogue entries;
• managing the bidding process when the auction is underway;
• keeping sellers informed of the outcome of the auction process if they are not actually in attendance;
• marketing auctions to generate interest from potential buyers.
