PLAINVILLE, KAN.  The Plainville Livestock Commission, Inc. will host the fifth annual Kansas Auctioneers Association Livestock Market Auctioneers Competition on Tuesday, November 13, 2012. Auction time is 12:30 p.m. The contestants must be employed and endorsed as an auctioneer at a livestock auction market in Kansas. Previous winners comprise Charly Cummings of Yates Center, Lynn Langvardt of Chapman, Brian Little of Coffeyville, and Blaine Lotz of Edna.

Ty Gillum, owner of Plainville Livestock, is looking forward to hosting this event and invites everyone to attend to hear and see some of the best auctioneers from Kansas in action. In addition, Ty says there will be a great selection of farm and ranch fresh livestock to choose from.
