A couple of previous threads that between them add to the general info available about this auction:

  • http://forum.backyardpoultry.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=8007478 Sept-Nov 2011 notices including directions
  • http://forum.backyardpoultry.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=8009673 Traralgon Ag Show but some info re auction
    eg.

    Traralgon Auctions are ran by a football club . There is no poultry club in Traralgon, so most birds would either come from Maffra or Warragul club members.Not many backyarders show at Ag shows which is a pity, as it is a good place to start showing.


    :wink:

Any info on this auction? eg range of breeds commonly brought, buyer profiles (breeders, backyarders, meat buyers?) number of pens? Who to book through?

Traralgon is a significant drive and midweek means changing work days so i just need more info before making the call - i do have 8 pullets/cockerals who need new homes soon though! ...

its hit and miss with the wednesday ones, they sell things like veggies and garage sale items as well, quite small compared to the sunday ones, having said that you can pick up bargains because its small. mainly backyard buyers on the wed.

if you were considering a long drive i'd wait for the sunday ones, they are far bigger and much more people turn up as its a weekend. there are meat buyers at the sunday auction as well.
