Agra Weaner Championship Series Returns for its 12th Edition, Showcasing Excellence in Namibian Cattle Production.

Namibia, May 31, 2023 - The highly anticipated Agra Weaner Championship Series is set to kick off its 12th edition in 2023, igniting excitement among cattle farmers across the country. Spanning from Karasburg to Grootfontein, a total of 18 auctions are scheduled to take place between 18 July and 14 September, offering a platform for producers to showcase their exceptional work.  Additionally, we will be organizing four auctions in the communal areas of Aminus Okondjatu, Talismanus, and Okakarara, aiming to engage these emerging regions.

The primary objective of the Agra Weaner Championship Series is twofold, to provide capacity building opportunities for participating communities and to recognize the top producers for their outstanding achievements. This esteemed series not only serves as a significant cashflow stimulus for numerous cattle farmers but also incentivizes excellence in weaner quality.

By participating in this prestigious series, producers have the opportunity to gauge and compare their production standards and management practices with their peers on a national level. The judging criteria have been standardized to ensure fairness and eliminate biases. Animals compete in one of three competition categories: Feedlot Potential (Tollies), Field Potential (Tollies), or Breeding Potential (Heifers).

In addition to honouring the top performers in each category, the Agra Weaner Championship Series also recognizes the contributions of buyers. Prizes are awarded for the highest amount spent during the series, as well as the largest total number of animals purchased throughout the auctions.

Prizes will be awarded the top three winners in every competition category. The prizes will be distributed at each auction during the series, culminating in the announcement of regional winners and overall champions at the prestigious Gala Event held in October.

The Agra Weaner Championship Series embodies inclusivity and represents the exceptional quality of Namibian cattle production. Achieving recognition in this competition requires unwavering commitment and adherence to excellent farming and management practices.
