The Australian Premier Working Dog Auction

The 25th Australian Premier Working Dog Auction will be held
Sunday 13th June, 2021.

The first Working Dog Auction was organised by the local Apex Club and held at the local saleyards in 1997. It resulted in a total turnover of $6,120.

Fast forward to 2018, and a working dog sold for a new record-breaking $22,200! With an overall turnover of more than $264,000, the total amount of working dogs sold at the annual Casterton auction is in excess of $2.9 million – not bad for a small voluntary community group.

$22,200 kelpie sold in 2018.
Auctioneers James Tierney and Bernie Grant with Jack Matthews (Chairman - Working Dog Auction) and Christian Peacock Highest Priced Vendor ($22,200) and Karen Stephens, CKA President.
