Nebraska’s Matt Lowery named LMA’s 2008 World Livestock Auctioneer Champion

WORTHING, SD – Matt Lowery, who said he “grew up loving the cattle business, and playing auctioneer,” won Livestock Marketing Association’s 45th annual World Livestock Auctioneer Championship, held here June 28 at the Sioux Falls Regional Livestock market.
