Professional Profile – Braham Metry 


Roman Geese arriving in Style!

Roman Geese arriving in Style!

I began my auction career in 1978 at 18 years of age. My grandfather, grandmother and uncle were all auctioneers. We all sold general antiques, furniture, real estate, poultry and fresh vegetables at our now closed Albury Auction Rooms.

 I left there in 1986 to open Metry’s Poultry Farm, selling point of lay pullets. In 1990, just after the death of my first daughter, I was approached by Euroa Poultry Club to call their second sale. Being very down, I said OK. Well it was the shot in the arm that I needed. I drove down thinking why and I doing this. I sold 400 pens in 3 hours and came home a new man. It saved me. I went on to secure a job as a Manager with the biggest auction house of the time, Mason Grey Strange. From 1990 to 1995, I sold for them as well as selling on the weekends. I sold poultry for one of the poultry sales in Sydney, as well as Morrest Auction which was livestock and poultry. I also worked for J R Lawson Antique Auctioneers from 1995 to 1996, which which I came home and opened Metry’s Auction Company.

 I am one of the few people who have auctioned fresh meat, fresh fruit and vegetables. I have sold everything from fresh fruit to 14th Century century furniture, jewelery to heavy plant machinery. With the exception of cattle sperm and shares, I have auctioned everything that can be auctioned at one time or another.

Hi , just looking for a pair of Saxony ducks any idea where I can get a pair from.

Leonie Hall

Hi Braham, I bought 4 hyline pullets last year and they have been wonderful. All 4 are still healthy and happy. Last summer one of them went clucky and sat for 40 days. I looked after her but she wasn’t a happy girl for quite a while. Do you sell Hyline fertile eggs? If one of them goes clucky this year I would like to buy some fertile eggs to put under her this time.
