Bayne Welker, president and chairman of the Consignors and Commercial Breeders Association, has a lot to say about sales integrity and other auction-related issues.

The Consignors and Commercial Breeders Association (CBA), which was formed in Central Kentucky earlier this year, has published a 20-page pamphlet about the pre-sale endoscopic evaluation of the throats of horses offered at public auction.
