How Much Wood Would a Woodchuck Chuck is a 1976 documentary film by German director Werner Herzog, produced by Werner Herzog Filmproduktion. It is a 44 minute film documenting the World Livestock Auctioneer Championship held in New Holland, Pennsylvania. Herzog has said that he believes auctioneering to be "the last poetry possible, the poetry of capitalism."
Herzog describes the auctioneering as an "extreme language ... frightening but quite beautiful at the same time." Herzog used two of the featured auctioneers as actors in his later film Stroszek.
