Covid 19 Cancelled the Conference but not the Sale!
With the utilization of modern technology in the form of the Bidr On Line Auction Platform, Link Livestock Limited was able to hold the NZ Milking Shorthorn AGM Sale in spite of Covid 19 ,on Thursday 26th March at 8pm with a busy bench of registered buyers and watchers. A simple press on the mouse replaced a nod of the head or a wave of the catalogue resulting in a good clearance of the offering.
The audience was presented with a 3GP, photo/video and footnote of each animal as well as some herd information. A dummy lot was offered first to get buyers familiar with the process, then the real auction began of a well presented offering.
17 of the 20 incalf heifers sold at an average price of $1649-00, 1 pick of the herd $2500, 3 yearling heifers averaged $1183, 1 R2 Bull $2150 and 2 R1 Bulls at $550.
This is a relatively new sales concept particularly for stud dairy cattle but one which we believe will play an important part in future stock transactions. This is also an additional option to promote the Milking Shorthorn Breed to dairy farmers.
Link Livestock Ltd appreciates the opportunity given to us. Paddock or Auction we are here to help.
