Holstein Australia Online Showcase Sale Expressions of Interest
Holstein Australia is calling for expressions of interest for its first internet-based sale, The Holstein Australia Online Showcase Sale, which will take place after the Association’s Annual General Meeting on Thursday 15 November at Wrest Point, Tasmania.
How will the sale work?
The 2018 Holstein Australia Online Showcase Sale will be broadcast live via the Internet, with full video, imagery and sound. Buyers and sellers can bid or view auctions from the comfort of their home or office in real-time using a computer, tablet or smartphone. Animals will be videoed prior to sale and do not need to be transported to the sale venue. Buyers will be able to participate in the auction via computer, tablet or phone wherever they are located.
Holstein Australia has retained the services of Bradley Cullen to film video footage and provide a photograph of all animals entered in the online auction. Vendors will also have the option of providing their own video footage and photograph that meets the set criteria.
While the cost of providing video footage and photograph will be the vendor’s responsibility, it is anticipated that due to the online nature of the sale vendor costs will be considerably lower than those associated with a traditional sale held at a selling centre.
Who is running the sale?
Conducted by DLS on behalf of Holstein Australia, auctioneer Brian Leslie will be selling approximately 25 lots from around the country. Brian will be located in Hobart, working with Elite Livestock Auctions, to allow breeders to participate in the auction without leaving their homes.
