Farm to Farm – Daily Marketplace Livestock Marketing “The DAB Livestock Auction Hub Way”  begins with a visit from your DAB Livestock Auction Hub representative. The representative views the cattle in their natural surroundings and completes a consignment contract that describes the cattle and the terms and conditions of the sale (WE HAVE FORMULATED A STANDARDISED DISCRETPTION / CATIGORISIATION DOCUMENT – DOWNLOAD HERE). The representative also photographs a fair representation of the cattle with a video camera.

The consignment contract along with photos and videos are submitted to Laurelcrest House, the Hub’s head office where the information is entered into a computer database and a catalogue is prepared. The animals can be viewed online once uploaded and the listings can be viewed/bid on at any time.


After the cattle are sold. Following the auction, the DAB Livestock Auction Hub representative contacts all parties to arrange the delivery.

On the day of delivery, the DAB Livestock Auction Hub representative is present to oversee the sorting and loading of the cattle.

The cattle are shipped directly from the seller’s farm or holding to the buyer’s destination, which greatly reduces stress and potential health problems.

From the time the DAB Livestock Auction Hub representative completes the consignment contract with the seller until the time the cattle are loaded onto the buyer’s truck, personal hands-on attention is given to make sure the sales contract is followed completely.
