Solutions for the current situation REGARDING COVID-19

With the uncertainty of being able to conduct Livestock, Sheep & Equine Sales of Breeding Stock, we are endeavouring to find a successful solution for both buyers and sellers. We will be offering Online “Live Virtual Auction” and On-Line ‘Timed Auction’ services to breeders for all types of livestock.  

We have been using Live Online Bidding for all our Livestock Sales since 2013 and our online bidding platform and/or pre-bidding platform will now be available for all our auctions.  

Our Online Auction System has been utilized in live Auctions to sell animals to Mainland Europe and even early this year in conjunction with Irish Limousin Society at the March premier Sale where we sold a number of animals online, but more importantly / significantly raised the prices of a large number of other animals, to attain current Market values.

Our secure online bidding and the pre-bidding platform allow you to bid online at all our auctions. Registration is easy and we are here to assist you with the process.

We have finalized a guide for buyers and sellers explaining the procedure of how this new system of marketing livestock will operate.

We have solutions available for individual Breeders with one animal to sell or Multiple animals to sell, Production Sales / Reduction Sales. We also have solutions for Breed, Sheep and Equine Associations.

We feel there is nothing more important than the health and wellbeing of the entire population, not just the farming community, but we are also extremely conscious of the urgent need for the rural community to be in a position to trade, whether that is for downsizing or searching for a breeding bull, so with this in mind, all auctions will be conducted in the strict accordance with Government Advice to Best Practice and adhering to social distancing policies & procedures, in the operation of this essential service.

The first events will depend on the requirements of our customers and the responses received, follow us on Facebook or Sign Up to our newsletter for all the latest updates.

Different Forms of Online Auctions:

Live Webcast Auctions:

With many of our live auction events, we also offer customers the option to bid live online*. These are known as Live Webcast Auctions. During a Webcast, the auctioneer at our live auction event calls the bids and the entire event is broadcast over the Internet. Anyone can bid – whether they’re in the room at the venue or viewing the event comfortably at home or office. This means that a live event bidder can bid against a live online bidder in real-time!

Live Virtual Auctions:

Due to the current unprecedented circumstances, we would utilize A Virtual Life Auction, this is basically an online auction, this is where there are no live auction attendees and all the bidding takes place via our online bidding platform. However, there is with a Live Auctioneering determining the bidding pattern and increments. It is often preferred by some buyers as it is sometimes more timely.

On-Line Only / Timed Auctions:

For a varied array of reasons sometimes we conduct online-only auctions, this is where there are no live auction attendees and all the bidding takes place via our online bidding platform. An online auction is an auction which is held over the internet. Online auctions come in many different formats, but we use the most popular method known as the ascending auction or “English auctions” as they are traditionally known.
