Register Now to Bid Online

We have less than 4 weeks until the DN Bull Sale. Now is the time to get registered and get familiar with the Elite Livestock Auctions website. 

The following information demonstrates just how easy it is to register and if you do have any issues, contact the Elite Livestock Auctions team and they will guide you through. 

Click on the link http://elitelivestockauctions.com.au/how-to-bid-online/ for an easy online tutorial.

Some points to note:

- You do need to register to watch the live stream even if you do not intend on bidding, if you don't have an ABN or PIC simply enter TBA in these fields.

- Once registered, simply select the DN Sale on the Elite Livestock Auctions website and click 'Request to Bid'. You will be required to do this for BOTH Day 1 and Day 2 if you are looking to purchase on either of the days. To avoid disappointment, it is recommended you do this 24 hours prior to sale so the selling agents can approve your request.

- Elite Livestock Auctions “Stock Live” bidding platform supplies live video and live audio of the auction ring along with a basic description on each sale lot. More detailed information on each lot is best viewed though the DN Sale online catalogue that includes a photo of each lot and some will have a video (these will be progressively loaded onto the catalogue up until the sale). A link on the Elite Livestock System will take you there or go to www.droughtmasternational.com

- Should you wish to record the sale for our own reference – try downloading QuickTime player App and record all or parts of the sale that you are most interested.

- Sold prices for each lot will be recorded in real time on the ELA system but won't necessarily include buyer details unless the buyer was an online buyer.

- You do not need to have a smart phone or a tablet computer to use this innovation, it can all be viewed on a desktop computer or laptop.

Any questions can be directed to the Elite Livestock team through the 'contact us' tab on their website or on phone 1300 15 31 35.

2016 DN. Sale will go Live.

by Helen Walker

 

Internet bidding and live streaming will both be introduced to potential buyers at the 2016 Droughtmaster National Bull Sale to be held at the CQLX, over two days in mid September.

“Utilising the internet will provide buyers with the ability to bid on sale lots without having to leave home giving them a more efficent use of their time,” CEO of Droughtmaster Australia, Neil Donaldson said.  

“The internet is the future for trading of all commodities and the Droughtmasters have partnered with Elite Livestock to take advantage of the latest in technology. 

“We chose Elite Livestock as our partners for the National bull sale because they have a proven track record in this field, and can provide live streaming and live bidding on the one platform.” 

“Potential buyers will be able to access photographs and videos of every lot lodged in an electronic catalogue along with a detailed veterinary assessment covering semen, sheaths, and feet which will give them confidence to buy sight unseen.” 

The streamed vision and audio will also allow people to be viewers at the sale and have a ‘live’ connection to the sale as it unfolds through the selling ring.

Mr Donaldson said this latest initiative for the Droughtmaster National Bull Sale adds to the list of “firsts” for the national sale committee. 

“The National Bull Sale was the first to introduce compulsory bull breeding soundness evaluations, mandatory semen testing, and ultrasound scanning of every lot,” he said.
