AuctionsPlus roadshow takes marketing message to Wodonga, Roma

Beef Central, 20/10/2015

NORTHERN Australia has been stepping into the technological age over the past month or two with some cracking lines and top prices on AuctionsPlus coming out of Queensland and the Northern Territory.

Competition has been very strong between live exporters, processors and southern re-stockers, typified by the 900 Brahman Steers ex Katherine offered last Friday week, which sold for 330c on-farm, and their half-sib sisters, 540 head in total, making 312c on-farm.

Due to the recent growth and interest from the North, AuctionsPlus has planned a series of Livestock Marketing and Buying Workshops to be run Australia-wide in coming months.

Designed to share knowledge, and discuss the challenges faced alongside new opportunities, the workshops will include guest speakers who will share insights and marketing experiences from across the supply chain. The gatherings will also include informal Q&A panel sessions allowing stakeholders to engage and get their questions on livestock marketing and buying options answered.
