Incitec drought fundraiser hopes to make $200,000

Beef Central, 26/10/2018

INCITEC Pivot Fertilisers has donated nine B-double truckloads of SuPerfect fertiliser for a charity auction starting Monday to raise funds for the Buy a Bale High Country drought relief effort.

The company hopes to raise more than $200,000 through next week’s online auction on AuctionsPlus, starting Monday, to support drought affected farmers.

“We are encouraging farmers and graziers, particularly those in Victoria, to bid for any one of the nine, 43-tonne lots of SuPerfect, and help out their fellow farmers who are doing it tough,” said Gerard Buckle, Vice President Southern with Incitec Pivot Fertilisers.

The first truckload of SuPerfect was auctioned last month at the Buy a Bale High Country ball in Mansfield for a winning bid of $20,000.

With support from AuctionsPlus, the nine remaining 43 tonne lots will be auctioned online at https://auctionsplus.com.au/ from 10am on Monday 29 October until 1pm on Wednesday 31 October.

“The more farmers who bid, the better,” Mr Buckle said.

The SuPerfect product being auctioned is  only available from Incitec Pivot Geelong and must be collected before January 31. Freight from Incitec Pivot Geelong and spreading are not included in the auction price and must be arranged independently by the buyer.

“We are encouraging the winners of these nine lots of SuPerfect to engage Benalla Bulk Fertilisers to cart and spread the fertiliser, who in turn will generously donate $10/tonne from their fee to the fundraiser,” Mr Buckle said.
