Elders creates online stock classified ads
ELDERS has launched Australia's largest and most comprehensive livestock classifieds service on its website, providing producers with an efficient way to buy and sell livestock, 24 hours a day.
Producers are able to search for stock wanted and stock for sale, whether they're looking for sheep, beef or dairy cattle. They can also set up daily email alerts for when new stock that suits their requirements is added.
Elders National Livestock Manager Chris Howie said the widest exposure in the shortest period of time was important during a hard season and the Elders livestock classifieds helped match supply with demand, in an easy, cost effective and interactive way.
"The Elders livestock classifieds is the largest of its type in Australia by volume," he said, adding it had for sale listings of 34,800 sheep and 13,350 beef cattle added by Elders branches in the last three weeks.
"The new platform also has listings for dairy cattle and can be used for other species and an additional feature is the sales calendar, which lists weekly, store, stud and clearing sales," he said
"We all know the livestock market is tough at the moment, so it's important that as an industry we look for ways to move with the times and adapt to changing conditions; utilising new technology is one way to achieve this."
Features of the Elders livestock classifieds system include the ability to add photos and videos, search for stock wanted and stock for sale, add important sales to the calendar and it can be used on a smart phone or tablet.
Producers using Elders as their agent can list livestock for sale, stock wanted, clearing sales and other sales calendar items online by contacting their local Elders branch.
