****BULL SALE Friday 27 March 2020 ONLINE ONLY****
Dear Fellow Farmers
In accordance with best preventative practice and in the interest and safety of our staff, you our clients and our partners in professionalism and all of your extended families we have decided in light of latest government guidelines to CANCEL OUR PHYSICAL AUCTION this Friday 27 March 2020. This is not a decision that we have taken lightly but in view of the current situation and each 24 hours bringing new government decisions, we feel that this is the best way forward.
However in true farmer form the show will go on – albeit in a modified format. THIS YEAR OUR ANNUAL BULL SALE will be ONLINE ONLY at AUCTIONS PLUS www.auctionsplus.com.au
As farmers we know first hand that necessity is the mother of invention and we thrive as farmers because we can and do readily adapt to any situation.
