Livestreaming and online bidding are part of Top Genetics auctions worldwide for years. The popularity of online auctions has intensified due to the Corona pandemic. However, this VOST Zuchtviehauktion is the first regular livestock auction that is organized entirely online, which has not been done before.
FarmersBid.com is a new online platform, which provides a bidding system (without any delay) that multiple organizations are using to organize their sale. Under the name ClipMyHorse.TV Auction, this system has already been used for hundreds of auctions in the equestrian sector.
The number of auctions which will be held online and live-online will increase in the coming years. This year there will be several online livestock auctions via FarmersBid.com, including online auctions with Dutch milking cows, later this year. So keep an eye on the FarmersBid.com website to stay informed about the lastest developments.
