Videos of all the rams were taken on 30 October, together with a liveweight on that day. These videos along with performance data were uploaded to Agonline. You were able to bid on them from the time they were uploaded!
Its an easy way to buy rams, so keep it in mind for next year if you can't make my sale, which is on Farm Wednesday 28 November 2017. Note up to the end of the sale itself you are able to bid in real time (or place earlier autobids) against those farmers who actually attend the sale. We have sold in excess of 20 rams a year via agonline for the last two years, many repeat buyers! Once you have seen my sheep, it is an easy way to buy them!
