In what was our first Online Genetics Auction and our first online auction for Ireland, we were thrilled with both the quality and number of lots entered.
With a total of 105 lots, we saw a pleasing range of beef and sheep entries from straws and embryos to breeding heifers and recipients. With 68 separate bidders, we saw fantastic bidding activity throughout the weekend in which 38 lots significantly exceeded expected auction prices.
