Dairy Support

Supporting our dairy clients

NZ Farmers Livestock (NZFL) are here to service all of your marketing and selling needs.

We offer superior support and services for both buying and selling livestock via an on farm clearing sale, MyLiveStock.co.nz, paddock sales or through our Saleyard network.

Marketing your Dairy Cattle

Our sale services provide:
  • Personal calls to prospective buying customers by our livestock personnel and a portfolio of potential buyers compiled. We are strong believers that the agents are a critical part of ensuring a successful sale whether in the paddock or at auction with the knowledge they have.
  • NZFL are actively seeking out new ways to leverage promotion and advertising options via digital channels. We use a combination of newspapers, radio, as well as web based promotion through MyLiveStock, social media and emails to make sure you get full coverage of your stock.
  • If going to auction, we compile and distribute catalogues to potential buyers, agents and our national distribution network. Our extensive list of farmer clients not only through our agents but also via MyLiveStock which has been operating for over 20 years and is renowned for its reputation. We also offer direct mailouts to all our farming clients which has proven to be hugely successful.
  • Clearing sale set up – selling rostrum, seating, layout and flow is critical to running a professional and successful sale which will enhance attributes of your dairy stock and create a friendly and relaxed atmosphere where buyers feel comfortable in the sale environment. We are committed to setting up a safe environment for all those involved.
  • We know that pre-lotted through clear cataloguing is the key to success and is a proven draw card to purchasers. Clients know what is entering the ring in advance, right through the sale, as every cow is lotted making focusing on what the purchaser is after so easy, trying to stay focused from start to finish in a non pre-lotted sale is very difficult. Pre-lotting takes a lot of time and expertise, but we believe is the secret to success as stated in our client’s references.

    * All members of our team are proud to offer our online auction platform to live stream sales directly from on-farm auctions, allowing bidding online, nationwide, in real time. The platform provides the ability for farmers to virtually attend and participate at sales without leaving their farm. It also offers an auto bidding functionality which has proven tremendously popular, giving farmers a level of flexibility they’ve never experienced before.
  • We are the only company to offer the ability online to operate on the pick or a selection of cows which we believe is absolutely critical in obtaining the highest value for your stock. NZFL have had buyers from all over NZ buy online that have said they would not have gone to the sale because of distance/time/costs etc but could operate online for their selected animals.
  • We stand by the service of experienced and knowledgeable NZFL staff to support you in the running of the sale.
  • Auctioneering
    Our staff know how critical it is to have a dedicated team of excellent auctioneering professionals. The level of professionalism and skill offered by our auctioneers cannot be challenged. Our auctioneers are put through training schools to ensure their skill set is second to none.
    NZFL already has a significant share and specialist knowledge of nationwide dairy herd sales. Our Dairy Forward Contract protects you as a vendor or purchaser throughout the whole deal and beyond. It is constantly reviewed and updated to keep up with the changing dairying environment and has stood the test of time. It is one of the only contracts that has an individual calving date clause and also an excellent eczema warranty to name a few. It is critical that these contracts protect both vendor and purchaser.
