Auctions » PW & A

By: Peter Walsh & Associates  05-Apr-2012

When it comes to trading livestock and achieving the best market price, the team at PW&A believes you can’t go past the auction system.

The company has particular expertise in:

  • Sale yards selling, conducting and organising livestock auction sales throughout the South Island – from seven public sale yard bases – on more than 200 days each year
  • On-farm livestock auctions
  • Clearing sale auctions

In addition, there are two high-profile PW&A mid-winter machinery auctions held in July – one in South Canterbury and the other in North Canterbury.

The company has a professional team of auctioneers – expertly supported by a back office that seamlessly processes the traditionally-cumbersome administration that accompanies auction sales.

A custom-built IT system, which the brokers feed directly into via field-based technology, fast tracks sales and facilitates a speedy flow of information back to both vendors and the purchasing public.

PW&A can advise on the optimum timing of an auction, document costs, complete the advertising, and select and draft the livestock. In the case of clearing sales, staff will set up and lay out surplus plant and machinery correctly, as well as market the livestock and plant on offer.

On sale day, expected values are provided to vendors by the auctioneer. Administration staff facilitate post-auction deliveries, record sold items and collect purchasers’ payments. And, at the end of the day, the vendor receives a detailed account for that day, with the full proceeds payment (less expenses) made 14 days from sale date.
