Here's The Perfect Solution If You Want to Host an Easy, Stress-Free Bull Sale That Saves You Thousands, Reaches More Buyers and Won't Leave Your Loyal Customers Behind!!!
Welcome to Montana Cattle ConneXion.com!
ConneXion is an online marketing company committed to marketing with integrity and promoting Montana's Ranching heritage. In 25+ years of experience in cattle marketing and now with our new online sales platform, our capabilities have expanded to help all kinds of livestock operations.
We are Excited to be able to host Production sales for registered producers such as yourself! In the past few years we have conducted online special sales for different events such as Horse Sales, Pig Sales, and County Fair Sales. We have also sold many special cow dispersion sales and have brought tremendously more money for dispersion cows than the local sale barns. We are confident in our ability to market Seedstock to reach more buyers and create more value for sellers!
See the results of the "REAL" Ranch Horse Sale Here... They were knocked off their schedule by COVID two weeks before their live sale event. The event was not merely salvaged, but the sale averages were HIGHER than the year before!
ConneXion offers different options for producers to build and run special online-only auctions just for you and your customers! We can even run a Free Demo showing you the Features of a Fully-Customized Online Sale!
Here's What ConneXion Can Do for YOU...
ConneXion allows Registered Breeders to create an entire, branded online auction experience. Post the entire sales catalog online and allow your bidders to easily bid in real-time..
- Digital Catalog with Visual Media
- Automated Auctioneer, Clerking and Billing!
- Bidders can bid at anytime, anywhere!
- Bid from a computer or mobile device
- Staggered, Soft Close
- VERY Easy to Use!
You will appreciate the ease of use for your buyers. In the ranching industry, producers are sometimes a little behind on cutting edge technology. That's why we made sure this platform is extremely easy to use. Our bidding interface is easy for all users regardless if they are bidding on a mobile phone or a desktop computer.
Most Seedstock producers' biggest fear is this... "I have a few older and very loyal customers who say they will never buy a bull online." We've heard this with every Breeder we have talked to. We want to make a few things very clear on how we can help you expand your opportunities without leaving loyal customers behind...
- Please note - These sales are online ONLY with NO LIVE AUCTIONEER. This eliminates the confusion when you have buyers on several different platforms and actually makes the process easier.
- With the COVID Pandemic, many of these same buyers ended up buying a bull online last year anyway.
- We encourage you as a breeder to have a "Open House" for your buyers to come look at the bulls and still keep your social event if you choose. If you do this while bidding is open, ConneXion Reps can come out and walk anyone through the process step by step or bid by proxy.
Sales are open for a longer length of time allowing the opportunity for more buyers to bid. This also helps you because regardless of snow storms, packing plant fires or pandemics, buyers have no excuse to have missed your sale!
Have you ever had a bull sale and then two days later a buyer calls and says, "Hey sorry I missed your sale, I'm still needing a few bulls. Can I buy a few cheaper ones left over from the sale?" ... We haven't...
Not only will we help you market your production sale but we also can help your customers market their calves in the fall! We always can market calves better if we know and believe in the genetic programs behind them! When you work with ConneXion, we will help you reach new buyers, and also bring buyers from our network of over 7,000 followers!
Why ConneXion Sales?
- Hosting Auctions At Sale Barns or with Big Video Companies Is Expensive, Complicated And Stressful
- You are no longer a hostage to the weather! Storms not only stop buyers from coming to the sale but we have heard many horror stories of the broadcasting service being knocked out and useless! (sometimes they don't even tell the sellers and charge them for airtime anyway!)
