Auction Sales

Grassroots provide an Online module which enables auctioneers to set up pedigree sales, select animals, add notes, run ballots, allocate lot numbers and produce catalogues.  Access to the data is provided with the permission of the relevant Breed Society.  Data may only be used for the purpose of creating the catalogue.

The Online module enable the auctioneers to define the order of the classes and the running order within consignments.  They can add notes for vendors and notes for individual animals.  There is an option to run ballots and assign lot numbers.  Sales can be set up to allow farmers to do direct entries Online via the Grassroots Manage My Animals screen.  Finally catalogues can be produced with all the animal details, one, two or three generation pedigrees, show results, progeny lists, lambs or calves at foot and EBVs captured directly from Signet.

Grassroots provide a single ‘user name’ and password to each auctioneer or sale organiser.  This provides access to all the sales run by that auctioneer, for all Grassroots species and breeds.   For a full list of Grassroots breeds please click here.
