  6. The animals will be brought to the mart and weighed. The purchase price will be amended to the exact price per kilo of the animal when weighed at the mart. Marts will charge normal commission to facilitate the marketing, sale, weighing and payment of each lot.

Marts may only be open on specific days of the week, therefore collection of lots may only be available on these days. By bidding on the LSL e-Marts platform you agree to pay the amended price per kilo for each animal, when weighed at the mart. This may be higher or lower than the estimated weight. Exact weights may vary from the time weighed on a farm verses the mart. Mart weights always take precedent and payments are made on mart weights.

Pay and collection of lots at marts are by appointment only.

 

Livestock Live Limited facilitate the auction platform and do not physically hold animals or lots. Livestock Live Limited are not responsible for payment of lots. Weights estimated by sellers are estimated weights.
