How long does the whole process take? How long does it take for my auction to go live?
It varies. All cattle sold on the AGEX platform must carry a registered AGEX Tag. How these tags are put in and how weights are taken is largely dependent on the Affiliate and the Producers’ setup. For instance, if a producer had 20 steers caught up and ready for the affiliate to tag and weigh, the process could take less than 30 minutes. Once cattle are catalogued and weighed, an auction can be priced and up for sale in a matter of minutes (depending on cell data or internet access available to the affiliate in order to upload a sale). The length of the sale will depend on the type of cattle, the day of the week, and, of course, your situation as a producer.
