It used to be that if you wanted to buy stock, you jumped in the ute and drove to the sale yards. Not any more!
A couple of weeks ago, I sat in front of my computer and kept hitting the enter button. Why? I was bidding on a stud ram auction that was being held in Victoria!
It’s amazing to think that there was an auctioneer running a sale so many thousands of kilometres away and I was sitting in my office, bidding. I must say, although the adrenalin was running through my body, the atmosphere wasn’t the same in front of the computer as it would have been if I was at the auction itself. I think I would have preferred to be there!
