ACM is proud to announce the return of its online promotional opportunity and competition - Sire Shootout.
The inaugural event became a platform to launch the $180,000 Nicneil Sugar Daddy and the momentum failed to reduce in 2021 when bulls sold at public auction to average more than $25,000.
If you have a standout sire for sale in 2022 don’t miss this opportunity to increase his value and show him off to the seedstock world!
The most recent event attracted its biggest audience ever - the day after judging Facebook live streams had eclipsed 13,700 while the online streams on all six agriculture mastheads totalled 2231 views from Australia, Canada, New Caledonia, United Kingdom and United States of America.
Add that with the fact the viewer's choice competition also received twice as many votes stretching across the globe, and the marketing capabilities of the Sire Shootout were clear to see.
Nominations are open from May 26 until June 9, 5pm with your contributed photos and videos.
These will be collated by our team and a team of judges will then cast their eyes over each animal.
The live judging will be broadcast across ACM’s six agriculture mastheads (North Queensland Register, Queensland Country Life, The Land, Stock and Land, Stock Journal and Farm Weekly) for a global audience from June 28 to 30 c ulminating in a supreme bull award.
Each stud can nominate a maximum of four bulls and is open to Australian animals only.
The animal must be registered with a breed society and for sale in 2022 through either a private treaty or a public auction.
Entry fee is $200 per head + GST.
