"Rural trade me" allows online livestock sales

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:28 pm on 6 November 2019

Once upon a time farmers had to go to auctions and pick out the livestock they wanted to purchase.

StockX is an independent online marketplace run by those in the industry. Jason Roebuck is Managing Director and he joins us to explain how it works and why it's needed.
