What is MartEye Elite?
MartEye Elite is a new herd and flock sales platform that uses online technology, design, omni-channel marketing and an extensive network to launch what it describes as “a unique livestock sales platform”.
Partnering with MartEye’s livestock marts, the aim of MartEye Elite is “to showcase elite herds to their full potential”.
According to a statement from the company, in the past 12 months MartEye has attracted “significant” interest from overseas buyers – across Europe and further afield – for quality stock and genetics.
The online sales have resulted in both cattle and sheep being sold to countries such as Portugal, Belgium, France, Germany, Spain, Italy and the Netherlands to name a few.
Commenting on the platform, James Alexander of Jalex livestock said: “Partnering with MartEye for our on-farm livestock sales has added another dimension to our business and increased the number of buyers for stock.”
