Weekend Report April 30th - May 2nd

by Laura Huff | May 04, 2015

Molly & Jaymie traveled to Johnson City, Texas for one of their favorite events of the year--the Red McCombs Fiesta Sale. The event kicked off on Thursday at the Garrison Brothers Distillery, then the heifer sale took place Friday night and the cow sale on Saturday. The McCombs family and Alan & Teresa Sparger were excellent hosts for the weekend. We were privileged to work with them on the sale website, marketing, and catalog.

Hired Hand Live was also up and running to broadcast the sales for those unable to make the trip to Johnson City. Over 38% of the lots were upbid through the Internet. Of those 38% that were upbid, 12% had a sell through value. Sales that have used Hired Hand Live ​all have made money in doing so! Contact us today to find out how you can implement Hired Hand Live for your next sale.
