The historic Brahman Selecto MX Sale closed out September 26 on the Best Cattle Sales Online platform hosted by The Brahman Journal. The sale featured 17 elite lots from some of Mexico’s top Brahman breeders.
This was a unique sale with online buyers participating across the Americas. The Best Cattle Sale platform allowed buyers to see all the bids in both Pesos (MXN) and US dollars (USD). The exchange rate was $1 USD equaling $22.50 MXN.
The sale averaged $8,642 USD ($182,353 MXN) with buyers in Mexico, the United States and Nicaragua.
The group of ‘Brahman Selecto MX’ consigners were incredibly happy with the result of their first online sale.
We are proud to be the first Mexican Brahman breeders to have this kind of event. It has been a significant challenge for us since most of the Mexican market is not used to online sales, but thanks to the joint efforts of all the consignees, we have made the first ‘Brahman Selecto MX’ sale a success. We would like to thank Victoria Lambert and her entire team at The Brahman Journal and Best Cattle Sales for all the work they have done.
