Further to yesterday’s (March 25 2020) announcement of important modifications to sale-day procedures in response to COVID-19, AAM Investment Group (AAM) provides the attached document outlining, in detail, the immediate procedural and access changes which have been made across the Regional Livestock Exchange (RLX) network of livestock marketing facilities.
These include implementation of:
- Mandatory electronic sign in
- Restrictions on buyer access – professional buyers and licensed agents only
- Mandatory visual buyer identification and verification
- Extension of online bidding services
- Nomination of professional buyers and/or Licensed Agents to purchase on behalf of individuals.
Please note, these restrictions will remain in place in accordance with any changes communicated by the Federal Government from this point forward.
It is also critical any persons not deemed to be ‘essential to the function of a sale’ do not come onsite and participate remotely – either through professional buyers and licensed agents, or the online streaming and bidding platform, StockLive (www.rlx.com.au or www.stocklive.com.au). Individuals considered essential are genuine buyers, livestock agents, livestock transporters and site staff. All other persons who present at an RLX site will be asked to leave.
RLX will continue to prioritise public health and monitor the most current State and Federal Government advice on the situation, and provide regular communications regarding any further changes to onsite procedures should they be required.
AAM thanks our clients and the broader community in advance for their cooperation with these important matters as we continue to work hard to maintain an active and transparent marketplace at this unprecedented time.
