These two sheep have made history by becoming the first to be sold on an online auction site just for livestock.

The Dorset cross lambs were sold on SellMyLivestock, which is the only online auction system of its kind in the UK.

Sussex farmer Andrew Huxham bought the lambs for his father-in-law. He said,

“With time and cost top of the mind at the moment, we wanted to see how the system worked. We were impressed with the level of detail submitted about the lambs so when we went to look at them, they were exactly what we expected. We’re really pleased with the lambs, they’re settling in well and enjoying the early summer grass!”

SellMyLivestock was launched last week and already has 425 farmers registered, 1,230 cattle registered on the system and 254 animals now available for sale.
