Jan 13, 2013
To date, the site has posted over 1,000 listings, which translates into more than 108,000 head of animals listed.
Since launching a year ago, Cattle-Exchange.com has helped buyers and sellers come together to trade cattle. To date, the site has posted over 1,000 listings, which translates into more than 108,000 head of animals listed, and has been visited by more than 100,000 people and received more than 1 million individual page views. Now the site is seeing both buyers and sellers coming back to the site to trade cattle. In January to date, the site is seeing repeat sellers, which were 10% so far.
"I would not have found the replacement females I was looking for had it not been for Cattle-Exchange." says Bill Dix from Iowa. He saw the cattle he wanted in Kansas and went right to them, saving a lot of time and money.
The benefit for buyers on the site is that it allows you to search for the type of cattle you are looking for and narrow results based on geographic location, breed and more. For sellers, Cattle-Exchange.com allows you to provide detailed information on what interests buyers and also post videos and photos, which brings in more page views and potential buyers.
A buyer recently posted on Cattle-Exchange.com's Facebook page: "Thanks Cattle-Exchange for hooking me up with the cattle seller. I picked up what appears to be a great large herd at a reasonable price today."
