StockX has been announced as winner of the prestigious Beef + Lamb NZ Sheep Industry Awards - 2017 Tru-Test Innovation Award held in Invercargill last week.

The concept – which uses technology not available 20 years ago - represents a step-change in the industry and has challenged the status-quo when it comes to trading livestock."

Thanks must go to those Farmers who have taken the lead, supported and enjoyed better trading outcomes with StockX. We’re not quite two years old and have engaged with thousands of farmers across all regions of New Zealand. We are enjoying the industry collaboration and have more extensions to the current platform to come. Watch this space.”
