‘New Age in Promoting Livestock & Agri Products’
Why Was Premium Promotions Set-Up?
In April 2020, while Ireland was in full lockdown our website was born, in the hope of finding a new legal avenue to sell our Livestock through a competition based system…instead of raffling on facebook.
Based in Tuam, Co. Galway, Premium Promotions is owned by Michelle & Norman Connolly. Norman runs an 85 suckler & 50 incalf heifer herd.
“The idea we had was to develop a website where Livestock and Agricultural products could be WON at a fraction of their original cost through a Competition using a Skill based entry system. Marts were looking like they were closing and the fear of no outlet to sell animals loomed, we had to look outside the box.”
What Prizes are in the Competitions?
All the animal and prizes that have been sourced and won have ranged between Incalf heifers, breeding heifer, Show heifers, Sheep, Trailers, Tool kits and many more. We have picked the best animals currently in our herd, now we are looking to find other prizes from outside our farm.
We have branched out and worked with other companies and breeders. Such as Ivybrook Suffolk, who wanted us to do 2 of his Suffolk Ewe Lambs and he made a donation of all his proceeds to The Irish Cancer Society. O’Haire Trailers in Kilmaine who collaborated with us to first do a Builders Trailer and later we went on to doing a Livestock Trailer. We were also approached by Chris Meehan, his Incalf Cow and Heifer calf sold out in 6 hrs on the site and Niamh Oliver who after seeing the success that Chris had decided to run a Competition for 3 of her Beltex Ewe Lambs, and they went to a lovely new home in Leitrim.
We continue to get interest from other breeders wanting to get involved with us to put their animals up for a Competition. We are in talks with some quality breeders who want to use us. As the summer shows have been cancelled, we hope to provide an outlet for them to a new avenue for their quality animals.
How does It Work?
Each competition has a set number of entries and price per entry ranges from €12-50. You enter the competition by answering the entry question correctly. This then allows you to enter the competition and pay an entry fee. You will receive an email confirming your entry to the competition and the entry number. Once all the numbers are filled for that competition we then do a draw Live on Facebook where the winner is picked by a random number generator.
We have a few exciting weeks ahead with further expansion and some very appealing sell out competitions coming your way. If you are interested in putting one of your A-rated, Pedigree animals up for a competition, please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org or send us a message on Facebook with all the details and current photographs of the animal.
