Livestock Marketplace to be Featured in
2015 Holiday Film 'Mr. Pig.'
November 3, 2014. EAGLE POINT, OR. Livestock of America is an online livestock marketplace that will be featured in the upcoming Diego Luna film “Mr. Pig.” Starring actors Danny Glover and Maya Rudolph, the film is due out for the holiday season in 2015 and will feature the Livestock of America website. In the film, Glover’s character tries to sell his beloved pig and uses the Livestock of America marketplace to find a new owner. “We’re hoping that our few minutes on the big screen will bring a lot of attention to our marketplace and the animals listed there,” says John Andresen owner of The ANDRESENGROUP and creator of Livestock of America. The film is a “road movie” set in Mexico, and will have an international release across theaters.
Livestock of America is a unique website that promotes animals across multiple livestock industries. Recently launched, and after just a few months of being “live” has a membership of over 700 ranches from 40 states in the U.S. and 2 Canadian provinces. Plus, just last month, the website has been viewed in 89 countries. Plans for UK and Asian versions of the marketplace website are also in the works.
Livestock of America offers a wide range of annual memberships ranging from a free 4H and FFA student membership to Gold Memberships ($98.00 a year). New to the site are memberships that also include professional, custom-built websites for ranches or businesses. They feature automatic updates of data from the custom-built websites to the Livestock of America site. “This unique feature saves each rancher a lot of time managing their content,” says Andresen. The marketplace includes livestock listings such as: horses, cattle, working dogs, donkeys, goats, alpacas, llamas, and sheep.
The ANDRESENGROUP, an Oregon marketing and design firm, created the Livestock of America website to meet the demand for both in-industry and cross-industry marketing. On the site, member ranches can list their animals and products, and the general public can view and purchase animals, products, property, and livestock businesses for sale from across the globe.
Since Livestock of America markets to major livestock industries, it gets animals of numerous types in front of ranchers that normally wouldn’t consider a particular type of animal for their ranch. “For instance, a small cattle rancher that lists their bred cows for sale is likely to take a few minutes to check out goats or sheep. “Or a horse rancher who’s looking to buy a Stallion may consider looking at a few high-end Suri alpacas while they are on the site,” says Andresen.
Livestock of America includes information on ranches, including farm profiles categorized by state or region to help users find farms nearby to network and market their animals. The site also includes advertising programs for livestock owners to create a successful online advertising program with many different opportunities to boost their marketing. In addition, there are categories to sell products, fiber, and apparel.
“The property and business listing tools are another way for ranchers (or those new to the ranching industry) to find an established business to buy, or a property suited to specific types of livestock,” says Andresen. “For example if you were looking for a horse farm that already has horse barns and riding arenas or a property fenced specifically for cattle or alpacas – we can help you find it” says Andresen.
“Many livestock owners also have more than one type of animal, but have to use multiple websites across multiple industries to list their animals. That’s a lot of passwords, sites, and information to keep track of,” says Andresen. Livestock of America is one website, accessible to ranches large and small. Memberships start at just $19.95 per year.
“Livestock of America looks great,” said Sheri Hewitt of Woodland Meadows LLC, an Oregon Livestock Ranch. The website has a clean, modern, easy-to-use design that makes it inviting and easily accessible for all.
Just this week, Livestock of America was viewed by people in 33 countries beyond North America - including the Philippines, Australia, Brazil, The Netherlands, Pakistan, Spain, South Africa, and many more. “It's very exciting to see the site getting exposure across the globe,” said Andresen. Livestock of America may be exactly what ranchers need to promote and elevate their businesses around the world.
