Why don't you ship door to door in my area?
Our priority is getting livestock to your door with as little stress as possible. This means selecting the quickest option. If we were to ship via on road to parts of Australia that take 2 - 3 days to arrive, livestock would be extremely stressed if not already DOA, for this reason, we only ship via fastways if we can be sure livestock will arrive within 24 hours.
