A.M.M.O. Ltd offers its producers instore classing appointments where the producer brings his clip to the store and stays to watch it being classed.
Producers are encouraged to avail themselves of this service as it involves all facets of store classing and preparation of their clip. Valuable information and advice regarding individual clips is provided and this service is offered to A.M.M.O.Ltd clients free of charge. A.M.M.O.

To help producers with on-farm cash-flow, an advance payment of $2 per kilogram gross weight can be made on consignments delivered prior to the close of receivals of any season.
Advance payment is made on condition that this payment amount is deducted from the final sale account and paid in the same manner as payments os sale proceeds. Should the total sale amount be less than the advance the producers becomes liable for any difference.
We encourage producers to prepare their fibre to the required industry standard. There are obvious financial benefits to well prepared clips ( i.e. well prepared fibre helps to maximise potential returns.
Well prepared fibre also receives a lower classing charge.)
All producers who attempt to class to industry standards and include a detailed specification sheet/s will receive a personalised CLASSER’S REPORT from A.M.M.O.Ltd.
