When many people think of high pressure sales techniques they think of the techniques that sellers use to pressure people into buying things, or into paying a high price. In my experience selling sheep I have actually encountered a few buyers who use pressure to try to get me to lower the price.
Of course typically I will lower the price a bit on sheep from time to time, but what I am talking about is when I have already negotiated a price and the buyer then comes up with some reason why I should lower it further.
I had one jerk that I actually did let myself get bullied by several years ago. It was winter. One of my ewes had got herself stuck in a feed trough and died, leaving two orphaned lambs (about 2 weeks old). Another ewe had rejected one of her lambs, so I had 3 bottle baby lambs in the middle of winter and I was working away from home at the time too. It was simply too much work for me. I had other ewes for sale at the time too because I was very short of cash and needed to pay some bills. I had negotiated a price for all the sheep over the phone with a buyer. He lived 2 hours away, and while he was on route to come and get the sheep I actually turned away other interested buyers because to me they were "sold".
When the guy got here he said that I should lower my price because he had to come from so far away. Then he said I should lower my price because he thought 2 of the ewes were older than I had stated, which I know was false. I had already caught all the sheep and put them in a pen ready to go. Catching and separating sheep is a lot of work, not something I wanted to do again. I did not keep the phone numbers of the other buyers, I was at a loss. So I gave in. I was furious at myself for allowing him to bully me like that.
I really do not mind being fair to other people, offering a reasonable price, but it is not my fault if a buyer lives far away. It does not lower the value of my sheep if a buyer lives father away. I just do not like bullies!
