We Want Your Prime Cattle – Please Support The Live Ring

  • Each week we are short of buyers’ requirements for all types of prime steers and heifers; we have active buyers for all types of prime cattle, especially for retail butchers and the wholesale trade.

  • Our team of auctioneers and field staff will be delighted to undertake on-farm visits to discuss how we can assist finishers in marketing their prime cattle to maximum advantage.

  • In a genuine endeavour to encourage your support of the live ring - and for a three month trial period - we are offering to sell your prime cattle at a fixed commission of £20.00 per head.

Please contact: Libby 07818 435728 or Ryan 07733 362389 or Sam 07584 207323
