LATEST NEWS - GAVEL - MARCH 2020 - ..
LATEST NEWS - Trade as usual despite Coronovirus outbreak - ..
LATEST NEWS - Fortnightly Sheep Sales - Sheep sales will be held less regularly from the beginning of February although some dates will be..
We feel that, for the next 2 weeks, in the interests of our staff, our customers and the wider community, the only responsible option is to follow Government guidelines and avoid gathering, not only customers together, but also our own staff, many of whom have vulnerable family members and young children at home.
It is our intention to hold a sale on 13th April, as planned, but we will keep you posted via our Facebook and Orkney Mart website, with any updates.
We are aware that there will be some folk out there who were counting on being able to sell livestock now, and likewise, we have buyers who were counting on being able to buy cattle. Therefore, we are more than happy to come to see your cattle and match them up with a purchaser. They would be weighed here at the Mart before being moved on, and put through our system at an agreed price, therefore avoiding the uncertainty of the Market, until things settle down a bit. On Monday (30th March) we successfully sold 260 Store Cattle and OTM Cattle privately in the Mart to our buyers. We have more cattle booked for private sale on Monday (6th April) and have plenty space for more. IF the sale advertisd on the (13th April) does not go ahead as planned, we will continue to sell them in the Mart that day via private sale.
If this is of interest to you please get in touch with Graham or George Low on these numbers –
Graham – 07833459120
George – 07936441357
or, you can phone the office, between 10am and 1pm, where there will be one member of the office staff available to speak to you regarding this or any other queries you may have.
SO, TO RECAP –
Orkney Auction Mart is closed to the public until Monday, 13th April.
We are selling store and OTM Cattle privately in the Mart on Monday 6th April.
We are intending to conduct a sale of Store Cattle on 13th April as planned.
The office will be “manned” between the hours of 10am and 1pm, Monday to Friday - We are here to answer any queries.
Hopefully, if we all abide by the rules –
“Short term pain will mean a long term gain”
Keep safe – Our best regards – The staff at Orkney Auction Mart
