Uniquely selling stock to buyers and abattoirs across the country
This successful market owes its success to Stags' team of efficient, experienced and knowledgeable auctioneers. By offering competitive live and deadweight pricing, together with prompt payment, Stags has made the market extremely popular with both vendors and major abattoirs across the UK.
The system devised by Stags auctioneers works extremely well; every weekend text messages with prices are sent out, so that producers have an indication of what they will get for their stock prior to presenting them at the livestock market. Before the stock is weighed in, one of Stags' auctioneers will sort through and grade them with the producer, offering valuable feedback. Stags will then look to sell and place the stock to buyers and abattoirs. There is no queuing or hanging around all day; the whole process is fast, efficient and welfare-friendly.
Annually over 50,000 prime lambs/hoggs and 2,000 prime cattle and cull cows are sold as producers take advantage of competitive prices and low deductions.
