H&H earmarks Wooler and St Boswell expansion

H&H has claimed there is scope to increase the usage of facilities at both sites.

Harrison and Hetherington (H&H) has announced intentions to expand operations in the Scottish Borders following its acquisition of St Boswells and Wooler Auction Marts last year.


The deal made the firm the largest auctioneering company in the UK and H&H has claimed there is scope to increase the usage of facilities at both sites.

 

Primestock


In a six-month review of the new marts, the firm said the focus was on primestock and store sales.


But it said introducing deadweight collections of cast cows and prime sheep in addition to farm-to-farm sales would offer more options to customers seeking alternative marketing routes.


These are already operating successfully from H&H’s seven other marts in Cumbria and Scotland.

 

Quality


H&H sales director Scott Donaldson said: “Despite an overall reduction in livestock numbers in the area, there remains a concentration of quality livestock in North Northumberland and the Borders.


“From our livestock centres at St Boswells and Wooler we want to work with producers to maximise potential markets.


“I strongly believe there is a major role for livestock auctions to be involved in marketing livestock and, through the marketing network of our nine livestock centres, we are able to offer the most comprehensive and encompassing service to livestock farmers.”
