The UK’s largest livestock trading company, Harrison and Hetherington, will manage and conduct all pedigree breed society sales on behalf of Newark Livestock Market.
Commencing on 23 March, the first sales to be staged by Harrison and Hetherington will be the Lincoln Red, Simmental and Salers on behalf of their respective breed societies.
Heather Pritchard, pedigree sales and marketing manager for Harrison and Hetherington, said: “We are delighted to have been invited to work with Newark Livestock Market, and together we see this venture as providing a tremendous opportunity for sales and a marketing platform for everyone involved.
“In strengthening our presence within the pedigree sales sector across the southern half of the UK, we, of course, will be working with and on behalf of many of the pedigree breed societies, vendors and purchasers which we already have strong relationships with. We also look forward to meeting and supporting those societies which Newark have individually represented.”
Harrison and Hetherington will complete and administer all of the catalogues for the pedigree and specialist sales, and their team of specialist pedigree auctioneers will take to the rostrum to conduct the sales.
Rachel Gascoine, director of Newark Livestock Market, said: “Harrison and Hetherington are a highly respected livestock auctioneering company and I know that they will work tirelessly on behalf of the many pedigree societies and breeders who use Newark Livestock Market to maximise the potential from each sale.”
“They bring with them some of the most highly respected auctioneers in the country, along with the respect from some of our most highly respected breeders, and as such, I cannot think of a better organisation to work with us on behalf of our customers.”
