Caledonian loses tender at Oban mart #beefgb

Caledonian Marts has confirmed it has lost its tender at Oban Livestock Centre (OLC) after more than 20 years.


The operation had been put out to tender and it was expected United Auctions would be the new operator. However, this has not yet been confirmed.

 

Disappointed


John Kyle, managing director of Caledonian Marts, said the board was ‘disappointed’ by the decision.


"We have operated this market for over 20 years and have regarded our Oban business as an important part of the company’s operations," he said.


“We regard it a privilege to have had this opportunity to serve the livestock producers in the west – we have enjoyed meeting them as well as working for them, and we hope to maintain our contacts through our market at Stirling, and the company’s representatives who will continue to visit our many friends and customers in the west."

 

United Auctions


George Purves, United Auctions managing director, said: “United Auctions have met with the board of OLC and confirmed our intention of interest to operate the Mart.


“The OLC will communicate its decision with its members when appropriate.”
