Livestock Exchange Services

Livestock Exchange are known nationally for their responsive service. We listen, we talk, and we seek to understand farmers' dairy livestock requirements. Then we move rapidly to deliver solutions. Whether it be buying or selling, exporting, leasing, valuation, stock finance, or trading, Livestock Exchange can get it done.

Buying or selling stock for clients is a process we have mastered. We have comprehensive contracts in place, which detail the requirements from the buyer and seller and outline all the conditions which need to be met.

Prior to quoting stock, we have a “COURT SESSION” where we sit down and go thoroughly over the process of buying or selling stock. These sessions are crucial to the overall process and allow us to gauge client needs and objectives, discuss budget constraints and convey precisely how we do business. After this session we are better equipped to tailor a solution.

At Livestock Exchange confidentiality is vital and we recognise that the information disclosed to us is commercially sensitive. The trust farmers place in us to source and sell their livestock is treated with the utmost respect. We are here to get the job done not talk about it.
