Border Livestock Exchange Ltd

 

Border Livestock Exchange Ltd conducted the Farm Sale at Bowshiel Farm on Monday 3rd August on behalf of Messrs J White who were restructuring their business, the sale was conducted online with sealed offers .

This online tender system proved to be extremely popular and very well supported , resulting in both a high clearance rate and many of the prices being well in excess of the vendors expectations.

With a closing time set for Monday 12 noon the girls were swamped with an incredible 465 people registering offers before 10am .

Our regular collective machinery sale at Kelso Racecourse was also held with the farm sale . Owing to everything being sold in situ there were no distance issues to Kelso which meant a Manitou was advertised and sold from Perth in the North and 3 tractors sold from the Newcastle area.

With the current Covid 19 restrictions in place this online option, although secondary,  lacking in social interaction and atmosphere it was however a great success .

Whilst we are not advertising the final selling prices due to this being a closed offer system . We would invite anyone interested in values or prices to give the Border Livestock Team a call , when we will be pleased to discuss any of the items with you .

Happy 25th Anniversary to Border Livestock Exchange – 19th June 1995 at 7am –

25 years old today — we are now the longest established Livestock marketing company in the Borders Hoorah .

Just an insight into the past 25 years

We’ve been really fortunate to come through BSE , F & M , E Coli , Blue Tongue , F & M , Horse Meat Scandal , Vegan Fever then Covid-19 ..

We’re extremely grateful to all of our terrific customers, family supporters, importantly it’s all been made possible with many thanks to Emma and her Team Border Livestock .

Farm sales and auctions have always been our thing with our first sale at Springwood Park selling Store Lambs, Braidhaugh Farm, Bonchester Bridge which was followed soon after ( all pre millennium ) at Bonjedward Mill , Westfield R, Lanton J, Larkhall , Jordonlaw , Rosebrough, Nether Huntlywood , 14 Lamberton , Wyndhead / Thirlestane Castle , Newton J , Cleughhead BB, stock reduction sales at Bairnekine , Eastfield of Lempitlaw ,Falla, Lough House, Yarrow Village Hall, Catslackburn.

Since 2000 we’ve averaged 6 farm sales per annum from Port William to Newcastle with the pinnacle being Newmills L ( incl Boon L ) hosted by the popular Waldie Family presenting an amazing 8 Combines and 17 tractors to a crowd of in excess of 3,000 people .

2001 : first virtual Ram Sale at Springwood Park .

21st November 2001 : 3 farm sales and a collective sale all held at Kelso Racecourse brilliantly directed by the late Andrew Rennie Berryhill .
We’ve enjoyed a great relationship with the team at Kelso Racecourse ( Britain’s friendliest racecourse ) and held Spring and Autumn sales every year since .

Clearance auctions have included ..

A fire Station and plumbers yard , engineering business , large commercial offices , Hotel Group , French Property Auctions , Border Property Auctions , Glasgow Outdoor retail business , Vintage Car Auction , Straw Auctions , Horse & Tack Sale at Mervinslaw ,

Farm to Farm Sales , Breeding stock and Stores

We have established an enormous customer base for selling and buying stock from farm to farm . This was due to embracing and developing the new digital technologies which enabled us to create our user friendly website .
Social Media , Facebook / Twitter then worked hand in hand giving us even wider UK coverage .

Private sales have become an ever increasing part of our daily business with customers spread the length and breadth of the country .

We advertised our logo fittingly as

“ Causing less stress to both livestock and producers “

Finally and due to COVID-19

Our 25th anniversary celebrations are being held this evening on zoom : 🥃 cheers everyone 🥩

We pride ourselves on making a professional job while enjoying a good team atmosphere .

The pictures are mainly of our early years , 95 – 2000 then the epic Newmills . .

Farm Sale Testimonial by Robert Jackson, Detchant Farm, Belford

Due to a change in farming policy, Messrs J R Jackson of Detchant Farm, Belford required a Farm Sale. I asked Border Livestock Exchange to sell this equipment on my behalf.

Jamie Logan came to see me on the 20th April and amazingly by the 1st May, the machinery had all been sold.

No one came to view the machinery, it was sold purely as a Virtual Farm Sale. The skilled description of the items, was very accurate and gave prospective purchasers enough confidence to bid without anyone even coming onto the farm.

The machinery was all sold on Friday 1st May with everything concluded and full payment made on the day.

Due to the current circumstances with Corona Virus, this was a first class job.

Well done to all the Border Livestock Team!!! Thank you .

Robert Jackson on behalf of Messrs J R Jackson, Detchant Farm.
