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 . .
