LIVESTOCK MARKETS TO CONTINUE
Livestock markets are to continue to ensure food supply routes are not interrupted.
After the first week of livestock markets during the pandemic restrictions at Holsworthy, Hallworthy and Exeter, Kivell’s wish to send a big thank you to all their work colleagues, participating vendors and buyers. The way in which they have all embraced the “drop and go” and “social distancing” protocols at each stage of the livestock market operation, and within all centres has been fantastic. These measures in line with Government Guidelines maximise safety for all.
As the markets go forward safety protocols will be enhanced and developed as necessary - thank you to all in anticipation of further full cooperation in this regard.
Kivells through the Livestock Auctioneers Association (of which David Kivell is national Chairman for 2020) and direct through our local MPs are feeding information back to Westminster on the way in which the livestock markets are performing and playing their part in ensuring food chain routes are sustained during the crisis faced by the Country.
This week's store and prime stock auctions at all three centres are providing food not just for now, but for the months to come and we urge that wherever possible, normal seasonal sales continue helping all involved to properly feed the nation.
The role of farming in our country has not been in sharper focus, and the need for our routes of food supply to remain constant has not been so important, since the war years.
