New Livestock Auctioneers Association chairman

Newly appointed chairman of the Livestock Auctioneers Association, Robert Addison, who is also managing director of Hexham and Northern Marts, in Northumberland, is looking forward to working hard to ensure livestock producers will continue to be well-served by both auctioneers and the market.

Speaking after the agm, Mr Addison, who has 28 years of experience working as a livestock auctioneer, said he relishes the challenge of his new role and vowed to continue the good work of previous chairman Gwyn Williams.

"Dairy and beef stock commanded record prices through auction markets this summer which helped many producers through one of the toughest summers on record, in terms of poor grazing and economic conditions. We're expecting beef, dairy and lamb prices to hold firm for at least the next six months or so and we'll be working hard to help producers to maximise their income from stock sold in auction rings across the UK throughout the winter, into 2013 and beyond," he said.
