Please make sure to read all information regarding auctions on our notices page before attending to either sell or purchase livestock. Thank you.

We would like to thank all the sheep producers that have made the sheep section at Norwich Livestock Market grow to the fantastic numbers we are now seeing. The quality is excellent. We can only see this section growing as the sheep numbers generally increase in Norfolk and Suffolk.

To help us to help you, we do need to have notification of the numbers you will be sending on market day.  On 18th January I was expecting approx 200 sheep and over 600 were presented for sale which is wonderful but when we speak to potential buyers on Thursday and Fridays pre-sale day, and we inform them of declared numbers, then if 400 extra appear, we are unable to contact these buyers so late as the morning of the sale. We have lots of possibilities for your sheep to be placed so a simple text, phone call or online entry would make our job much easier to achieve a better job for you.  Whether it is fat lambs, cull ewes, breeding sheep or store lambs, please help us to help you.

Richard Criddle is our sheep fieldsman/sheep grader so if you are unsure if your sheep are fit to kill or not, speak to Richard. Please come early as he is very happy to handle your sheep with you and advise you as to which sections they are most suitable for.  Although the decision will always be yours, it is our endeavour to supply the different sections with the product that is required. Another important issue is that we need to start on time at 10.30am - the earlier you can book in, the smoother the operation of the whole of the sale day.

Any feedback or questions are welcomed. Please phone us on 01603 502690 or use the online entry form.

Assuring you of our best attention at all times.
