We are excited to announce the addition of three new members of staff to our livestock team! Yvonne, Matthew and Bethan have all just recently joined NWA to help and support our other auctioneers and fieldsmen and to help increase livestock numbers and grow our customer base.

Yvonne Willison joined in the middle of October as a fieldsman and auctioneers co-ordinator. Yvonne lives in Levens with her husband Rob and son Freddie on a mixed Dairy and Sheep Farm, where they milk 140 pedigree Jerseys and lamb 1200 Mule, Swaledale and Highlander sheep. Every year Yvonne and Rob purchase Bluefaced Leicester Ram Lambs to try and then sell on as Shearlings at the NWA Bluefaced Leicester Sale at J36. She has previously worked at Bentham Auction for 10 years in a marketing administrator role. Yvonne will be based at J36 and works a Monday and Wednesday.

Matthew Middleton joined the NWA Team as a fieldsman in October, from Gisburn, he has previously worked as a Drover and also on farms local to Gisburn. Matthew has always had an ambition to be a fieldsman/auctioneer since a young age having grown up on a farm and spending a lot of time at livestock auctions. Outside of work he has a keen interest in livestock, buying Mule Gimmer Lambs to rear and sell as Shearlings, in which he takes great pride. Matthew is also a very active member of Young Farmers and has competed at many county level stock judging events. Matthew will be based between both sites and you will see him at most sales and can be contacted on 07713 787510.

At the beginning of November we welcomed Bethan Waller to North West Auctions, she has also taken on a role as fieldsman. Originally from Durham, Bethan moved to Bentham in May with her partner Oliver to run a small farm heifer rearing and they also have 60 breeding ewes. In July 2016 Bethan completed a foundation in Agricultural and Land Management and then worked as a cattle preparation clipper and milk recorded. Bethan has a background in Beef and Sheep Farming and enjoys showing Dairy Cattle in her spare time. Bethan will be mainly based at Lancaster but you will also see her at J36, she can be contacted on 07973 852813
