Hexham and Northern Marts
With a genuine love for the livestock industry, Drew champions the work of producers with honesty and hard work. He feels it is an honour to sell on behalf of a producer and a duty to give 100%, marketing their stock in the best possible way. Drew feels fortunate to be regularly selling Cast and Prime Cattle, Cast Sheep and at the successful Friday Store Lamb Sale.
Drew told us, ‘It was a huge honour to be nominated. It makes me feel very proud and it’s good to have feedback like this indicating that customers are happy with the services I am providing. Clients just nominated me without my knowledge – it was a huge shock when I found out I was nominated!
Winning feels like an amazing achievement which I’m still struggling to believe. It is a massive honour to be recognized for my work, by my clients and colleagues. It’s a good feeling to know your hard work is appreciated.
The Marts the Heart awards are a great showcase for the auction industry and feel they are a great way for auctioneers to get the recognition they deserve in these trying times, where there is a lot more pressure on their shoulders compared to previous years. They also highlight the need for auction marts and their role within the rural community.’
