Auctioneer of the Year 2017

Russell Steer

Exeter Livestock Centre

“I have been fascinated by the industry ever since I was a young child and would attend Exeter market with my dad and uncle and look up at the auctioneer and say ‘I want to do that’. I spent four years at Bentham Auction before returning five years ago to Kivells for my dream job as its lead sheep auctioneer. Since then I have lifted the profile of Exeter’s sheep sales, drastically increased throughput and more recently became a company director.”
