Sheep Farmer of the Year

Mart's the Heart 2019

Livestock auctions are the hub of the countryside. Farmers are facing challenging times, with a difficult year last year, an uncertain future and there are a lot of mental health problems. Markets are a place where farmers can come together and feel comfortable and meet up with friends as well as do business.

Sponsoring the Mart's the Heart awards is a way of supporting both the auction market system and our own customers.
