Following a significant increase in demand for Livestock services over the past 12 months, Grasstec continues to expand its team of representatives on the ground. With 3 new agents in Ireland and UK the company is now well positioned to continue to deliver a domestic and exporting livestock trading service in Ireland, UK, Europe and beyond.

Ben Furnival joins us as a UK representative primarily through the midlands region. Ben has significant experience in livestock trading from 8 years as a livestock auctioneer in Cheshire and Staffordshire. Ben is also in charge of LKL services in the Midlands and so is close to a considerable network of farmers in that region.

Taking up to baton in Wales is Nigel Howells, who runs a long established consultancy business based in Pembrokeshire. This business focuses on giving practical advice on day-to-day farming issues, including grass & forage management, cow nutrition, soil matters and livestock genetics. Nigel’s link to Grasstec Livestock Services now brings a new string to his bow as an outlet for those looking to buy or sell stock in the region.

“The expansion of our livestock team, coupled with our partners in Europe now provides dairy farmers in Ireland & UK more opportunity to use Grasstec as the medium to trade livestock. We are now in a position to satisfy both buyers and sellers of all types of stock, from grazing crossbreds to high input Holstein and from block calving systems to flying herds”
