Single Farm payments

Aberdeen & Northern Marts are accepting entries for their first auction of the season for Single Farm Payment Entitlements in the New Year.

The sale will be held at the Thainstone Centre, Inverurie on Friday, January 11 at 2pm.

This will be the first of six fortnightly sales to be held at the centre.

Thainstone pioneered auctions of SFP entitlements in 2006 and it is seen by traders as a benchmark for prices.

The sale will again be conducted using a combination of live bidding and the ANM Group’s on-line bidding system, eBid@liveauction.

Alan Donald of Aberdeen & Northern Marts said: “There has already been a lot of interest shown in our opening sale, especially from potential buyers from all over Scotland. We already have a number of lots entered.”

Entries for the sale will close on Monday, January 7 at 5pm.
