Dedicated dairyman has new Partnership role

January 2024

We are delighted to annouce that Andrew Clements has become the newest Partner in the firm. 

Andrew joined the firm in 2010 as a graduate and has rapidly climbed the ranks to be promoted from Associate in 2020 to the firm’s newest Partner.

He focuses on auctioning dairy, calves and machinery at Sedgemoor Auction Centre, Junction 24, North Petherton, which was crowned Auction Mart of the year 2023 by industry experts.

Andrew is part of the leading dairy department which conducts auctions of cattle from across the South of England, Wales and further afield.

Having graduated from the Royal Agricultural College, Cirencester, he joined GTH and learned auctioneering from the bottom up starting with poultry.

Andrew was trained on the calves by Charles Clark and on machinery by Derek Biss, he then graduated to dairy cattle, which is his particular specialism. Indeed, he holds the Sedgemoor auctioneering record for the top priced dairy cow – an impressive 15,000gns.

Welcoming Andrew to the partnership, GTH Chairman, Richard Webber said: “We are delighted that Andrew is joining the GTH partnership, it is a well-deserved promotion and just reward for his dedication and commitment over the years.”

Andrew is thrilled to be joining the partnership.

“It’s exhilarating to be entering my next chapter at GTH, a brand that signifies professionalism, has a huge breadth of expertise and still remains independent.

“My passion is auctioneering and although specialising in dairy cattle I always look forward to the days when we are conducting an auction – there are not many firms that have the expertise to sell almost anything under the hammer, like GTH does!” he said.

The dairy industry is very much in Andrew’s DNA as he hails from North Somerset, where his father farms a dairy herd.

Andrew has built up the pedigree dairy section at Sedgemoor and brought the National Holstein Sale to the venue.
