Auctioneers, Greenslade Taylor Hunt, who operate Sedgemoor Auction Centre, at Junction 24, North Petherton, have welcomed a new Partner and Associate to the business. The multi-faceted property and auctioneering specialists have elevated dairy auctioneers Sally Mitchell and Andrew Clements to their respective new positions within the firm.

Alongside one of the business’s longest serving partners, Derek Biss, they form the dairy team who, in the past 12 months, have sold over 10,000 dairy cows under the hammer making them the most active dairy auctioneers in the country.

The three of them combined have over 70 years’ worth of experience in both auctioneering and selling dairy cattle privately and, having conducted 25 dispersal sales in 2019, they have a wide range of up-to-date knowledge of the market place and what customers really want.

On the new appointments, Derek Biss commented: “These two dedicated individuals ensure the very best for all of our clients. They work tirelessly from initially visiting clients on farm and giving advice, through to the whole marketing procedure and then standing on the rostrum with the gavel selling the stock. Greenslade Taylor Hunt’s decision to bring these two individuals to the heart of the business will ensure that we maintain the best quality and modern service that we can.”
