We are living in unprecedented times and understandably we are all concerned for our families, friends and colleagues. I wanted to reassure you that the board of Mitchells are doing everything we can to ensure the wellbeing of our people and our business. This situation is likely to last a longer time than we would hope for; the Board is meeting regularly to discuss how we best continue serving our customers to the extent possible whilst complying with the various restrictions and ensuring the safety and health of our people. If you have any ideas as to what we should be doing please be in touch by email.
Currently our staff are in various situations, some working on site, some working from home, some ‘isolating’ because of possible symptoms or vulnerable health issues and some ‘furloughed’ : a new term to most of us!
The board is very proud of the professionalism, dedication and resourcefulness of everyone within the organisation and we are sure that
Things are changing on a daily basis and it is a problem keeping in touch with everyone, we are putting this message out on social media, emails etc. and if you are aware of anyone who might not have received it please let us know.
Once again, thank you for your unwavering support, please follow advice, keep safe and keep in touch.
Mitchells Livestock Auctioneers and Valuers will provide a fair, enjoyable and competitive livestock market for all it’s customers, thus making the Company as successful as possible for the benefit of the local farming community, shareholders and staff.
Mitchells moved from their town centre site to their new multi-million pound, multifunctional site in 2002.
The market plays a pivotal role in hosting many of the upland breeding sheep sales in Cumbria and is renowned as the centre for the Herdwick sheep.
The Lakeland Livestock Centre offers a critical service to the rural community and a vital link in the food supply chain. The facilities offer the opportunity for large and small producers alike to market their animals to UK wide breeders, feeders and abattoirs.
