Our Livestock Market dates back to 1900 and we are immensely proud to be the only weekly Livestock Auction in operation in East Anglia. Our weekly auction, held on a Tuesday, provides clients with the opportunity to source primestock from farmers located in Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk, Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire. Cattle and sheep are purchased by butchers, wholesalers and other buyers who appreciate the quality primestock, efficient service and bustling atmosphere that the Stanfords Weekly Livestock Market provides.
