Report on 2017 Auction Sale of Hay & Straw

The Adkin Annual Sale of Hay & Straw held at Ardington, Oxfordshire on Tuesday 10th January 2017 met with a better than expected trade.  With buyers present from across the country and beyond all classes of hay and straw met with a good demand.  Given the mild winter to date and reports of very disappointing trade for hay elsewhere the hay trade well exceeded expectations.  Straw was again a good trade and in strong demand and more could have been sold to advantage.


Company Promotion

Adkin are delighted to announce that Jess has passed her CAAV exams and has been promoted to the position of Senior Surveyor to reflect her hard work and increased responsibilities within the business.
