NSA Scottish Region reminds farmers to continue to follow Covid guidance

19th August 2020

As we head into the busy autumn sale period, NSA Scottish Region is calling on buyers, sellers and hauliers using livestock markets to be aware of and continue to follow the guidelines put in place to ensure everyone’s safety during the continued coronavirus uncertainty.

NSA Scottish Region Chairman Jen Craig comments: “The Institute of Auctioneers and Appraisers in Scotland (IAAS) have done amazing work to ensure markets remain open and have provided risk assessments and protocols to keep everyone safe. There are still many sales to come in the next couple of months and it would be incredibly disappointing if the actions of a few were to cause serious repercussions for others and the markets themselves.

“Our thanks must go to Neil Wilson and everyone else at IAAS for all the hard work they have done and will continue to do during this time to allow us all to continue as normally as possible. I would implore everyone to adhere to the rules - the industry cannot afford at this critical stage to get this wrong.”

All information on the current guidance is available on the IAAS website.
