DISPERSAL sales will be coming to the Whitchurch area later this month and next month.

There will be a further retirement dispersal sale for the estate of the late Peter Groom at Halghton Grove Farm, Penley, near Wrexham on July 26.

And on Friday, August 18, a complete dispersal sale of farm implements, machinery, tools and collectables will take place at Cuddington, near Malpas.

It comes as part of a busy month for regional livestock and machinery auctioneers, Halls who have several sales taking place across Shropshire and Wales.

Senior auctioneer Jonny Dymond, manager of Shrewsbury Auction Centre, expressed his enthusiasm, stating: “It’s definitely one of the company’s busiest months for sales.

"In addition to our weekly livestock markets in Shrewsbury and Bishops Castle, we have a sale every Saturday during July and are already taking bookings for the autumn.”


Halls are also hosting the 14th Annual Show and Sale of Traditional, Native and Rare Breeds, incorporating the National Sale of Shropshire Sheep and the Midlands sale of Valais Blacknose on Saturday, July 15.

The National Sale of Suffolk Sheep follows on Saturday, July 30, both at Shrewsbury Auction Centre.

Halls’ chairman Allen Gittins, who is organising a dispersal sale at Penley, added: “There are various reasons for the farm dispersal sales, including retirement, change of farming policy and, sadly, the owners passing away.

“There is also a strong trade for second-hand farm machinery, so it’s a good time to take advantage of the buoyant market. These dispersal sales always attract a good crowd, as the farming community likes to support fellow farmers and are keen to buy genuine machinery that has been used on the farm.”
