Coronavirus (COVID-19) guidance

23/03/2020
Our priority at ANM Group remains to protect the health and wellbeing of our employees and our customers. We understand clearly the important and vital role our businesses have in the local and national economy and vitally, the food supply chain. We are working extremely hard to ensure competitive trade continues using the variety of routes to market available to ANM.
 
So, our key message is that our marts remain open for business and are operating within appropriate guidelines and adapting to the latest advice. 
 
For the safety of our customers and staff we advise the procedures listed below are followed: –
 
  • Our staff will restrict contact with customers if customers have experienced any Coronavirus symptoms or have come into contact with a positive COVID-19 case
  • Only those who are conducting business should come to any of the mart premises
  • Observe the strict hand hygiene procedures that are in force
  • Maintain a sensible distance between yourself and others – measures will be in place to aid and ensure compliance
  • All Prime and Cast Stock must be booked in for sale to ensure numbers are confirmed – deadline for entries - Wednesday 1.00pm.  Sales entry procedures are unchanged for all other sales
  • Sellers are encouraged to unload without entering the premises in person by contacting staff on arrival
  • It is suggested that sellers consider if they need to attend
  • Any person over the age of 70 or who has underlying health issues is requested NOT to attend
  • Pregnant ladies and children must NOT attend
  • The general public, trade and others not directly involved in sales should not attend
  • Online viewing and bidding facilities are available for most sales including livestock sales with audio and video coverage
  • The Porterhouse Steakhouse and Coffee Bar and Gallery Restaurants will be closed until further notice
 
We continue to monitor Scottish and UK Government and NHS advise around Coronavirus (COVID-19) and will take the necessary steps should the guidance change.
