Lodge & Thomas have a Private Treaty Department for sales privately, direct from the producer to you. Throughout the year we have various items for sale, ranging from pedigree breeding bulls, dairy stock and stock from TB-restricted farms, fodder including standing grass, baled silage, hay, straw, farming and dairy equipment.   

We also deal in the sale and purchase of Basic Payment Entitlements for which 2018 trading is open and will run up to the 15th May deadline.  

Please find below out latest Private Treaty Sales which we have now made clearer and more accessible on our website with this new Private Treaty page which contains an up-to-date register of everything we have available.  

If you are interested in any of the items we have for sale or would be interested in discussing your marketing options with us either by telephone or on-farm through our fieldsman, Patrick Dennis, who is happy to pay you a visit, please contact us.
