Jeremy Greenhalgh (25) has been appointed to the newly-created post of Market Manager at Clitheroe Auction Mart.
From a farming background, Jeremy has a degree in Business and Management from Lancaster University as well sales experience in the agricultural sector and with a high street retailer.
An upswing in livestock prices and a strong increase in business going through the popular Auction Mart have led to the creation of the additional management position.

Clitheroe Auction Mart managing director, Robert Parker commented: “We have a strong commitment to encourage as many younger people as possible into what is an increasingly healthy agricultural sector.
