GVM Tullamore has announced that it is postponing its weekly weanling, cattle and sheep sales under further notice.
The action is being taken in the interest of loyal staff, their families, customers and their families and wider public, according to mart manager, Antoinette Daly.
“As the number of people getting this virus is increasing everyday, we feel if we don’t stop and take guidance from the experts in the health organisation, this pandemic will only get worse.”
“As our elders always taught us, your health is your wealth. We need to stop and think before this totally gets out of control.”
“We hope the farmers understand our decision – it was not easy to do this, but we feel the quicker we try stop this virus getting out of hand, the quicker we can look forward to returning to business.”
“Do look after yourselves in the meantime and keep safe.” Daly concluded.
