Shetland Livestock Marketing Group (SLMG) is the key service provider for the Shetland agricultural community.

Champion Bull Recent upgrades and developments to its range of services has strengthened that position and made membership a particularly attractive proposition:

  • The new abattoir is now completed and fully licenced for cattle, sheep, goats and pigs.
  • Shetland Mart has undergone a range of improvements including new roller doors, the weighbridge has been fitted with new electronics, fire doors have been replaced, a fully compliant catering kitchen has been fitted and a redesigned cattle handling system has improved stock welfare and made handling more efficient.
  • We are implementing a new marketing strategy and building links with Promote Shetland and other agencies to raise our profile
  • SLMG has been transferred to a Ben Comm (cooperative for the benefit of the community), which will safeguard the facility and its assets from any future threats
  • With the advice and supervision of the Scottish Agricultural Organisations Society (SAOS) and our accountants, a trading company has been formed to handle contractual and business affairs associated with SLMG
