About Norton & Brooksbank

Company Profile

Norton & Brooksbank Company Profile

Christopher Norton selling with Tom Brooksbank assisting.
Christopher Norton and Tom Brooksbank founded their partnership based in Cirencester, Gloucestershire in 1983.

The principal activity of the firm is the sale by auction of pedigree and commercial dairy cattle. The firm has been privileged to conduct most of the top sales of pedigree Holsteins in the last 25 years, but is equally adept at marketing 500 commercial dairy cattle. In recent times we have added beef cattle and farm machinery to our repertoire.

The firm has a team of highly efficient staff, well skilled in:

  • the preparation of sale catalogues
  • conducting on farm sales or at various centres
  • professional work in valuations/expert witnesses/claims
  • selling stock from farm to farm
  • buying cattle to order
  • valuations for any purpose
  • auction sales of farm machinery
  • trading milk quotas

The considerable expertise of the team, with the two partners providing over 50 years rostrum experience between them makes N&B the first choice in marketing your stock.
