IAAS COVID-19 Action Plan

The proposal for continued mart operation during a lock down period is as follows:

Farmers delivering livestock to auction marts

• Deliveries made to marts as normal via livestock trailers/hauliers. Hauliers/farmers to unload livestock into pen beside loading bay. Farmer/haulier to leave premises.

• Mart staff to collect livestock from the loading bay pens and pen up in the mart.

• Mart staff collect required paperwork from driver across biosecurity line or via email (preferable) ensuring maximum social distance is maintained.

Buyers coming to auction marts to purchase livestock

• Any buyer must pre-register their attendance at any sale.

• Buyer must declare that they have not been in contact with a positive COVID-19 case nor have visited a high-risk area during the previous 14 days.

• Buyers to sign in and out of auction mart premises.

• Only pre-registered buyers will be allowed access to the mart.

• Buyers will be advised to keep a distance of 2 metres from each other around the auction ring. All rings have sufficient space to accommodate this spacing and marking of areas recommended.

• Suitable bio-security measures will be in place and available • hand washing facilities/hand gels/foot dips etc. Buyers will be expected to use these on entry and exit.

• No additional visitors will be admitted to the mart on sale days outside of key staff and registered buyers.

Removal of stock post auction

• Hauliers/farmers arrive at mart in normal manner; however, they are to remain in vehicles until loading bay space becomes available.

• Reverse to loading bays and, from a safe distance, inform the mart staff of consignment to collect.

• Mart staff to deliver livestock to pens beside loading bays and haulier/farmer should complete the loading of the lorry/trailer. Mart staff to share paperwork with driver as required across the biosecurity line. Mart staff to retain maximum social distance possible from vehicle driver.

• Haulier/farmer leaves the site.
