Peter Crichton


Valuation, Auction & Property Consultancy Services


13th January 2017


Despite it being Friday 13th, another fairly positive trading week during a time of year when prices can be notoriously fragile and although the SPP moved back by 0.66p to stand at 151.24p, with one exception, weekly contribution prices remained at similar levels; mainly between 146p and 153p/kg. Spot bacon prices were generally in the 153p/kg region, although there was an extra penny or two available earlier in the week when buyers were looking for extra numbers, but by Friday afternoon most had all they needed.

Peter Crichton FAAV has over 40 years' experience and specialises in providing clients with a wide range of independent professional advice in connection with rural matters including Tenancy Agreements, rent reviews, the sale and valuation of farm machinery, probate, tax and year end valuations. 


Peter is also heavily involved in pig industry consultancy work and markets weaners, finishers and cull sows on a live and deadweight basis throughout the region.
