United Auctions

150 years of Livestock Auctioneering

United Auctions are Scotland’s leading livestock auctioneers. They approached us to produce a short documentary that demonstrated the depth and scope of their organisation in its 150th year.

We travelled to Lairg, Tiree, Huntly, Kelso and Stirling filming cattle and sheep auctions, farm sales as well as interviewing staff, customers and farmers. The film features a voiceover from BBC broadcaster Euan McIlwraith and a contribution from First Minister Alex Salmond MSP. It is an integral part of United Auctions’ marketing portfolio and has attracted over 60,000 views on YouTube.

“James Alcock Films crafted a corporate film that expertly captures the essence of our business. Subtle, modern and engaging, the film has real heart and is a valuable marketing tool.”
