Who we are
Peter Jones Livestock Ltd was established in 2002 by Peter Jones and has grown rapidly to become one of the biggest privately owned livestock marketing consultancy companies in the UK. Peter has spent 30 years in the livestock marketing sector and has gained experience in the marketing of all categories of livestock and particularly cattle. Since setting up PJL Peter has supplied beef units with the cattle required to make the unit function profitably. “My aim is to match the type of cattle to the beef unit to enable the unit to return a profit” says Peter. The one thing you can be certain of is that if you buy cattle from PJL they will be exactly as described in terms of size, weight, breed and condition.
The business operates a modern livestock procurement system to supply beef producers with the raw material to produce beef and operates throughout the UK.
The store cattle side of the business is able to supply continental breeds of cattle, Charolais, Simmental, British Blue and Limousins, both out of the suckler herd and the dairy herd. British Friesian and Holstein steers are also available as well as native breeds, Hereford, Angus, Shorthorns, South Devons and Stabilisers. The native breeds particularly suit organic and grazing systems.
Breeding stock is also supplied, from bulling heifers, in calf cows and heifers and cows and heifers with calves.
TB restricted cattle are available on an ongoing basis. At any one time we can supply groups of stock of varied numbers and sizes, mainly in the West and South West of the country. If you are considering setting up an Approved Finishing Unit (AFU) we have expertise in this area and can provide free advice and assistance with paperwork connected with applying for an AFU and apply for the licensing of movements on your behalf. We can also offer advise on setting up a TB Isolation unit.
PJL Ltd now offer a comprehensive service to market all aspects of dairy cattle. We have on offer a complete range of Dairy replacements of all ages; milking cows, stock bulls and embryos.
In 2018 Peter joined the Board of Directors of The Organic Livestock Marketing Co-operative (OLMC) and in conjunction with them PJL market organic cattle and store lambs.
