Do you wear a country tweed cap? Do you always throw on a quilted jacket when you’re going to the mart?

To celebrate the recent launch of our weekly ‘Live in Livestock’ series, we thought it would be ideal to throw our hand at providing a description of the ‘signature’ livestock dealing look!

With a keen eye for fashion within the farming circles, our Catherina has pinpointed a number of fashion trends rocking livestock marts throughout the country.

Country tweed cap

You’re aswell to dress up to the nines from the bottom to the top! It’s best to start with a stylish country tweed cap, which ends up being the icing on the cake in a lot of cases!

Checkered shirt

Checkered shirts and country always go together! Here’s a prime example of what female livestock dealers wear!

Jumper

Naturally enough, with the shirt comes the famous jumper! Dealers are not too fussy when it comes to purchasing jumpers, they just have to match the shirt!

Quilted Jacket

You have to look professional when you’re doing the Biz and a ‘neat’ quilted jacket can make you look just the part!

Jeans

Jeans of all shape, sizes, trends and colours are worn, with a ‘fine’ back pocket being the ultimate selling point! We wonder why that is?

Dealer Boots

Where would you be going without stylish footwear?

Dealer Rule: One must not wear wellies to the mart, it’s a case of wearing your dealer boots or go barefooted. (Not recommended!)

Pen & Cheque book

Back pockets in a pair of jeans are paramount for holding your cheque-book, cattle 'cards' and a pen!

Livestock Dealers are not too fussy when it comes to pens, just as long as they do not have red ink!
