Riverview Trading is a livestock marketing company which started in the heart of Alexandria in the Eastern Cape. The company started Livestock Marketing in 2007 and the cornerstone of our business is and has been the loyal farming community of the area. Due to the demand from our farming community Riverview Trading started holding Livestock Auctions in 2008 and this has grown from strength to strength. In 2012 we held our first Auction in the East London area, which we continue holding regularly.
I, Tony Burger (Sole Director), have been involved with livestock management and trading all my life. I have also had the privilege of growing up on a farm in a small farming community in the Stutterheim area. I started in the livestock marketing industry after leaving school in 2001 and I have always been passionate about livestock marketing and livestock breeding and husbandry.
Riverview Trading is physically based 6.5 kilometres from Alexandria, on the R72 towards Port Alfred, where we have a ninety two hectare livestock depot, consisting of modern stock handling facilities and numerous camps.
The foundation of the Riverview Trading Livestock Marketing Company is the loyal clients, both buyers and sellers. This remains the success to our business; allowing us to expand into new areas. We have always strived to offer a professional and honest service and are committed to fairness and honesty in every transaction.
Riverview Trading has been involved in the marketing of beef breeding of stock, weaners and slaughter stock. We are also involved in the selection of replacement animals in beef herds, replacement bulls, etc. We are also actively involved in the dairy industry in dairy heifer marketing and the selection of replacement dairy heifers.
We are successfully involved with the export of large stock and small stock from South Africa to other countries.
Riverview Trading’s goal is to bring new dimensions to livestock marketing; by improving the traditional way of doing livestock marketing, by keeping up with international trends. Riverview Trading believes in the future of livestock marketing, with a faith born not of words, but of deeds. We aim to empower farmers by lifting the quality of service in livestock marketing to new heights.
