    Martinmas sale, cally mart.

    Can’t believe the 2 markets couldn’t get their heads together. Having 2 sales of 8000+ lambs on the same day in the same town, might be ok for them but no fun for the buyers and even less fun for the hauliers. I’ve got lambs heading to vivers today, the haulier is screwed for driving time...

    I wouldn’t worry. Instead of sending in the numbers you have booked in, just send 50/60%, they’ll soon come knocking on your door again. The cattle aren’t there anywhere

    TexX ewes - which Tup to use?

    Some nice IAE yard gates sitting there. More work on? Just finished a shed upgrade here using them. Decent value for money I reckon

    Car leasing companies

    Absolutely, but the OP was asking for opinions on leasing, and I gave my experience. We have chosen to do something different which suits our business better

    Car leasing companies

    Looked at leasing several times over last 10 years for farm truck and wife’s car. Can never make the figures work before you get stung on the handback. Plenty farms round here do lease their trucks though and reckon it works for them. Depends on individual circumstances I reckon, I.e. whether...
