    He is certainly a character and very likeable as has been said many times,been about all my farming life..never seems to age...must be in his early 70s i would think...someone may correct me...if you buy from him..put them on some hay for the 1st few days...until they settle down....got a lot...

    Lets sincerely hope that these 30kg store lambs @ 95 quid turn a nice profit we will all be smiling then come springtime even if the pellets are £300 quid a ton,i do worry that there will be too may heavy hogs around as they up to now are having a very kind winter

    Its all about the futures market...no grain changes hands...they buy today at X £s a ton and hopefully sell tomorrow at a higher price....when it drops they all start closing their positions and it goes down even more...
