I got a trailer load of tex X theaves at £150/hd, probably £25 up on last year.
Beltex x Charolais theaves were £80+ dearer than last year.
The new arrivals don't seem to know what a dog is yet;
Tends/tended to be in the more fluidly traded counties of Cambridgeshire, and more so in Lincolnshire. They have a lot of land that isn't 'old estates', (if that makes sense), and inbig enough blocks to make it worthwhile buying, a few hundred acres here and there aren't worth bothering with.
Everyone expects them to have problems, when they have a good harvest it is a problem as it means most will get exported, as domestic demand relatively small. That's the reasons behind the above statement.
