    York had an Irish market on a Saturday and he would of shipped the majority of them across. He could certainly buy a lot of cattle. The fields around his farm were constantly full of beast and they would change every week. His wagons ran 24hrs a day.

    I once killed a beast for someone and he hung it in the barn. Only problem was rats came along the beam and chewed all the shins and chewed lumps out of the tops.
