    Electric car charging stations.

    Nothing against Gleneagles, I was brought up a couple of miles down the road. But surely there is a hotel in Glasgow that they could have used and saved wasting time sitting on the A9? Or is it a security issue?

    Beef / Lamb & Pig Price Tracker

    Yes, I agree. The big market is still for a 20kg approx lamb. He runs a fairly high end butcher's shop, so a fairly niche market. Interesting take on it though. I think Australian lambs tend to be about that size?

    A butcher friend of mine reckons that we should be breeding bigger too. His reason is that he would like a loin big enough to bone out and roll, rather than sell chops. People aren't so keen on bone nowadays.

    Glad to see the Border Reivers tradition alive and well! Trouble is, I think @Hilly has equine locomotion as well and if the next again night all he is served for his tea is a pair of spurs, I believe that is the cue for him to ride, boldly ride and bring them back plus interest!

    Fertiliser crisis and suckled calf sales

    You can call me daft if you like but I don't see the point of lashing on fertilizer in the spring when you get a flush anyway. Just means more grass to keep on top of at peak season. Unless you are short of silage ground?

    I thought Scots Gap was his collection centre??

    I've never been TBH but they certainly get less stock than St Boswells and there's maybe five buyers there. But yes, they will buy elsewhere too.

    I'm not sure that I would rely on the returns from Wooler to forecast a national trend?

    That looks like it. I'll try the bloke and see what he says.

    Ram costs

    I can see the argument for an economy buy if you're faffing about with a few ewes but it still needs to leave half decent lambs! Anyone taking the job seriously needs to think long and hard about where they spend their tup budget, particularly if they breed their own replacements.
