    Beef / Lamb & Pig Price Tracker

    With commission at over 4% and also charged for clipping it looks very expensive, firmly believe that we should resist clipping charges, the place to clip them is on the line, the cleanest and cheapest way for all concerned

    Straw choppers, Kverneland 832 and Teagle 808

    Can drive past the front of sheds but thinking mounted option might be a bit more flexible and could stay on a tractor. Not sure on capacities but understand Teagle is straw and will do silage but think KV may be straw only

Buyers travelling long distances to buy At Drayton as they are getting over 600 calves from an increasingly wide area. The good thing about Leek calves is that they tend to be better bred, from...
