They like them lean! I sent some and the agent picked out ewes I would be a bit embarrassed about sending live. They graded well. One he said was too good but I misdrafted and let go, I would have said was still lean but they graded as a 4 and hammered me on price.

What weights would hill ewes kill out at roughly? They told us they pay 2.25. And they pay base up to 4L now but I'm now thinking some of the ewes booked in May be too fat by the sounds of it.
