“To discuss the possibility of the farmers cooperative investing in the market”....I received the same message, it doesn’t surprise me. My neighbour had to wait 3 weeks to be paid after selling there. Looks like they have a few cash flow issues ?

Is the problem late payers or big pay outs when folk have left in a hurry.

@Hfd Cattle posted about Newark on the price tracker thread the other day!

Sounds like either farmers step in and save the market with a large cash injection or its done for sadly!

By what I understand they are asking farmers to invest £3000 each in shares to keep market afloat . Someone from Skipton Market is overseeing the process.

Mr Gentry going suddenly, and also a good man in James Sealey, and the challenge of selling sheep when one man is buying a large proportion of them, just might have unsettled their confidence in the job?
Hence gauging the likely level of support in future.
