A friend of mine who is a bit of a hobby farmer sent some fat lambs today to a market, he sold them as farm assured, but it turns out his fa ran out. He told me the market rang him to say he would be docked "£1 a head" did he hear them right or will it be £1 a kilo?

Cattle are £1 kilo so I expect sheep are the same
