It’s the fact you can shift virtually half your lamb crop in early September leaving grass for feeding the wethers. Otherwise you would need to sell everything store which is a gamble most years
Carlisle run both on mondays.There are no "fat" ones in the stores there,because they would be bought and then just run straight around in t other ring for the fat.
i can think of 3 guys of the top of my head that buy in the store ring that will buy fat lambs and they won’t be ran round to the fat ring. One buys for skelly, ones a dealer that mostly trades in poor stores and one’s so good he can’t buy under his own name 🤔😂

Can only think of Paul Bouch who buys stores for himself,and England,who i dont think i have seen him buy good quality lambs lately,just the poorer ones.Who is the last one?

Hi, I'm sorry if this is the wrong place to ask.
My dad has accidentally let some of his animals go past 36 months (he has parkinons and is trying to retire, but wanting to get the best price and organise the logistics of downsizing is proving too much, so he's getting behind with things) and is struggling to know where to send them to get the best prices. He's based near Leeds - does anyone have any advice or know any abattoirs who would take otm animals? (they are mainly south devons).

They are now cow price if direct. If they are fit, I think I’d be looking to sell them live. Not sure where though.

You probably need someone who can look at them in the flesh like a farming neighbour or livestock market fieldsman to give you the best advice . If they are fit to kill and not incalf then an abbattoir or red market is your best bet. Tb testing to sell on as stores etc risks having a reactor and spoiling your plans of downsizing though .
