Can't see how China could turn away lamb because it has a virus.surely its ok to send stuff in but not out? what they going to eat? half there pigs are gone.if they didn't eat so many rats,mice bats an other things which have all been on Facebook recently maybe these virus's wouldn't appear in the first place .

It's because everything is shut down, they desperately want them but ports /factories shut, people fighting over food.

Maybe there’s lessons that need pointing out to our government here because when ports open again the Chinese have a lot bigger buying power then us !!!

Are you making much money if you are paying £1000 store for £1300 in the fat?
On from that generally are cattle getting into profit yet? People must be getting stuck into September bought stronger stores now, when the price fell back, but did they come back enough? The end price has lifted a touch which should help, I always feel you should buy stores according to the price you are taking at the time, not what you hope they might be so that should be a bonus

Note: Not getting very rich myself doing what I’m doing, just asking for comparison not to be clever
