It doesn’t really matter. I was just relaying what I thought was useful information
What you had been told is very similar too what our local big beef finisher told me. “Never ring them with cattle, wait till they ring me begging for an artic or two. Then we start negotiating” he’s not a multi millionaire for nothing... he’ll think nothing too holding cattle back for a month then sending 100 in one hit when they bid right. Must be great too be in that position!
 
Good money changing hands for those big bf name, auldhouse, allunfauld, glenrath, nunnerie. But a lot at £150 as well. You need to be in that tup game for generations for those big prices. It's some atmosphere at those sale when a big money one comes to the ring, obviously not so much this year, but someone said lanark had one yesterday. Hopefully back to normal next year?.

Abp (southern counties) pay AA premium later I think,but they need to be under 360 kg
Abp Perth all paid within days .pay in full to 400kg . -5p for every 10kg up to 420.go over that an they are same price as clean.

Its sorted now, new girl in the office paid them on clean price with no premium.hope everyone else checked there kill sheet properly that week!

It would be a nice treat if the new girl paid all the clean on AA price,do you think they would get many calls😉

Boss sent some to pickstocks week before last on a Tuesday with couple of cull cows. Killed on Wednesday. After numerous email and texts, the kill sheets for Angus eventually come at tail end of last week and said to be killed with normal clean cattle and no bonus paid.

Rep said Angus only killed on Fridays. News to us, never been a problem before and he knew what was on the wagon.
Yeah I was told they only kill Angus on a friday.

One hell of a store lamb trade today!

Small lambs would be up anything from £5 to £10 head on last week, the rest up £2 on the week, most of the small long keep lambs ( ie : Some that wont make the distance type lambs around 10/15 kilos weight ) would be anything from £59/68 head, the worse it was bred the better it was sold!

Also one hell of a store cattle trade, well up on last week and very dear for this time of year.

Stirks again a very solid trade and well up on the week, suckler cattle especially well up and looking very well sold on the week, trade for these type of Cattle V Exeter yesterday would be anything from £50/ to £100 head dearer today than at Exeter yesterday, esp for the top end suckler bred cattle.
People must know something I don't about the lamb job..... Many in? Did you see any cull ewes sold?

Oh Dear...How do you guys get on with Aberdeens....Sent a load to Foyle today on the scheme most were to heavy and too fat...4 were 5s...only 22months old...think i will stick to my continentals....3 over 400...as well....they are going to get their big stick out to beat me up
been there got the t shirt , i think you have to be a poor feeder or cleverer than me to do angus for foyle!
 
Don’t let it worry you. I’m thinking the same...
Local haulier has had his deckers and wagons and drags leading sheep in to kill full time for months now. Drivers all out of time so he’s been putting one a week through their test to double shift the wagons plus between four and six artic deckers hired in full time every week.
He’s convinced there will be no sheep left by end of December and we will name the price so he thinks

I think Angus have to go on a wednesday with ABP Ellesmere

i dont like angus to me they are just risky 360 kg whats that all about? conti at 390kg r4l that will do me. conti at u+ is even better but dont they take some buying? go overweight and youve blown it, and they can catch you out.

I hope hes right. I really do. But the cynicism that 20 years of beef and sheep farming has ingrained into me keeps niggling away that it can’t last much longer...
