Beef / Lamb & Pig Price Tracker

Wouldn’t say they were real lean, got plenty more running on and usually put some better sorts on the roots with Hoggs. Just like to have a tickle now so they don’t make as much mess at home. Maybe should hold them back. What will trade be like in new year. Don’t really want to hold them until festival time of year again.
That’s the trouble. If you keep them it may end up being best time to cash them at festival. I think there’s too many lean ewes about at the moment it’s just that time of year. Mine were proper knack ewes couldn’t put flesh on with grass so better gone.

Disappointing beef trade again, average down another 6p to £1.99 compared to £2.05 last week and £2.15 the week before, which matches what I have been getting.
Had a shapely little bullock that on prices 2 weeks ago I hoped would make £2.30, took him today and he only made £2.17

They are now all bought up for the Xmas trade.

And of course now the pub/ Resturant trade is all but gone with the rules in the new tiers and of course now they are banned from selling booze in Wales from Friday will be the final nail in the coffin for most of them and that trade for meat, esp given Dec is one of the most important months of the year in this sectors year!

My thoughts were that we were all going to be released on Dec 2nd and we would be eating out etc. In reality we went into lockdown in tier 2 and come out of it into tier 3. Wtf is that all about then?

All this lockdown sh!t isn't helping is it! Think I'm right in saying during the first lockdown they couldn't shift enough steaks, maybe it's the same now!
Got 6 left to go now, but it's Xmas sale next week and that's always a bit of a dodgy day to sell on

Open Letter: Response to Eat Balanced Campaign on Social Media

Letter to the Editor

January 2021

Have you seen the exciting new AHDB ‘We Eat Balanced’ £1.5 million marketing campaign launched on January 4? Anyone watching social media over the past two weeks won’t be surprised its stimulated debate with huge support, outrage, passion and enthusiasm all stirred up.

We want to inject balance into the debate about red meat and dairy – to start having a different national conversation and put farming’s voice out there. The campaign is being run across TV, print and in retail as well as social media, so millions of consumers will have the opportunity to see it. We know 98 per cent of households enjoy meat and dairy but some are looking to reduce, and this is who our campaign speaks to.

Farmers and consumers alike have congratulated us for airing...
