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

Written by Charlotte Cunningham

AHDB has issued a yellow rust watch list to help flag winter wheat varieties most likely to perform out of line with the disease ratings published in the Recommended Lists. Charlotte Cunningham reports. The watch list, which orders varieties based on yellow rust levels from the three worst RL trials (for each variety), can help identify those most likely to benefit from closer monitoring, says the levy board. It follows the development of a new rating calculation approach that better reflects the diverse and dynamic nature of the UK’s rust populations, announced at the launch of the online edition of the RL 2021/22 in Dec.
