Going on those figures they would be around 430 kgs live. Assuming they are R/U grade, that seems in line with elsewhere?
Yes they probably are, I don’t buy stores so those figures are second hand but it’s a lot of money to look at some cattle but if your on the wheel it has to be done I suppose!!

The men buying week in , week out would have made a tidy sum on the stores they bought before fat trade lifted so its swings and roundabouts. The people who lose the most are those that stop and start at the finishing job and are always chasing the trade.

Fresh off field or empty weight?
Weighed some killing ewe lambs yesterday in the field, 8 sub 45, a lot mid 50’s and some hitting high 50’s. 1 chartex which is being kept was 68kg
No these last 2 bunches are out of a shed and on the market scales in less than an hour. The £124 ones were out of a field with empty bellies I gathered them a bit too early in the morning and they didn't get a chance to fill up because it hadn't gone light very long. Find you usually lose a couple of kilos doing that so try not to do it.
 
Those ewe hoggs aren’t really even make fat prices the in lamb ones. I’d be a bit annoyed at that given the work involved getting them there.
Except the texels.
Could be depends what they were like. The store sale tags on the back of the breeding sheep in the same ring so all the store buyers would be there and wouldn’t be shy of buying any to kill
 

Early moves to target wild oats

Growers and agronomists now face the dilemma of an early application to remove competition from emerged wild oats, or holding off to allow more weeds to germinate.

Syngenta grassweeds technical manager, Georgina Wood, urges Axial Pro treatment as soon as conditions allow, once weeds are actively growing.

“That offers the chance to control wild oats more cost effectively at lower rates, whilst there is still the flexibility to tailor application rates up to 0.82 l/ha for larger or over wintered weeds and difficult situations.

“The variability of crops and situations this season means decisions for appropriate Axial Pro rates and application techniques will need to be made on a field-by-field basis,” she advised.
