40 on a pallet but how bigs the pallet they need it exact on here
If it weren’t dark I’d nip out and photograph differing pallet sizes too add too the discussion! 😂😂

Calves today just seemed too get dearer and dearer, by the 300’s if it was a blue and not a dyer it was starting £280-300 and rocking on!

Great to see confidence in the job. That feel good factor of a good trade for cattle and sheep has been missing for too long.

We’ve not quite used 10 ton yet and 360 weaned since November so we’re just over 25kg a calf
How do you know when to wean them. I have a few here with 2 bags in them but got them at 1 week old. They are eating over 1kg of ration and out on grass during the day. Was nit intending buying any more milk so would they be ready?

Outfits from Hereford. Look a treat now they've filled up and settled.
