Fair play good average. Straight off calves too?
yes March/April born calves, rightly or wrongly I just sudden death weaned the calves, they have been eating a good bit of creep for 7 weeks now so should be okay. I just need the cows out of the way before too many more come on the market also we are short of Silage and grazing at the minute so don't want any passengers to house.

Lanark fat lambs back to 220 ppkg. Down 12/13p iirc. Report saying too many under finished light lambs coming in. Fleshy heavy lambs still making good money.
seems strange dumping them in the fat market when stores are serious money🙄

Is that really a problem? Your well finished lambs will make just the same, the lean ones just make the average (& market report) look worse. It's no bearing on anything other than the condition of the lambs presented.

If those 'under finished' lambs had been sent deadweight, the same buyers would likely have been lapping them up.

Pulls the SQQ down which then pulls the deadweight price down which then pulls the SQQ down the following week and so it goes on!

All markets should grade lambs come 1 Aug every year for the prime sales and any not covered well enough should be pulled out and sold as store lambs after the prime lamb sale at double the comm rates for store lambs sold in the normal weekly store market.

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
