37 million over 5 years doesnt seem very much!
its not so much the volume its the weights they buy , will be a market for those outside the europ grid , so hopefully wont be penalised so much on over weights ,which will put pressure on europe export volume , i do wonder if thats where these heavies are being bought for now
a picture on fb of 83lbs lambs (edit its actually lbs 37kg )

Just had a text from Skipton.....
SKIPTON MONDAY
Heavy (&) Medium Cast Sheep needed for this Monday in large numbers please, trade has remained very strong and looking same for next week.
Prime Lamb trade also still very strong and likely to level at somewhere between the last two Mondays trade. Heavies, Smart Types, Handy (&) Lightweight, Lowland and Hill bred, all classes required both FA and Non FA. Large show needed.
Speak to Ted or Kyle over the weekend for more details. Thankyou.

Would those weights not be in pounds if it's in the USA? Cattle are weighed in pounds. 83lb would be 37.6kg
