That’s a ‘Northern’ thing though, and one of the reasons I fell under Mrs NeilO’s spell.🥰 It was a job to find a northern lass that had moved to the Cotswolds.

I’ve always found that, the closer you get to the South East, the more false people become. What’s wrong with calling a spade a spade? :scratchhead:
It took me quite a few years to readjust to the South after spending 5 years living in Glasgow.

Albania is the only country in Europe that eats more beef than chicken or pork

Didn't see a lot of them to be fair. A few regular sellers of decent quality stuff when I was watching.
The market report said everything was on fire,and a fantastic trade,but i watched a few weaners on line,and i thought ordinary dairy bred quality were nothing special.Still a long way short of last March-June. Strong stores in Ring 2 at £1800 would be straight to kill,would they not?
 
Alot of those feeder have done alright out of lmbs bought early at 70/80£, a guy from the east of Scotland had 1200 in the ua 400 over 3 weeks and hit those good weeks and would average around 140£, and he didn't pay over 85 for any. So he won't be complaining. May those paying 100+ for stores won't get so much, but who knows nice 44kg lmbs are still good money.

I’m sure they will have done well on the first half of the £70 lambs, the next 25% might be ok but the last 25% need a decent price increase to pay for the extra keep and losses from now on.

I was talking to a dealer friend a month ago he bought lambs early on £60/£80 in August/September put them on dairy farms then weighed them in October/November and they had mainly been in around the £140 mark
Those lambs have mostly gone now and he and many others have got money to spend for the next lot. That’s what is making stores so dear I think.
Anything bought now looks chancy but so did some of the £80 plus lambs earlier on
£100 for something similar now is no more money in many ways
