Looks like weaning cattle have been dear in Australia 1000c per kilo equivalent of £5 per kilo for 300/400 kilo beast that’s a lot
The increase in commodities is worldwide, we and especially the consumer of our products will have to get used to paying more for their food. This country is run on the likes of Costa coffee and other eateries and folk think nothing when handing over their hard earned cash to these places, but try and get them to spend their money on fresh food it’s like banging your head off the wall

Would you take £30/hd less for your lambs if fuel halved and your fert bill dropped to £200/t ?
we have been doing that for last 40 years (CAP) all its done is insulate the GP against inflation , would have been better for tesco to allow us a few % a year increase , would have been less painful being hit with a full cop rise down the line , like canute you can only hold the tide back so long ,

If they think lamb is too dear maybe they should cut their costs, that’s what they’ve been telling us for years
