Every other industry earns lots money I was at the football the other day and couple lads I know got a van and paint and decorate in London only inside the m25 bare in mind they live in south London they take home a week £2400 a week between then start at 8am till 4pm and Friday they start 7am finish 3pm then to the pub no weekends there only cost is bit finance on the van insurance road tax and £60 diesel a week now unless im wrong but I’m pretty sure feeding the country is worth more to thr nation than painting some house ?! Time farming earns proper money for the effort and hours put in ! Whether ur breeding cattle milking cattle feeding cattle sheep etc it’s time and due people get a proper living with the costs and bills hitting everyone rant over
This sort of thing goes on all the time everywhere , as you say its about time farming and in particular livestock started making
Some serious money , margins last lord knows how many decades are a joke.

Had my eye on two Simm steers,nice and quiet,thought might do a job about £800,but they were well in the £900s. There were two good pure Lim heifers from Bonshawside made £1420 and £1400.Dunkley bought them so probably went somewhere to bull. Ms Ivison had a really good trade with some Charly steers turned £1100 at a year old. And @Stw88 £930 for 3 heifers.
Them heifers were very well sold, have gone to be cows. One was meant to be there 3 weeks ago but had a mix up when sorting them. It’s mate was £770, glad it got left at home now! First week was a very poor trade and today was a very good trade. Average is about right. Was wishing I maby hadn’t turned out a few that i have after today but time will tell. Think numbers will dry up shortly.

Self employed tradesmen biggest problem must be the taxman from what I’ve seen!

Your sim bullocks that you mention were £905-930 hardly well into the 900's. I spoke to the lady that sold them and she told me that she sold their mates at home and got more for them
What did you think of the trade today then? And why dont you put some prices up?

Have you given any luck to that lad who bought your bullock earlier in the year yet, he has been back in the mart for the last three weeks? He was moaning to me that he is getting pee'd off paying good money and not getting a penny
I dont know who he is,so why doesnt he come and ask me?

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.

Discussion with Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) officers confirmed the site...
