butcher pays everything i just drop at slaughter house
Those that sell live would give you a better idea but I would have thought 160/kg live.
Forever fendt , fair price then, depending on which slaughterhouse he uses there could be delivering costs too. Small heifer sides of beef are trading at £3.50 around here today
Bakewell was full of lambs they didn't look much of a trade most pens I saw were making mid low 160s and they looked decent lambs. Looked a fair lot of ewe's in
They will kill out at around 50% thats what mine do at Dunbia @Forever Fendt
Could you test them and sell them as store's. Bakewell was on fire there were some yearling rat like Hereford heifer's at 430.
Not a bad price. Put them against a grid, O+4h possibly, underweight maybe and see what price they end up at without the fact non fa. If the butcher kills them himself no trim, weighed tail on they will die 4/5% better on a 250/60 kg body and not the off takes.
just weighed the smallest ,surprised me 434kg so about £700 ?
At that sort of weight or slightly above I think he's been pretty fair with you. Depending on how much belly on it with no trim probably around 52% so 225kg body so you might end up with a bit more shouldn't end up less. Surprised how, heavier or lighter than expected?
I have some Angus heifers similar age, weight and fat. I plan to tip them out in the spring and kill them off the grass when they are heavy enough to get the premium.
Lamb prices today
SQQ down 6.4/5 a kilo..
Sedge SQQ : 1.62
Exeter SQQ 159.7
Puts a 40 kilo lamb around £64/ head....
Cattle are sedge thou were UP again on last weeks strong trade.
What was the average on finished cattle?
Lambs today 3:80 at farmers fresh
better to be fair
Have heard farmers fresh have altered their grid for the better. Pay to 22 and take mules now. Is this all true anyone know?
From memory I think steers were £1.86 and heifers £1.89.
Not a bad sign if they're up just into the new year
Sounds like the trend of dead better than live continues?
To be honest lambs are doing v badly, if you take the value of sterling into account? Surely we should be seeing some real improvements.
I don't think it bodes well going forward
