I think you’ll be right. Other thing is dry weather won’t help the store lamb trade on top of all the increased input costs. Forecast is still no rain for the next couple of weeks.
Well we're ready for it drying up a bit, it will let folk get on and get some crop gathered up, been a wet june, lets hope its going to take up, forecast is looking more promising!

Let’s get back to something other than the supposed “friction” between myself and @Mc115reed .
Scotch mule hoggs avg £162 in September with beltex singles (includes 2 champion pens which pulls the price up bit)
Cheviot mule hoggs avg £140 in September with Rouge singles.
Not sure which I prefer, think the Cheviot mules are in front on lamb quality but it’s a bloody close run thing!
All sheared now so not quite as smart for the next fortnight! 😂

Grandad still prefers his coloured mules for looking smart. But I reckon a good bunch of clean Cheviot mules by proper traditional BFL tups take some beating for looking at.
I’ll leave you alone now! They’re all smart but I reckon them chevvie hoggs are still sharp an pretty in the head at four crop where as a mule ewe is starting to look her age!! Personal preference I suppose, if we all liked the same life would be pretty dull

There’d be some fair punch ups in the pub that’s for sure!!
It’s true, I’ve sent broker chevi mules that you’d think were 6 toothers before now. The odd one goes all pot bellied Cheviot on me, but nowhere near as bad as I originally thought!

Would make a change from 100 000 verses of 10 green bottles to have someone to talk too! 😂😂

Feck it I’ll come, do you know “one wheel on my wagon”??
I’ll come :-
I know a song that’ll get on your nerves, get on your nerves, get on your nerves,
I know a song that will get on your nerves a song that’ll get on your nerves.
Repeat !!
