Right ..... so apart from trying to be a condescending wa***r about it, what are you actually trying to say? Because you can’t do something, when others achieve it, they are fools ? I work f***ing hard and somewhat resent being called silly by someone who is incapable of properly electric fencing a field ......
Do you want to rephrase that without the rude words or will i just press ignore?

Aye ok. Other than just to be patronising for the sake of it, what point are you trying to make? You’re talking down to me, and apparently it’s because I manage to do something you think isn’t do able or is silly? Don’t take this the wrong way but I just find people like that extremely grating. I’ve spend most of my farming life being talked down to by ‘proper farmers’ and it’s infuriating, especially when I’ve manage to achieve something a lot of them haven’t.

With regard to the rude words and ignoring me. You don’t like being spoken to like that I take it? And yet you think it’s totally acceptable to talk down to someone else?

Let’s all play nice now. Frankly I’d love all stick fenced ground, but if I want to farm and make money I hVe to take what I can get.

Sounds to me like you are most defo a proper farmer, take it from me peopel who talk down and belittle others have the issues it’s their own insecurity it makes them feel better they are feked in the head, keep up the good work .

yes i see now,
hes right about getting more on alorry, no waste just the bits thats eaten, ie thousand lamb on one 40ft fridge , wont do that on one artic float.
course its live they want for certain other reasons.
Wife had a tour around SODEM , second biggest lamb plant in France. They buy uk lambs live, sometimes as stores which they run on and fatten/ kill as needed. All uk lamb is sold as such at around 20 Euros a head less than French lamb.
Stopping live export is bound to affect your price?

Will it affect UK store prices more ?ie less buyers over here.
What's the difference in sending over a whole lamb
carcass or Sodem doing the slaughtering ?
Sodem slaughter costs cant be much different to the UK plants.

Throughput!
It keeps the plant running full chat. We are friends with a board member who has a lot of their own sheep, it's a double edged sword, keeps the plant full on but importing keeps the French price down. They had 9 Euros 20 a kilo dw for Christmas lambs.👍
