Cheviot Mule vs NofE Mule

I don’t pay rent or get bps on the land. But they cost £15 labour, £6 vet and med, £1 mortality, £5 feed (hay and minerals) and £3 for topping the ground. So cost £30 to keep, there is usually £40/£45 between selling yearlings and buy back the ewe lambs. So not massive profits but a good way to farm poor land and turn stock over.
Thankyou. You are very lucky with your rental position
