I sent one last week, thought she would get hammered deadweight as she was a bit fat, so decided to sell live weight, only got £1.20 ppk but the fact she weighed 1006kgs made up for it.

What's everyone else getting? Sent one to pickstock via our local collection guy came back at 150p/kg dead.

She was Irish but even so seems a bit low to me!
What grade, P something I take it. We send them occasionally to Pickstocks. 2.50 a kg for O-@300kgs+ down here through local collection centre, P's would be between 150 -200

plain cows go to pickstocks, we find they pay very well for plain cows (and we all have them) but not so good on the very good cows, sent some to mkt last week, not overpleased with the results, theplain ones would have been much better at p/s, but we learn, the cost of haulage etc makes a difference, p/s fixed 20 quid.

Where else would you send the better ones dead? I usually send mine to pickstocks but will have a few better ones to to soon.
 
real good ones market, anything reasonable market if tested, have tried some tested through the store ring- mixed results, but to be honest, you have to take out haulage costs, we very often find ourselves moaning about the pp/k of the better ones, and going wow at the plain ones. boils down to time, hassle etc.
p/s take all cows except Romanian and Bulgarian, what they dock for foreign cows I don't know

Sold some to Picstocks 2 years ago. The Irish Cows were £150-200 less than their English equivalents. Foreign cattle cannot be sold as assured I was told. No idea if they dock the price now but all mine go to Foyles now with no difference between the two.
