i am worried now ๐Ÿ˜

just out of interest/theory......for you and 'lord lower the tone' (robbie)๐Ÿ˜

i'm twice the distance that you are from beet factory....not such good road either...i'm quoted ยฃ960 for 29t load fodder beet delivered

how does that compare to an adjusted load of beet you get delivered to factory? factoring delivery allowance which i supposed you'd need to double?

Sounds reasonable really? I pay ~ยฃ150 for a twenty mile trip so its ยฃ800 for the beet which is ~ยฃ27.5 for the beet. Obviously lots more than we are paid but reasonable compared to barley etc? Especially as your haulage could be nearer ยฃ250 cos you need to add cleaner loading ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ

Bloody lord lower the tone!!!!!๐Ÿ˜ฏ I was being good and behaving myself as it was the Sabbath!!!!!!!!

When I looked the other day my beet were coming to between 575 and 600 quid a load(for the half decent ones the factory's didn't f##k me over on)๐Ÿ™„ haulage allowance is, I think 140 quid on top for s 26 mile haul. I think my man charges me ยฃ4.25 ton haulage.
