    good dry pea haulm is good for dry cows or lambing ewes . Worth about £60 a tonne ex farm. Some sheep boys dont like it if the crop was desiccated before combining but I never found out why !

    The straw sold at £45 caused the high prices of late and the choppers to come in

    Make a loss of £15 a ton, or tell them to put the choppers on !.

    I haven’t bought much straw for less than £85 a tonne for years now
    If a farmer is selling it for £45 there’s £40 a tonne somewhere so wagon and drag x25 tonnes leaves £1000 somewhere
    Or x20 leaves £800
    No wonder there’s been shortages

    Dutch are paying £75 on the east coast I was quoted £40/ton to haul that to Wales today. Even at £30 ton rmto haul which is cheap it's still £105 . I haven't seen any straw at £45 yet
