We've always used Mate mark cold crayons, (sometimes used nettex) they used to be spot on, but the quality of the mark seems to be getting worse and worse.
Straps fitted properly and the tups give them a good "rubbing"
Anyone found a better brand?

Used mate mark this year and I found all the suffolk tups made a hell of a mark... and the texel tups you had too squint too spot the marks...

Wynnstay tell me that they aren’t stocking Mating Mark crayons any more, but the Nettex ones have apparently Mating Mark harnesses (need to check on the box that they are ‘new type’ though). Unfortunately those Nettex ones are still their rock hard/don’t bother marking ‘all weather’ types though.:banghead:
If I had been happy with those I wouldn’t have changed to the ‘cold’ Mating Mark crayons & harnesses!

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
