I sold 4 straws bout 5 years ago £450 each. Was very happy with that and I hope the farmer did well with what he had too as calves.

Iv a few Shatton Pedro left there can’t be many of them left these days!
I too have a couple of Shatton Pedros in there.
A couple of years ago was AI'ing a cow and the AI man never turned up until the next day as van broke down so offered me a free AI service but timings were so wrong . I didnt want to put anything good in so in went Shatton Pedro . Lo and behold a Shatton Pedro bull calf appeared. Unfortunately I was non to impressed with my calf, Lims have moved on a fair bit since then.

I recall seeing Pedro cows years ago, they were nice soft fleshed correct cows that seemed to have milk as they were making a good job of their calves, a lot of today's Lim cows seem to lack all 3 of these characteristics.
Today's Lim is probably a superior grading animal, but I wouldn't say the breed has moved on in every way.

Written by William Kellett from Agriland

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.

Discussion with Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) officers confirmed the site...
