    Is that an extra animal in the price checker

    I always told the Eriskay pony breeders that the way to save a rare breed is to eat it!

    Can this thread please be made a sticky.

    No prices but i hear lambs are firming up. And cast cattle have climbed due to the horse fiasco. The ground is slowly drying out too - so all in, this could be the start of better things to come

    Insanity is doing the same thing, over and over again, but expecting different results.

    You could add alpacas to the title too
    Several abattoirs now take them, but rarely do you see the meat advertised. I must admit I gave my co-editor apoplexy yesterday, when I suggested DNA tests for alpaca meat in burgers as well as neds.

    Heavy hogs Hallworthy today, we made 81.50.
    They should have been away a month ago, but prices so low, we hung on. It was worth it. No hard feed, just grass.,

    Now if only we could access the old BFF threads, I could pull up a prediction that lambs would take off in March. I reckon I might start buying lottery tickets.

    Shame I didn't have the forage to hold all mine back until now though.

    Out interest I checked our books NeilO, and the peak prices for hogs (in N.Cornwall) was during the first week of April. After that, they dropped 10 / head. We shifted almost 100 that week

    Shrewsbury today I got for hoggs, 98.00 / 52kgs & 95.50 / 47kgs. Don't know how that compares to others cause I had to leave to go to dentist. Got some more in a fortnight, hope prices keep rising!

    Falling may be helping prices?

    A huge day for numbers of prime hoggs at Longtown yesterday-and the prices weren't too shabby either. Looks like it paid off for people to risk keeping them on a bit.

    Got 50 cull ewes to take to market, but when are prices normally best for them? Is there a specific time of year? Don't like selling cheap!
