Forget the prices, just hold enough stock to make the schemes!

    Seems to me that the best solution for small farming is to forget the livestock prices.

    Purchase enough cattle and a few sheep to just make the minimum requirement for the schemes.

    No stores, no silage, no sheds, no feed, no fertilizer.

    For a 50 acre farm, 10 weanlings and 10 weathers, buy in March and sell on October, if you get a profit from the sales then great if not then so what.

    Buy 10 weanling Fresians bullocks cheap and sell them to factory cheap.

    What's wrong with the above?
