Margin on Store Blk

    Last Nov I bought WH Blks (bucket reared) circa 400kgs = €900 and when I sold them I got roughly 1400/1450 with no meal

    I also bought 10 bucket reared wh blks off a dealer for 600 and I was very impressed with the margin, lowest I got was 1100 in the factory (probably lacked a bit of flesh as they got no meal at finishing), while I got 1250 and 1160 for others in the mart (they weighed circa 480 to 550 kgs). They got 1 kg of meal per day each over the winter plus silage.

    Seems more money in the bucket reared WH based on my experience

    Anyone ever buy 300 kgs weanlings of good quality and squeeze, what type of a margin on them?
