hmmm suppose I could see what everyone else is getting

Would you not show the animals in the mart? majority of animals I have seen through the ring in the last 3 weeks have made more than going direct for slaughter. Its a funny old world

Just because you're not getting it doesn't mean it's not true.

How does 1.30 p/lb or 3.64 c/kg sound for R grade cull cows?

anyway we could keep this to actual verified prices offered/paid?
rather than the stories of the lad 3 parish's over that gets twice the money than everyone else

3.64 c/kg sounds like great money to me for a cull... especially considering young stock were hardly making that 12mths ago.

Maybe so, talk is cheap, remember - believe half of what you see and a quarter of what you hear.
