    Fed up saying the same thing here for years. In a few weeks, we will test and in less than a month, most of that bunch will have been slaughtered.

    All of the above on buying in is correct, I had a look through some of the old correspondence here on it.

    Somerset all the time now ... As I'm a civvie
    Not sure if it's the same over there,
    But here in England "you" be a red holding, chap not too far away from here finishes cattle, he would have 1200-1400 cattle about his place , he it TB registered , to the end that he can buy cattle from "any where"
    So we can sell him beef cattle that have no pre movement testing, he can buy from a RED TB market, , obviously any thing he buys from a normal market is or has been pre movement tested within 60 days,
    BUT he is only allowed to sell direct to slaughter house, (which he does any way" ) , I reckon he's sending 100-125 or so cattle to house every week,

    If i cleared out the yard fully i was told i would be clear in 30 days

    Coz im sending some ir's fat i have to wait 60 days from them going till next test

    I cant buy in until the results of the next test are know

    I cant rent a shed on a different holding to buy a few to keep turnover going
