    Havent heard that‍♂️, maybe its local price back 10c, as you were well ahead of the market. Those crowd bought hard and overpriced in the marts around here over the last week so they are just balancing the book. Have a good few cattle to roll this week, wasnt any mention of a lower price.

    Maybe in parts of the country, booking a week in advance around here and full kills each day. From watching the department price tables, they dont seem to be paying either:sad:

    Are they terrible bad buyers or wankers to deal with if the locals dont deal with them. They probably have 2 artics of overpriced cattle bought in marts down here over last few days for Tuesdays kill. Surely over the last week they should be able to muster up another 150 cattle for Tuesdays kill from lads just phoning up to sell cattle over the last week.

    I have dealt with others and I wasn't happy.
    In fairness, they don't have a big area. They have a fairly big factory not too far from them.

    Grass growth is fantastic of late and lads aren't under pressure to move on cattle. I'd say factories are finding supplies aren't where they would usually expect them to be as a result if grass growth.

    Screenshot_20200731-113801_Chrome.jpg the Cow in picture is the next lot . Price and details are for a big yellow charlaoiis cow. Top quality and very fat. What would she need to make per kg to come into that in factory.

    Throw another €60 of costs on her, 3.90 would get her out of trouble. Assume a factory bought her
