Harvesting grain crops/ sorting out ewes/selecting fat lambs/beef animals for sale. Has been a very busy “back end” as it is known. Have sold all the grain for good prices but there were big drying costs due to it coming off the combine quite damp, we expected nothing else after such an appalling summer. Not a partiularly impressive yield. It has sold as cattle feed to BOCM in Penrith. Very low on straw, not a good year, so we have had to buy in some but at least we don’t have to buy any silage.
