Decisions, Decisions….

All this snow is affecting our production. With the best will in the world feeding species rich hay is not enough to fatten sheep in snow conditions.

As a result we haven’t been able to take any to slaughter for a while now.

I could take them leaner – but that would impact quality of the meat (less fat is not good).

I could feed them concentrate feed to fatten them – but then they wouldn’t taste as good.

Looks like I’ll have to wait and do a bit more selling in the spring.

Who brought up this whole food integrity thing anyway?
