4 TALKING POINT

tim scrivener
Peter Morris
NSA chief
executive

 There has never been greater


awareness among sheep farmers
about what happens to their
lambs beyond the farm gate than
there is now. That said I would be
deluding myself if I thought sheep
farmers knew all they needed to
about the destiny of their animals
in terms of how the supply chain
works, which markets matter and
how markets are developed and
maintained.
It is fascinating to me that so
many sheep farmers now know
the daily fluctuations of sterling
against the euro almost as well
as they know the number of
sheep they have in each field.
Watching the currency market
has become something of a
preoccupation – and rightly
so. However, as the economic
difficulties spread throughout the
EU there is almost the same level
of uncertainty about the future
of the euro as there has been
about sterling and as a result there
has been a slight but significant
strengthening of sterling against
the currency upon which so much
of farming fortunes ride.
The weakness of sterling has
introduced real competition into
the marketplace for lamb which
has been the main contributing
factor in better prices for sheep
farmers. However, things will
change and through currency
changes and seasonal trends
the amount of export driven
buoyancy will alter and the UK
retailers will probably be able
to reassert themselves as the
strongest players in town.

sheep & cattle drenches
THEY’RE 100% CONTENTS GUARANTEED

All farmers recognise that in certain areas of the country, or at particular


times of the year, livestock require a vitamin mineral supplement.
When it comes to liquid drenches the choice is enormous and often
confusing with each manufacturer claiming theirs is the best.
However, BEWARE, as what it says on the label may not always be in
the bottle.
At Farmsense we manufacture all our drenches in our own state of the
art factory so you can be completely assured that you always get what
you pay for!
So for your own peace of mind, as well as that of your customers, make
sure you stock “The Orange Bottles” in your store.

Electronic identification can

The ‘power of data’

Aly Balsom reports
 Compulsory sheep EID may

The results are suffering for sheep, reduced growth rates and a cost to the industry of £24million
