It's a very small one (takes only 8 animals at a time) near Newport, Shropshire.  I did ask about time but was told between 5.30 and 7am.  Thanks for the thought, DW

Gosh that seems early, I took my billlies in about 9.30am, still before the vet/inspection.
Could you ask if you could drop him in later?

Worth a try.  Maybe if I explain I am disabled, they'll be a bit more flexible.  If not I will have to pay someone to take him and that will increase the cost.  He's certainly not been a way of saving money.  Already spent a fortune feeding him.

Well very disappointing on weight ranging from 11kg, 13kg and 15kg but didn't think continuing feeding would up the weight much.  Doubt they will cover the overall cost by the time I sell some but it is an experience and hopefully tasty.

My local butcher is going to make some sausages for me tomorrow if I can decide on flavouring.  What weights do others send off at? These boys were at least 8 months old but I bought them in at 5 months as an experiment.

What price do people sell at for joints and diced meat?
