I'm only repeating what the lads in the loading bay said. Anyway they said that if I wanted to It could be arranged for me to follow my lambs all the way through the abbatoir in future to see what happens. I think I'll take them up on that offer next time.

I'm paying £10 slaughter charge and £27 butchering for our shetlands. Thinking to sell the meat for about £3 per lb.  Does that sound reasonable or should I be charging more/less?

Hi,

How do i find a 'decent' slaughterer - did enquire at local butcher for jointing the carcass once I found an abbatoir, could have been the wrong guy to ask -as he was very short with me and said " if they did that they would lose business to me"!!

I usually buy my meats etc from them espeically as they do the most wonderful home baked meat pies. :yum:

I shan't have any lambs ready for a couple months, but thought I should start looking. (We have only just got back into having some land and animals since moving over here (12yrs ago) and don't know where things are as far as abbatoirs are concerned)

If anyone on the forum knows of somewhere in Carmarthen or Pembrokeshire I should be grateful.  Not thinking of selling any - just for us and family. AND the cost...
