 oxfordshire  here
 i have a mixture of sheep aberdales ( Texle  cross )  crossed back over  with a tex or suflock  going to cross this time with  Oxford downs

 cuts  i keep it simple  different with my pigs
 basically  everything off half a lamb  butcherd down  i do some chops  leg and shoulder  and everything else  ill split the liver and through in the kidney  if they want the hart  then  in it goes
 i would like to get 50- 60  a half however maket  prices  dont help at the moment  i have got 80 a half in the past

I've just bought a half lamb box here in Jersey. I can't help with butchering costs but I can tell you what they offered for the money :)

I had 2 options. Both are texel or texel cross sheep and are grass fed (I do not know if any extra feed was used)

A) 9.50/kg
2 x Half legs of lamb
1x Whole shoulder on the bone
1 x Rack (french trim)
Chump chops
Loin chops

B) 90 (approx. 8-10kg).
1x whole shoulder,
2x 1/2 legs,
loin chops,
double cutlets,
leg steaks or diced lamb,
1x shoulder fillet,
boned and rolled breast,
neck for stewing and
bones to make stock
This one also specified that its 10 day dry aged lamb

Neither offer the offal with it but I presume you could ask for it if you wanted it?
