no this post does not refer to the rumoured marrital habits of our cousins from over the ditch.
have you fellas priced out mutton/lamb in the shops later????
stone the crows digger the price is enough to bring tears to the eye!
I asked a farmer/work mate how much for an old sheep for the freezer nothing flash no lamb or even young stuff just a mutton... "well we have 2 left"he said"the wife made him keep them for HIS freezer the others he sold and got.....$178.00 EACH
THATS PLURRY REDICULAS
I can remember dad buying 500 old ewes most of which were im lamb for $0.50 each back in the late 80s
I would have paid $50-75 without too much problem but at that price its off the menu
Iwill have to go shoot a deer instead
