Discussing Sheep Tagging at Leyburn Auction Mart

Another session at a Farmers Auction Mart, this time in Leyburn. In spite of it being store cattle day, the topic farmers most wanted to speak to me about was the electronic identification (EID) of sheep (tagging).

Speaking with Farmers at Northallerton Auction Mart

A great morning at the Auction Mart. I got to test out my knowledge of liveweight and deadweight, fat stock, store stock and cull cows, and was even given a quick test on identifying different breeds!
