Trevor Strickland on Slaughterhouse
That was the Fatstock Marketing Company which was the slaughterhouse up at Heytesbury, just outside of Newport ,and that’s where all our lambs used to go.
Occasionally we’d send some to Market but at that particular time we seemed to be getting a very good deal with the arrangement that they had there same as the calves.
We used to take the calves there but then on the other hand sometimes they’d go to Newport Market.
Pigs, well both places again although we never had that many pigs, we used to concentrate on the dairy for the milk round and the sheep, together with the vegetables.
