This is a worry situation.

The drastic drop in sheep and pig prices isn't going to help the situation.

Good grief - I'm old. We had landrace on farm when I was a kid/teenager and they sold on the profit side of the dividing line.

We had pedigree Landrace when we moved here in 1988 Christine. They weren't rare then. It just shows how fashion and trends change in farming.
