That said, I am now beginning to enter prices into tables and some trends are beginning to emerge. It will be worth it in the end, I say to myself, rather desperately, as another 10 ewes and 4 wethers join the list. Then four score 'sheep', then some ewes with lambs -sufficient of those to suggest that it might be possible to work out how many lambs survive to become adults, though.
So, slowly, a picture will emerge. I hope. I very much hope.
