The 55-year-old went on to point out that the price of his lambs so high because of Brexit.
“Like me, many farmers were really worried about the trade deals when we were coming out of Europe,” he said.
“We thought there was going to be tariffs on exports and that meant the price of lamb would have plummeted.
“Thankfully our government managed to do the negotiations, there were no tariffs and the price stayed high.
“But, because of that concern I got rid of my lambs pre the end of December and I also decided to reduce my flock by a third.”
