There’s an old saying in sheep farming that the sheep should keep the farmer rather than the farmer keeping the sheep. It may seem an odd thing to say, but it’s a reference to the profitability of sheep farming and the need for any business to be profitable rather than a loss making exercise.

Thankfully, due to reduced global production and increasing demand, most British sheep farmers are making better profits now than they have done in recent years and that’s good news for Asda as it means there should be plenty of British lamb to fill our shelves.
