THINGS THEY SAID

I sometimes feel that I should carry around some sort of rectal thermometer, with which to test the rate at which I am becoming an old fart — Christopher Hitchens

THIS WORLD

First-born children tend to be taller, fatter, more allergy-prone, more cautious and have a higher IQ than their younger siblings.

ABOUT TRAFFIC LIGHTS

Traffic Lights is available to British pig producers on Thursday nights, advising the next day's spot price sentiment. Traffic Lights is available on this website and via Twitter. The Traffic Lights spot base provides sellers who have one-off loads of spot pigs (as opposed to regular weekly supplies) with a realistic minimum base price. In many cases it should be possible to achieve premiums over base. During periods of oversupply the Traffic Lights price will be well below contract levels but the reverse applies when pigs are short and the spot base will be well above contract rates.
