ABSTRACT
The article presents financial data from a sample of less favoured area-breeding flock producers in Great Britain from 2005-2006. Results from a sample of 45 flocks in the hill and uplands show the group achieved an average net loss of £13.36 a ewe. As with lowland farms, top third flocks are attaining higher value of lamb output. A significant variation occurs in the level of fixed costs between top and bottom third producers.
