These articles highlight the difficulties that farmers encountered when sending stock to the freezing works in the 1970s and 1980s – changing regulations that may or may not have been conveyed to the producers; constant strikes, often for seemingly trivial reasons, and over which the producers had no control; strikes that occurred without prior warning, resulting in stock in transit having to be returned to source at the owner’s expense and stock in yards losing condition while disputes were being sorted.
