From the British novel "Follow You Home" by Mark Edwards. =========================================== Background: They're talk about human trafficking. A is a bad cop who secretly supports human trafficking. B is an agent. He'd captured women, made them pregnant then sold babies to underground market. A: How's business? B: Oh, not bad. Just did an excellent deal. But I could do with some fresh stock. A: I'll let you know if anyone suitable cross my path. B: Yes. The demand for high-quality product is stronger than ever. Especially among Russians. A: But right now, you only have this one sow? (mentions to the girl in front of him.) =========================================== In the underlined sentence, I don't sure about it. Does he mean "He got an excellent deal, sold the new baby but he has a little fresh stock (breeder; one girl at this time) so it's like run out of stock?". And that's why the police suggests he might send 'anyone suitable' to him. Am I get the point?
