Lively trade for cast ewes selling from €15 to €20 with the kg for the feeding types with up to €135 given for the heavy ewes today.
In the brood ring we had hoggets selling from €150 up to €185 today maybe a little easier but quality not as good while we also had aged ewes 3 & 4 yr olds selling from €115 up to €155 today for 2 yr old ewes with full and broken mouths selling from €100.
Overall a lively trade today in Tullow. Full clearance with trade steady amongst an uncertain factory price.
