"With numbers of sheep on offer remaining small, prices have lifted in response, resulting in many buyers not been able to fill their orders" - Candler

Another small entry of sheep - 420 lots - went under the hammer at Kilkenny Mart on Monday (December 3rd), according to the mart's auctioneer Geroge Candler.

All lots met an excellent trade with a 100% clearance with a top call of €120 recorded for lambs, while cull ewes also hit this price tag.

"As is the general rule of thumb, the livestock trade is dictated by supply and demand. With numbers of sheep on offer remaining small, prices have lifted in response resulting in many buyers not been able to fill their orders." George Candler said.

"It does appear that the trade will remain firm in the months." He added.
