Butcher and factory-type lambs were easier by €2-€3/head

Butcher and factory-type lambs were easier by €2-€3/head at Kilkenny Mart on Monday, October 14th, according to George Candler – auctioneer.

Some 440 entries were presented for sale; the auctioneer noted that store lambs and cull ewes met a steady trade.

“Reduced quotes from factories [are] not helping the situation. It appears the large supply of lamb coming from the North and further afield means factories do not have source extra supplies.”

“The increase in factory numbers is very much Brexit-orientated,” Candler added.

Butcher lambs - €1.95-€2.00/kg or €97-€104/head:

  • X8 56kg - €102;

  • X24 53kg - €104;

  • X10 50kg - €98;

  • X11 49kg - €98.

Factory lambs - €1.95-€2.00/kg or €83-€96/head:

  • X10 48kg - €96;

  • X12 46kg - €92;

  • X8 43kg - €86;

  • X10 42kg - €84.

Store lambs - €1.90-€2.15/kg or €66-€82/head:

  • X15 41kg - €80;

  • X8 39kg - €81;

  • X8 37kg - €79;

  • X8 35kg - €68.
