“Factories have adequate supplies from Northern Ireland the UK” — Candler

Some 600 entries went under the hammer at Kilkenny Mart’s sheep sale on Monday (September 23rd), according to George Candler.

“Butcher and factory-type lambs were more difficult to sell due to the fact that factories have adequate supplies from Northern Ireland the UK.” the mart’s auctioneer said.

Candler noted that store lambs, cull ewes and breeding met with good demand.
