“Larger numbers from Northern Ireland and further afield helping to swell numbers in the factories” – Candler

Lambs met a tougher trade at Kilkenny Mart’s sheep sale on Monday (September 30th), according to George Candler – auctioneer.

Candler outlined that this was particularly true in the case of butcher and factory-type lambs. Lambs topped out at €105, while breeding hoggets peaked at €185 and cull ewes climbed to €120.

“Larger numbers from Northern Ireland and further afield helping to swell numbers in the factories.”

“Store lambs still meeting a solid trade will cull ewe prices well maintained,” he added.
