'Hogget ewes possibly easier by €5-€10/head but maybe the quality was not as good either'

Over 2,500 sheep met a steady trade at Tullow Mart on Tuesday (July 23rd), according to Eric Driver – Manager.

Heavy-type lambs sold from €98-€107, while fleshed lambs between 44kg and 47kg ranged from €95-€104.

Stores

“Store lambs were a very lively trade with a lot of farmer custom around the ring.”

Stores weighing from 28kg upwards climbed from a base of €70; the majority of well-presented clean ewes and weather types – weighing from 32kg-35kg – ranged from €75 up to €82.

36-42kg entries went under the hammers from €80 to a top call of €92 – a price that was paid for well-presented ewe lamb types; the majority of these made from €82 and €88.

Cast ewes

“Cast ewes still continuing to set the trade here; €15-€20 with the kg for feeding-type ewes.”

Young ewes peaked at €30 with the kg, while heavier types topped out at €145.

Hoggets

The manager noted that over 400 hoggets passed through the ring. “Hogget ewes possibly easier by €5-€10/head but maybe the quality was not as good either.”

These realised €200, while a number of pens sold between €185 and €190; some very light hoggets made from €150.

Full-mouth aged ewes fetched from €115 up to €130, while 2 and 3-year-olds traded at €120-€160/head.
