LAMB SUPPLIES TIGHTERSheep
Factories are paying €4.60/kg to get lambs this week, with prices of €4.65/kg and some deals as high as €4.70 for group lambs, Sheep Chairman John Lynskey has reported.
Some deals involve weights of up to 23kgs in places.
Lamb supplies are tighter and farmers should dig in and bargain hard before parting with stock.
Cull ewes are making from €2.30/kg to €2.50/kg at the factories.
