SHEEP TRADE REMAINS STRONG

Prices, Sheep

IFA National Sheep Chairman Sean Dennehy said the sheep trade remains strong with hoggets making €6.40 to tops of €6.50/kg.

He said farmers should bargain hard as numbers are scarce, especially quality stock.

He added that farmers should continue to move stock as they become fit.

On spring lambs, he said €7.00/kg was the general price with some top prices of €7.20/kg paid.

Ewes are making €3.25 to €3.45 tops with the general run at €3.30 to €3.35/kg.
