‘Mixed’ demand for store lambs at Ennis

Ennis Mart – Sheep Prices – 10-10-2022

According to a spokesperson for Ennis Mart, over 750 lots changed hands at its sheep sale on Monday, October 10th, 2022.

They reported that trade was “very much similar” to the previous weeks with better-quality type lambs from €2.60-€2.80/kg.

The spokesperson added: “Numbers of store lambs were not big and demand for these was mixed. The nice lamb of 38kgs plus was a fair trade, but very light lambs were only an average trade.”

At Monday’s sale, lambs reached €151/head, while cull ewes changed hands from €70-€136/head.
