Llama sells for €400
Meanwhile, last month, a “nicely marked” llama sold for €400 at the Leitrim-based mart.
The 3-year-old animal went under the hammer at its weekly sheep sale on Wednesday, April 20th, 2022.
Speaking following the sale, which took place at 8 pm, a mart spokesperson told That’s Farming editor, Catherina Cunnane:
“The llama was making €320 in the ring. However, with further negotiations outside, the final price the llama sold for was €400.”
The sale came weeks after two male llamas changed hands at another one of its weekly sheep sales.
The two domesticated South American camelids made €420 and €470 on Wednesday, March 30th, 2022.
