Breeding hoggets to €270/hd at Kilkenny Mart

Kilkenny Mart report – sheep prices -16-08-2021

According to George Candler, over 1,200 sheep were on offer at Kilkenny Mart on Monday, August 16th, 2021.

The entry included a special sale of ewe lambs and breeding hoggets which peaked at €270/head.

The mart’s auctioneer reported that butcher-type lambs sold to €149 (56kgs) and cull ewes climbed to €214/head.

“A bigger sale in Kilkenny with cull ewes and lambs meeting a good solid trade resulting in a 99% clearance.”

“Breeding hoggets peaked at €270 but a number of hoggets did not reach the sellers’ expectations,” Candler remarked.
