With over 1250 sheep on offer in Tullow we could see an improving trade once again for the hoggets with those fleshed and forward type hoggets from €4 to €5 up on last week.
Hoggets over 50kg selling from €116 up to a tops of €124 today with the majority between €119 and €123 while we saw the lighter store type hoggets between 45kg to 50kg lacking flesh selling in the region from €104 up to a tops of €115 with the majority of those 47kg to 48kg selling from €112 to €115. The lighter store hoggets selling from a base of €75 with those good clean ewes and weathers 38kg to 43kg selling in the mid region from €90 up to a tops of €105 for some of those 43kg.
Cast ewes selling from €15 to €20 with the kg with up to €25 given with the kg for younger fitter ewes while we saw the heavy cast ewes out to a tops of €132 today.
In the brood ring a very lively trade but yet not all out as dear as we saw the previous week with an honest trade for genuine 2, 3 & 4 yr olds carrying approx. 1.8 lambs selling from €165 to €182 with some older ewes selling to a base price of €130 upwards.
We have 100 in lamb ewes for sale next Tuesday 22nd January in conjunction with our weekly sheep sale.
