There was a nice offering of butchers’ lambs in Fermoy Mart for this week’s sale and they made up the bulk of what was on offer. Price-wise, €1.95/kg to €2.14/kg would have picked up most of the lambs in a sale of very consistent stock. Ewe lambs and wethers tended to be more in demand and they made a few cents more than any ram-only pens of lambs.

A pen of lambs with no rams, they weighed 39.5kg and sold for €81, €2.05/kg.
