Tuesday’s sheep sale in Blessington Mart included a show and sale of Suffolk Cheviot hoggets and ewe lambs.

The trade for about 450 hoggets entered in the show and sale started off shaky, with only a few of the first 10 pens of hoggets selling on the first attempt. Prices for the lots that did sell ranged from €180 to €185, with lots not sold ranging in general from €160 to €170.
