With so many empty spaces on our price table you could be forgiven for thinking that the sheep world had collapsed following the closure of Kildare Chilling last week.

However, at €4.80/kg+10c/kg QA the two ICM plants have reduced their quote by just 10c/kg, while Dawn Ballyhaunis, who were absent last week, return with an offer of €5.00+10c/kg QA.
