Following Ireland’s successful resumption of cattle exports to Libya earlier this year, the first shipment of sheep is expected this week.
Global Meat News reports that Irish mart prices have strengthened on the back of strong demand for live exports, including the Libyan deal, which is expected to number 4,000-5,000 lambs.
A veterinary health certificate approving the deal was issued just over a week ago.
Irish model and former Miss World Rosanna Davison was among those who have opposed the resumption of live animal exports to Libya.
