A powerful trade in Carnew, following the fatstock sales. Cull Cows made €940 over, beef heifers made €860 over and FR bullocks made €615 over.

Large numbers on offer with 1035 cattle and 150 calves. All classes of cattle met a brisk demand with a full clearance and an improved trade, particularly for beef & forward store cattle. There was strong export for weanlings.

In the calf ring, live exporters were more active for Friesian bulls with a strong farmer demand for continentals. A special suckler sale saw 90 sucklers on offer with a full clearance and strong interest in both cows with calves at foot and springers.
