Brendan Egan told That’s Farming that quality lots acquired top prices. Exporters and feeders drove the trade at Castlerea Mart.

Despite the recent inclement weather conditions, a lively trade prevailed for all classes of stock on offer. Weanlings in particular aided by strong export demand and feeders reported an excellent clearance with some fancy prices paid for the top quality lots, Brendan Egan noted.

Bullocks, heifers and dry cows remained a firm trade also and there were increased numbers of calves and breeding stock on offer.

Speaking to That’s Farming, Brendan Egan, Manager of Castlerea Mart said:

“Good numbers were on offer and the weanlings were a particularly good trade. Weanling bulls improved by €30-40/head.”
