Factory agents and farmers actively compete around the rings for stock - heifers peaked at €3/kg; bullocks climbed to €3.08/kg & bull weanlings topped out at €2.99/kg.

A bigger sale with strong demand for Dry Cows at Sixmilebridge Mart on Saturday with factory agents very anxious for forward type lots - good factory type cows topped out at €2.39 per kg, while store cows ranged from €1.50 to €2.25 per kg.

Store heifers met a lively trade with a lot of farmer activity around the ring -quality lots sold to €2.60 per kg, while lighter grass type heifers were an improved trade on previous weeks, as lots hit up to €3 per kg.

Bull weanlings met a full clearance with strong shipping demand for lighter lots, and it was noted that bull beef farmers remained anxious for heavier lots.

Bullocks were a good trade with quality lots making exceptional prices- Continental stores realised €3.08 per kg.
