"Bull weanlings 200kg-350kg were plentiful and while not making big money, they averaged €2.35/kg"

Just over 800 lots were presented for sale at Balla Mart’s weanling sale on Tuesday (October 15th), according to a spokesperson.

“There was a lot more farmer and feeder activity as shippers were not as active around the ring; export bulls sold in the region of €2.10/kg.”

Bull weanlings:

“Light bull weanlings 200kg-350kg were plentiful and while not making big money, they averaged €2.35/kg.”

Bull weanlings sold for up to €2.97/kg – a March-2019-born CHX - 310kg - €920 or €2.97/kg. Bulls 350kg-450kg averaged €2.24/kg, while those 450kg+ averaged €1.93/kg.

Heifer weanlings:

The spokesperson noted that approximately 250 heifers went under the hammer. Entries up to 350 kg averaged €2.26/kg, while those 350-450kg averaged €2.11/kg.
