Tom McGuire reported that sheep dropped by €5-€10/head as factories have dictated the live trade, while “adverse factory price reports” have taken their toll on the cattle trade.

Cattle numbers were similar to the previous week, while the number of sheep offered for sale increased.

Trade has eased all round, with a belief that this is due to “ adverse factory price reports”, according to Tom McGuire, Manager.

  • A Charolais-X 380 kg - €1100.00 or €2.89/kg;
  • 4 Black Herefords sold together 538 kg - €1080.00 or €2.01/kg;
  • An Aberdeen Angus 410 kg - €1070.00 or €2.61/kg.

Sheep

As factories have dictated the live trade, this has resulted in a drop in prices by €5-€10/head, Tom McGuire noted.
