Low-weight, plainer types remained difficult to sell, while quality lots claimed top calls. 550 cattle went under the hammer, with notable prices recorded in the bullock and heifer rings.

Some 550 cattle were offered for sale at Castlerea Mart with trade similar to last week, according to Brendan Egan.

Demand for the forward store cattle was maintained with some notable prices reported in both the heifer and bullock rings.
Brendan noted bigger numbers of weanlings presented for sale this week with prices strongest for the quality lots, while the plainer, low-weight stock claimed poor prices.

Breeding stock and the cull cows reported good clearance, while demand for runners increased.
