Brendan Egan noted that weanling numbers increased with good demand for the quality lots, plainer quality weanlings experienced a harder sell.

Bigger numbers of stock presented for sale on Thursday, with a firm trade for store bullocks and heifers at Castlerea Mart, according to Brendan Egan.

The manager noted that weanling numbers increased with good demand for the quality lots, plainer quality weanlings experienced a harder sell.

The cull cow trade held trade with trade best for the forward lots.

“While breeding stock and runners reported good clearances, buyers are becoming more selective with a variance between the plainer lots and the quality stock.” Brendan Egan said.
