Forward, plainer-type lots were a tougher trade

Trade and prices varied - depending on the categories of stock - at Castlerea Mart on Thursday (August 29th), according to Brendan Egan – manager.

He noted that lighter quality stores witnessed good demand while the forward, plainer-type lots were a tougher trade.

“The cow trade has remained strong and runners and breeding stock reported good clearances while the weanling trade was helped by strong export demand.”

“Larger numbers of stock presented for sale this week as a result of the recent wet spell.” he added.
