'Good demand for stores'

Trade remained unchanged from last week at Castlerea Mart on Thursday (August 8th), according to Brendan Egan – manager.

“Better quality stock on offer and, in general, this helped the trade with good demand for stores.”

“Heavier forward cattle are under pressure at the moment but breeding stock and the dry cows reported good clearances.” the manager added.
