Increased confidence was evident at the ringside, according to Egan

Increased confidence was evident at Castlerea Mart on Thursday, December 5th, with an improved trade driven by increased farmer activity and agents, according to Brendan Egan – manager.

They were active for quality store cattle as the end of the trading year draws closer, Egan added.

“The heifer trade reported an excellent clearance with some strong prices paid for quality lots.”

Weanling heifers noted price increases this week while the bull ring was similar to last week.

“The dry cow trade remained strong with big numbers still on offer while breeding stock and the bullock ring recorded excellent clearances.” the manager added.
