“Trade and prices for the forward cattle were reflective of the current beef prices”

Trade and prices for the forward cattle were reflective of the current beef prices at Castlerea Mart on Thursday (July 25th), according to Brendan Egan- Manger.

With some 500 entries on offer, he noted that younger stores proved to be a better trade. “Breeding stock and the calf ring reported good clearances, while the cow trade was similar to last week.

The weanling numbers have started to increase also with good demand for the quality lots on offer,” Egan added.
