Exporters were active in Castlerea, especially for lighter calves

Some 700 entries were presented for sale at Castlerea Mart on Thursday (September 12th), according to Brendan Egan.

“Bullock and heifer rings reported good demand and despite the pressure on beef prices at the moment, demand was good for quality stores.”

“In the weanling rings, numbers and prices continue to grow aided by strong export demand especially for the lighter calves and increased farmer activity.”

Egan noted that trade for dry cows and breeding stock “remains firm” while runners reported an “excellent clearance”.
