“Both the bullock and heifer rings reported good demand for quality stores with a variance in price for the plainer-type stock.”

With some 650 entries on offer, trade remained strong for quality short-keep cattle at Castlerea Mart on Thursday (May 30th), according to Brendan Egan – Manager.

“Both the bullock and heifer rings reported good demand for quality stores with a variance in price for the plainer-type stock.”

“The weanling rings reported strong demand while prices for top-quality dry cows were similar to previous weeks but the plainer-type cows were a harder sell.”

Suck calves and breeding stock continue to met good demand, with numbers on offer “remaining strong”, Egan added.
