“Trade was similar to last week all-round with no great change”

Over 1,000 entries passed through the ring at Ennis Mart on Tuesday (April 23rd), according to a mart spokesperson.

“Trade was similar to last week all-round with no great change. Not quite as many buyers around, but trade held firm with farmers and shippers in the bull weanling ring and heifers dominated by feeders and farmers.” The spokesperson noted.

Suckler pairs led the sale at €1,900, while dairy entries topped out at €1,330.
