Some 250 cattle passed through the ring; calves sold to €440; suckler units hit €1,650 and springers made up to €1,510. Sheep improved by about €2-3/head.

Some 250 cattle went under the hammer at Ennis Mart on Tuesday (December 18th), according to a spokesperson for the mart.

Trade held quite strong especially for quality lots, the spokesperson outlined. Runner heifers climbed to €645, while bulls topped out at €790.

A small entry of calves met a very good trade, the spokesperson said; they pushed up to €440, while suckler units sold to €1,650 and in-calve sucklers made up to €1,510.
