Heifer and bull weanlings “were back about 15c/kg on last year”

Just over 500 lots were offered for sale at Ennis Mart’s autumn-born weanling sale on Tuesday (July 9th), according to a spokesperson.

“Some fabulous quality on offer; a lot of the bulls were 380kgs to 500kgs and well done with meal.”

The spokesperson noted that in general, bulls were back about 15c/kg on last year but entries over 500kgs were easier by 6c/kg.

“Heifers were a similar story and prices back on 12 months from 7c/kg to 15c/kg.” the spokesperson added.

With good demand for quality suckler pairings, a top call of €1,770 was recorded, while “a small entry of calves meet a strong trade all-round.”
