Some 1,100 entries including 280 calves went under the hammer; suckler pairs sold to €1,980, while calves hit €400 and dairy stock peaked at €1,590.

Some 1,100 entries including 280 calves went under the hammer at Ennis Mart on Tuesday (March 19th), according to a spokesperson.

Suckler cow numbers are remaining small, with pairs selling from €1,280-€1,980 and in-calve entries pushing up to €1,340; dairy stock peaked at €1,590.

“Friesian bull calves for export made from €40 to €70 with very poor demand for small, light weak calves; better quality Friesians sold from €70 to €120.”

Herefords fetched from €200 to €300, while Angus-types varied from €100 to €200 and Continentals realised €460.

“A great trade for good quality heifers especially lots over 350kgs. Bulls were a similar trade to last week.” The spokesperson added.
