Up to €4.68/kg was forked out for weanlings

Ennis Mart’s annual weanling show and sale - which was held on Tuesday (August 27th) - saw up to €4.68/kg recorded in the bull ring.

“The shippers were very active in the bull ring and purchased just over 40% of these; it was farmer activity in the heifer ring.”

“The heavy bull weanling over 450kgs would be the toughest trade on the day. Overall, prices are back 2% on the same sale last year but stock marginally heavier especially in the heifer ring.”

“Runners again meet an excellent trade and pairs in the suckler ring hit €1,900. Heifer runners hit a high of €800 and runner bulls to €910.
