Poor-quality bullocks and out-of-spec cattle were difficult to sell.

Over 1,000 entries were presented for sale at Ennis Mart on Thursday, October 31st, according to a spokesperson.

Some dairy cows ‘out of the parlour’ made from 0.60-0.80c/kg. “A small number of dairy cows ‘straight from the parlour’ and these were a tough trade, whereas the heavier fleshed Friesians were a good trade.”

“Heifers were a fine trade again; quality bullocks are holding a pretty firm trade.”

Poor-quality bullocks and out-of-spec cattle were difficult to sell. The spokesperson noted that fewer customers made their presence felt in the bullock ring.
