“The heifer trade was marginally better which was dominated by farmers.”

Almost 1,400 entries - including 400 runners - were presented for sale at Ennis Mart on Tuesday (October 8th), according to a spokesperson.

The spokesperson said that quality is getting variable in the weanling rings but despite this, quality lots still attracted good interest; plainer types met a tougher trade.

“The heifer trade was marginally better which was dominated by farmers.” the spokesperson added.

“Again, in the bull ring, it was a mix of farmers and shippers but again, shippers not as active as a few weeks back.”

Runner heifers made to €705, while runner bulls hit to €930 and suckler pairs topped out at €1,910.
