Farmers and exporters were active for weanling bulls

Farmers and exporters made their presence felt for weanling bulls at Ennis Mart on Tuesday (September 3rd), according to a spokesperson.

The spokesperson outlined that some 750 entries were offered for sale; trade for bulls was solid, while the heifer trade was easier with the exception of good quality stores in the 320kgs-380kg bracket.

“A large entry of runners met a good trade but not quite as dear as last week but some very fancy prices for the top lots.” the spokesperson added.

Heifers runners peaked at €740, while bull runners topped out at €990; suckler pairings reached €1,670.
