A powerful trade for weanlings in Ennis, as exceptional Continental lots fetched over the €3.10/kg mark. Calf numbers doubled, with price reaching up to €490 for continental heifer calves.

A similar number of cattle went under the hammer at Ennis Mart this week, with a 96% clearance rate reported, a figure which can be reflected in the strong demand for weanlings. Calf numbers doubled, with Friesian bull calves generally made €55 to €80 for younger calves and stronger calves making €80-€150; Continental bull calves made to €400 and Continental heifer calves made from €320-€490. Hereford and Angus bull calves made €170 to €340 and heifer calves of these traditional breeds made €160 to €330.

Again, weanling bulls and heifers similar in numbers trade for bulls very strong with trade up to €30 per head dearer than previous weeks. The sale topper in the weanling heifers category led the sale at €3.64/kg.

SUCKLER & DAIRY STOCK

Some nice quality dairy stock made from €1,025 to €1,470. In-calf suckler stock made to €1,540 with pairs making to €2,240 for an exceptional Limousin cow with a heifer calf at foot.
