“A fine trade for calves if they had a bit of strength with the tops of the Friesian bulls hitting €200”

Over 300 lots including 100 calves were offered for sale at Kilrush Mart on Wednesday (March 20th), according to a mart spokesperson.

“A fine trade for calves if they had a bit of strength with the tops of the Friesian bulls hitting €200. Poor light calves were almost impossible to sell.”

Continentals pushed up to €340, while Hereford bull calves peaked at €290 and Hereford heifer calves followed at €215.

“There was a smaller entry of cull cows and mostly dairy-types on offer, with a mix of continentals and traditional breeds in the bullock and heifer rings.”
