A large number of 2018-born entries went under the hammer.

With smaller entries of cattle being presented for sale, calf numbers held “better than expected” at Kilrush Mart on Wednesday (May 1st), according to a mart spokesperson.

A large number of 2018-born entries went under the hammer, while the majority of the cull cows offered for sale were dairy-types, the spokesperson said.

“Strong trade for bullocks and heifers as local farmers anxious for stock for grass.” the spokesperson added.

Hereford calves topped out at €245 while Friesian calves peaked at €100.
