Weanling bulls clicked up to €3.22/kg; continental bull calves sold to €610 and Continental heifer calves sold to €520.

Numbers were reported to be similar to last week at Ennis Mart. Continental bull calves made to €610 and Continental heifer calves sold from €320-€520. Traditional breeds including Hereford and Angus bull calves made €180 to €380 and heifer calves of these breeds fetched from €170 to €350.

Friesian bull calves generally sold in the region of €30 to €60 for younger calves, but stronger calves made €80-€180. The mart continues to advise that Friesian calves would want to be at least three-weeks-old and fed to meet customer demand.

WEANLINGS

Again, weanling bulls and heifers similar in numbers trade for bulls very strong with demand exceeding numbers with quality again to the fore in all weight categories. Heifers were a shade easier for lighter lesser quality heifers but top-quality heifers met a great trade.
