There was an “electric trade” for heifer weanlings at Roscommon Mart’s Spring Show and Sale on Tuesday (March 5th), according to Maura Quigley – Manager.

Heifers made from €2.64-€4.06/kg, while bulls pushed from €2.45-€3.67/kg;

“The trade for quality Bulls was solid with good prices achieved, in particular, for the lighter-type animal with lots averaging from €2.45-€3.67/kg.”

“Heavier-type bulls were a little easier from the previous week’s sale. Farmers, agents and exporters were all anxious for stock resulting in a good clearance of lots.” The manager added.
