“Weanling numbers remained small probably due to current grass growth and farmers are holding stock.”

Farmer customers made their presence felt at the ringside at Sixmilebridge Mart on Saturday (August 3rd), according to a mart spokesperson.

The spokesperson noted that agents were active for cull cows – both beef and store-types. “There was a large entry of store heifers meeting a very lively trade; quality types weighing 400kg sold.”

“Weanling numbers remained small probably due to current grass growth and farmers are holding stock.”

“Farmers are advised to move with weanlings before large numbers start appearing in marts. Good demand for lighter type bull weanlings.”

The spokesperson noted that there was a small entry of bullocks with strong farmer activity for quality lots.
