‘This calm is expected against a very weakening beef trade in factories,’ – Driver

Over 250 lots met a tougher trade at Tullow Mart’s cattle sale on Friday (June 21st), according to Eric Driver – Manager.

“This calm is expected against a very weakening beef trade in factories.” he said.

Bullocks

Beef and forward type Friesians made from €650 with the kg up to €920 over.

“Store-type cattle met a pleasantly lively trade with farmer custom around the ring.”

Friesians sold from €1.75/kg, with up to €2.15/kg forked out for Hereford and Aberdeen-Angus-types; continentals climbed from €2.00-€2.50/kg.

Heifers
Trade remained steady for heifers; beef-types clicked from €650 to €900 with the kg, while Hereford and Aberdeen-Angus stores ranged from €1.90-€2.10/kg.

Continentals went under the hammer from €2.00/kg up to €2.70/kg.

Weanling Bulls

Weanling bulls varied from €2.20 to €3.00/kg.

Cull cows

Friesian cull cows fetched from €100 with the kg up to €280 with the kg for feeding-types; continentals made from €300 up to €650 over.

Calves

With a small entry on offer, Friesian calves pushed from €80 to €140, while Hereford and Aberdeen-Angus heifers sold from €100 upwards; up to €280 was recorded for Hereford and Aberdeen Angus bulls.

Some continental bulls made in excess of €300 but numbers are continuing to fall in this class, the manager noted.
