“Beef and forward-type heifers are meeting a steady trade as we have seen in the last number of weeks with good demand for quality continental-types”

There was a lively trade at Tullow on Friday (March 8th), with strong demand for continental-type stores, according to Eric Driver – Manager.

Beef and forward FR stores sold from 550 with the kg up to a tops of €945 over; bullocks in the 480-550kg weight bracket met with a lively trade, the manager added.

Continental bullocks 400kg-480kg ranged from €2.10 to €2.35/kg with the lighter stores selling from €2.20 to €2.50/kg.

Heifers
“Beef and forward-type heifers are meeting a steady trade as we have seen in the last number of weeks with good demand for quality continental-types,” Eric added.

Hereford and Angus stores fetched from €1.85 to €2.05 per kg depending on quality and age, with continental-types pushing from €2.00-€2.60/kg.

Cull Cows
FR feeding cows went under the hammer from €50 under the kg up to €150 over, with some peaking at €300 over the kg.

Meanwhile, continentals sold from €150 for the lighter, older-types with up to €600 with the kg forked out for heavy continentals.

Calves
There was no great change in the calf ring, with lighter FR shipping calves selling from €10 to €40, the manager said.

Some stronger fleshed FR calves made from €50 up to €90, with up to €170 forked out for calves in this category.

Hereford and Aberdeen-Angus heifers varied from €70 up to €200, while bulls ranged from €120-€260.

A top call of €350 was paid for continental calves on a number of occasions.

Driver said that there was good demand for fleshed well-fed calves, while the lesser-types met a harder trade due a smaller number of customers for these entries.
