Tullow Mart’s monthly continental sale – which was held on Friday, August 23rd - attracted just over 260 entries, according to Eric Driver – manager.

Bullocks

Friesian bullocks hit €500 with the kg, while continental-types followed at €920 over – a price that was paid for an entry weighing 750kg.

Plainer-type Hereford and Aberdeen-Angus stores varied from €1.90-€2.05/kg, while some Friesian-types realised €1.75/kg. “A good lively trade for those well-made R grade continental type- bullocks.”

Heifers

Plainer Hereford-types sold to €550 over, while continental beef-types topped out at €900 with the kg. HE and AA stores fetched from €1.90-€2.05/kg - depending on age - while continentals climbed from €2.00€2.40/kg. “A very lively trade for those 350kg to 420kg.” Driver added.

Cull cows

In the cow ring, Friesians traded from €100 with the kg, while continental stores varied from €300-€450 over.
