Additional farmer customers drove the trade at Castlerea Mart on Thursday, November 7th, according to Brendan Egan – manager.

He said that some 700 cattle were presented for sale, and noted that trade was maintained and, in most cases, improved.

“The heifer ring reported a good clearance with similar numbers presented for sale, while in the weanling rings, numbers are starting to fall but demand has increased especially for the quality lots on offer.”
