A large entry was presented for sale on Tuesday (March 12th), despite adverse weather conditions, with trade holding quite firm especially for the quality lots, according to a mart spokesperson.

A number of extra customers made their presence felt at the ringside in the bull and heifer ring, with more export activity, they added.

“The heavier bull was not as lively as the lighter, store-type, while calves met a very solid trade with some nice quality stock available and mostly 3-weeks-old.”

Friesian bulls ranged from €15 to €155 with the better-quality well-fed calves fetching from €80 to €155; the shipper-type calf varied from €40 to €75.

Continental calves climbed to €415, while Hereford-types ranged from €180-€200 and Angus entries went under the hammer from €180-€300.

Suckler pairs made to €2,180, while in-calve entries peaked at €1,450 and dairy stock pushed up to €1,400.
