Farmers were scarce, but additional exporter buyers made their presence felt at the ringside for weanlings. The trade for heifers improved.

A smaller offering of stock helped to steady the trade for cattle at Ennis Mart on Tuesday, according to a spokesperson for the mart.

The trade improved for heifers, with some quality lots on offer. On the weanling front, the trade was driven by exporters, who made their presence felt at the ringside; farmers were scarce, but additional export buyers helped to drive the trade.

Suckler cows with calves ranged from €1,020 up to €1,730, while calf numbers were smaller as expected, but trade remained firm.
