“The heifer trade was a shade easier, especially for plainer lots"

Close to 1,200 lots - which included 235 cull cows - were presented for sale at Ennis Mart on Thursday (October 10th), according to a spokesperson.

“Not that many dairy culls appearing yet. A large entry of aged bulls on offer and these averaged €1.43/kg with a top call of €1,740 for 1,225kgs.”

The spokesperson said that cull cows met a good steady trade with €1.90/kg achieved and a number hitting €1.70/kg plus.”

“A great yard of bullocks met a very steady trade but it must be said the quality was very good especially for lots weighing 530kgs to 600kgs and those born in 2018.”

“Again, the two-and-a-half-year-old stores a tough trade and €2/kg was almost impossible to achieve.”

“The heifer trade was a shade easier, especially for plainer lots; a 98% clearance was achieved overall.”
