Bulls over 420kgs are a “tough” trade

Approximately 800 lots were on offer at Ennis Mart on Tuesday (October 22nd), according to a spokesperson.

“Numbers back quite a bit; quality is very variable at the moment but the good quality lots are still holding a very good trade.”

The spokesperson noted that the heifer trade improved by €20-€30/head, in most cases, as more farmers made their presence felt at the ringside.

“Bit more activity from the shippers in the bull ring but these are also quite price-conscious and they are back €50/head on what they were spending a month ago.” said the spokesperson who stressed that bulls over 420kgs were a tough trade.

“Runner numbers back as it seems farmers are holding some stock in anticipation of a price rise.”

Runner heifers sold to €660 and bulls pushed up to €840; in-calf suckler stock made to €1,500 while calves hit €550.
