Just over 800 cattle passed through the ring of Ennis Mart on Tuesday (November 13th), according to a spokesperson for the mart.

Runner heifers peaked at €800 while runner bulls climbed to €890. A small entry of calves met a good trade with a Limousin bull powering ahead at €490.

“The quality of suckler stock on offer was poor overall and this was reflected in prices with a top call of €1,250 for a pair.” The spokesperson said.

“Trade holding very solid for the better quality bulls and also for the heifers. Trade for the average bull a bit easier.” The spokesperson concluded.
