“Calves need to be 3-weeks-old and well-fed to be saleable"

A similar sized sale at Kilrush Mart on Wednesday (March 13th) as last week, with a larger number of calves on offer, according to a mart spokesperson.

“More light, poor quality calves and these were a very poor trade making from €5 to €20 whereas good quality Friesian bulls made to €130.” The spokesperson said.

“Calves need to be 3-weeks-old and well-fed to be saleable.”

Hereford calves made to €265, while Continentals sold to €325. Mostly dairy culls were available for sale on Wednesday, while a mix of both Continentals and traditional breeds were on offer in the bullock and heifer rings.
