Tullow Mart’s general cattle sale attracted just over 450 entries on Friday (October 18th), according to Eric Driver – manager.

“The trade was somewhat improved especially for the forward-type store cattle.”

“Overall, a full clearance with trade somewhat improved across the board for all types with very large numbers on offer.” Driver added.

Bullocks:

Beef and forward-store, plainer Hereford and Aberdeen-Angus bullocks in excess of 500kg, sold from €1.85-€2.00/kg; continentals fetched from €2.00-€2.15/kg.

“Age taken very much into consideration.” the manager stressed.

Lighter Hereford and Angus stores in the region of 300kg sold from €1.85/kg, Friesians clicked from €1.70/kg, while young continentals met with strong farmer demand; prices ranged from €2.10-€2.45/kg.

Heifers:

“A very lively trade for beef-type young farmers; heifers possibly improved by €50-€50/head.”

“Plenty of farmer custom for the store heifers with the younger stock very much in demand.” Driver added.

Hereford and Angus lots went under the hammer from €1.85-€2.00/kg, while continentals varied from €2.00-€2.25/kg

Lighter Hereford and Angus-types pushed from €1.80-€2.00/kg, while continental-types climbed from €2.00-€2.45/kg.

Cull cows:

Friesian cows ‘freshly out of the parlour’ made from €1/kg to €300 over for fleshed-types. Continental store-type cows climbed from €250-€500 with the kg for heavier-type cows.

Calves:

Export-type Friesian calves climbed from €50 to €85; Hereford and Angus heifers climbed from €100-€180, while continental bull calves peaked at €320.
