“Overall, a steady trade amongst an unsettled time in the beef sector which could only suggest farmers continue to show positive mantra for the beef trade going forward"

There was strong export demand for lighter-type continental bull weanlings at Tullow Mart on Friday (September 20th), according to Eric Driver.

He noted that the bull weanling show and sale — which attracted over 300 entries – opened to a lively farmer trade.

Bulls over 480kg sold from €2.00-€2.20/kg with a “very lively demand for well-presented young aged heavy bulls of the R & U grade-type.”

Bulls north of 400kg met with a steady trade; plainer types fetched from €2.00/kg, while the majority of R and U type bulls ranged from €2.20/kg and up to €2.80/kg recorded for some U grade Belgian Blue-types.

The lighter calves were a “very brisk trade due to the lively export demand” and they climbed from €2.30/kg-€2.90/kg and some R and U grade Belgian Blue-types pushed up to €3.00/kg.

“Overall, a steady trade amongst an unsettled time in the beef sector which could only suggest farmers continue to show positive mantra for the beef trade going forward and this was recognised around the ring.”
