The team had an opening bid of €1,000...
Fat and forward lambs were up by €1-€3/head, according to Coleman.
Heifers averaged €1,060, while bullocks sold to an average of €1,095.
A spokesperson reported a strong trade for all stock.
Quality store bullocks and heifers have noticed a price improvement, Egan said.
“It would appear that forward store bullocks and heifers, plus beef-type animals are getting scarce.”
Bullocks hit €745 over, while heifers climbed to €630 over and cows realised €470 over.
“Trade for bulls was very strong but heifers were a shade easier."
A smaller sale of lambs and cull ewes resulted in a sharper trade all-round, according to George Candler.
"Buyers were plentiful with the resurgence of grass growth.”
“Trade, overall, was dearer than last week with more farmer customers both buying online and around the two rings.”
This LMX, weighing 360kg, made €1310 or €3.64/kg
Ringside and online bidders competed for stock, according to Quigley.
A larger entry went under the hammer, according to Coleman.
Bullocks sold from €2.18-€2.61/kg, while heifers made from €2.04-€3.25/kg.
“A firm trade was reported with smaller stock and forward stores especially in strong demand this week, aided by grass growth and northern demand.”
Trade improved across all categories, according to Ann Harkin.
“A nice entry of calves met a fine trade with an online buyer giving from €370 to €400 for Friesian heifer calves, all the way from the east coast.”
There was a “very strong” trade for all categories, according to a mart spokesperson.
