Ennis Mart. Cull Cows, Heifers, Bullocks, Aged Bulls

Ennis Mart Thursday Oct 17th 2019

 

Sale similar in size to last week in both bullocks and heifers but cull cow numbers smaller with just 200 of these on offer. Very few dairy culls in the sale again today.  Overall trade pretty similar to last week but plainer stock in all categories getting stickier to sell.  Some great beef cows in it again and these met a good trade overall and up to €1.86/kg reached. 

Quality stores born in ’18 in bullocks and heifers still holding a very solid trade.  A good entry of aged bulls averaged €1.35/kg with a top call of €1,630 for a Limousin weighing 1,110kgs.

Kilrush General Cattle Sale

KILRUSH MART

WEDNESDAY 16th October 2019

Big sale again in Kilrush with almost 400 head on offer.  There was a large entry of bullocks.  It was mostly traditional breeds in the bullock and heifer sections but predominantly dairy type cull cows and numbers in this section not as large as anticipated.  Many farmers and specialized feeders still finding it very hard to get cattle killed as there seems to be a huge backlog still in the system.  The average and poorer quality stock are a tough trade overall especially heifers.  There were some lovely quality whitehead bullocks many of which would grade ‘R’.

Ennis Weanlings, Calves, Sheep, Runners, Cows & Calves

Ennis Mart Tuesday 15th October 2019

Numbers smaller than last week but still 1,070 lots on offer.  Quality getting quite variable but again quality lots were an exceptional trade.  Heifers slightly tougher on the week.  The shippers were quiet today in the bull ring also and more farmers about.  The best trade in the bulls was the top quality charolais and limousins in the 320kg to 360kg bracket at the top end and also nice store calves in the 230kg to 260kg bracket.  Again another large entry of runners and heifer runners hit €660 and bulls hit €855.  A selection of in-calf heifers made €1,120 to €1,450.  Pairs in the suckler ring made to €1,520.  The sheep trade was firm with a handful of wholesaler lambs making to €120 but factory lambs generally making €90 to €97.  Cull ewes made €66 to €94.
