Ennis Mart Tuesday 9th July 2019

Just over 500 lots on offer today for the special sale for Autumn Born Weanlings.  Some fabulous quality on offer, a lot of the bulls were 380kgs to 500kgs and well done with meal.  In general bulls back about 15c/kg on last year but surprisingly the bulls over 500kgs back only 6c/kg.  Heifer’s similar story and prices back on 12 months from 7c/kg to 15c/kg.  Again in the suckler ring good demand for quality and pairs hit €1,770.  A small entry of calves meet a strong trade all round.  There was a share of export activity in the weanling rings today.  Lambs similar trade to last week generally €100 to €110 but a top call of €117.  Cull ewes made €53 to €114.
