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

Ennis Mart Tuesday 18th February 2020

Numbers pretty strong with just over 800 on offer and 250 sheep.  Trade was strong all round and bulls and heifers similar to last week and possibly a shade dearer for some lots of bulls but the highlight today had to be the massive trade for sucklers.  A massive trade for the pairs and with many of these lots making €1,700 to €2,400 but an exceptional price of €3,050 was achieved for a 2nd calver Limousin Cross with a Limousin heifer calf at foot of a month old.  A handful of dairy stock appeared today making €950 to €1,220.  Light Friesian bull calves made €30 to €60 but calves with a bit of strength made €70 to €140.  Continentals hit €445 and Whiteheads and AAX made to €280.  Again sheep trade very strong with a full clearance and these made to €141 for a pen of 8 at 54kgs.  Cull ewes made €86 to €130.

Ennis Mart. Cattle Show & Sale

Ennis Mart Thursday February 13th 2020

 

The annual Cattle Show and Sale was held today with a full yard of almost 1,100 cattle which included 300 cull cows.  There was 98% clearance all round.  Trade could only be described as very good.  Not a huge amount of beef in the bullock and heifer ring but 80% of them were short keep cattle.  Some great beef cull cows and these were a massive trade.  Some very fancy prices for BBX heifers for feeding.  Again a good entry of aged bulls and these averaged €1.86/kg.

Every Wednesday - Calves & General Sale

Feb. 11, 2020
Ennis Weanlings, Calves, Sheep, Runners, Cows & Calves

Ennis Mart Tuesday 11th February 2020

Numbers affected by the weather but still just over 600 on offer.  Trade remained very strong but some very good quality available in all rings.  Calf numbers slightly smaller than expected with Friesian bull calves making €40 to €100.  AA calves making up to €200 and Charolais bull calf made to €450.  Calves need to be up to 3 weeks old and well fed to command strong prices.  Pairs in the suckler ring made to €1,900 and in-calf lots made to €1,390.  Very strong trade in the bull ring with farmers, bull finishers and some export activity and heifer trade driven by farmers and specialised feeders.  Again hogget trade similar to last week with a top call of €142 for 9 at 55kgs.  A number of hoggets short on flesh today.  Cull ewes made €95 to 121.
