Good size sale with over 600 cattle on offer. Quite a number of forward cattle available in the bullock ring, but bullock numbers well back on previous weeks. Some excellent quality continental cull cows available today. There was a bit more bite for the heavier bullocks, as the heifer trade remained similar to last week.

Ennis Mart

Tuesday May 14th, 2024

Good size sale again today with over 800 cattle on offer, which included 125 calves, that were all sold. Calf trade was good today, as there was a lot of strong calves available up to 2 months old. AAX calves made from €85 to €390 & HEX calves made from €95 to €465. Continental calves made to €550. Again, bull weanlings were a very strong trade with farmers and shippers very active in this ring, but the heifer trade was a slight bit harder work. Some nice quality suckler stock available and these made to €2500 for pairs.
