Manager’s report…Brendan Egan, Castlerea Mart

 

“700 cattle were presented for sale on Thursday last with trade maintained and in most cases improved driven by extra farmer activity.

  “The heifer ring reported a good clearance with similar numbers presented for sale while in the weanling rings numbers are starting to fall but demand has increased, especially for the quality lots on offer. Breeding stock, runners and the dry cow rings also reported good clearances.

  “Cows with calves at foot made from €1,140 to €1,240 per head. Springers made from €600 to €1,500 per head. Friesian bull calves made from €5 to €30 per head, young calves made from €185 to €210 per head. Runners made from €350 to €800 for the continental lots.

  “There were 200 bullocks on offer on Monday last with a sharper tone to the trade. In-spec young stock were in strong demand with more customers out trying to source stock. Older plainer stock attracted a little more attention also resulting in a good clearance.

  “Sales continue at Castlerea today (Thursday, 14th) with our weekly sale of heifers, cows, runners, and weanlings. All sales commence at 11 am”.
