According to Tom McGuire, a Charolais-cross cow with a bull calf at foot topped the sale at Ballinrobe Mart on Wednesday, June 22nd, 2022, at €2,520.

The mart manager reported that heifers topped out at €2,090, while bullocks hit €1,450 and dry cows soared to €2,280 at its most recent cattle sale.

Speaking following the sale, the manager of the Mayo-based mart, said:
