Lesser-quality bullocks back €30-€40/head at Ennis

Ennis Mart – bullock prices – 22-10-2021

According to a spokesperson, just under 600 bullocks went under the hammer at Ennis Mart on Friday, October 22nd.

They reported that the sale attracted “large” numbers of 550kgs upwards.

Speaking following the sale at the Clare-based mart, the spokesperson said:
