Factory agents and northern customers ‘battle it out’ for heavy cattle

Carnew Mart report – cattle prices – 18-09-2021

According to Eugene Clune, yard manager at Carnew Mart, over 1,300 lots were on offer at Saturday’s general cattle sale.

He reported that all types of cattle “moved up another notch in price”.

“Factory agents and northern customers had to battle it out for the heavier fleshed cattle with these cattle meeting a very strong trade,” he remarked.

“Farmers and feedlot operators were very active for the stronger stores. Lighter cattle were a very lively trade throughout with farmers anxious to buy cattle for the grass that are available.”

“Cows were a serious trade throughout. Most continental cows sold over €2/kg all the way up to €2.50/kg. The majority sold between €2.20 and €2.40/kg.”
