Castlerea: Suckler pairs to €2,460 and dry cows to €2,000 as trade ‘holds well’

Castlerea Mart – Cattle Prices – 03-11-2022

According to Brendan Egan, inclement weather conditions and “poor” ground conditions drove numbers at Castlerea Mart on Thursday, November 3rd, 2022.

The mart manager reported that trade “held extremely well” on the back of activity from farmers, agents and exporters and increased northern demand, which resulted in a “good” clearance.
