Castlerea Mart report – cattle prices – 10-06-2021

According to Brendan Egan, trade held “extremely well” at Castlerea Mart’s cattle sale on Thursday, June 10th.

The mart manager reported that “good numbers of stock were presented for sale”.

“The heifer ring, with some very good quality heifers on offer, reported an excellent trade with lots exceeding €3.00/kg.”

“The bullock ring witnessed similar demand this week as customers continue to source stock. The heavier lots remained a firm trade.”

“The dry cow trade saw prices peak at €2,090 while €2,290 was forked out for a Limousin cow and her bull calf at foot. The weanling rings continue to witness a good clearance with quality the key, while the calf trade remains very strong.”
