According to Brendan Egan, some 750 cattle went under the hammer at Castlerea Mart on Thursday, November 11th, 2021, at its general weekly cattle.

The mart manager reported that the heifer ring witnessed a good clearance with demand and trade “on par” with last week. He said that peaked at €3.11 a kilo, while heavier lots made up to €2,080.

Speaking following the general cattle sale, he said:

“The weanling rings witnessed trade maintained for the quality lots, but plainer lots remain a harder sell at the moment.”
