Sucklers to €2,440 and culls to €1,830 at Castlerea

Castlerea Mart report – cattle prices – 14-10-2021

According to Brendan Egan, “large” numbers of stock were on offer at Castlerea Mart on Monday, Thursday, and last Saturday.

The mart manager reported that “trade remained strong for all quality lots, while plainer-type stock tended to be a little harder sold.”

“However, in some cases, like the heifer weanlings, both prices and trade improved especially for quality lots.”
