Prices from €5 to €2,060 at Castlerea Mart

Castlerea Mart report – cattle prices – 15-07-2021

According to Brendan Egan, some 500 cattle went under the hammer at Castlerea Mart on Thursday, July 15th.

The mart manager reported that trade “held well with some fancy prices for quality lots”.

“The bullock ring saw a large entry with prices peaking at €3.26/kg. The heavier lots made up to €1,950, and with strong farmer buying agents and northern demand, a good clearance took place.”

“The heifer ring had a similar tone, and the lighter quality store heifer, in particular, was much sought after.”

“The dry cow trade and breeding stock remain in strong demand. Dry cows peaked at €2.57/kg while the cows with calves at foot made up to €1750.”

“Fewer suck calves on offer, but a good clearance took place. The weanling rings saw heifers fetch up to €3.27/kg with the bulls making up to €2.90/kg,” Egan added.
