Castlerea Mart report – cattle prices – 19-08-2021

According to Brendan Egan, a “large” entry of cattle went under the hammer at Castlerea Mart on Thursday, August 19th, 2021.

The mart manager reported that trade for both bullocks and heifers “held extremely well”.

In the bullock ring, top quality stores peaked at €3.21/kg, while heavier lots made up to €1,040 over the kg. The heifer ring recorded a top call of €1,760 for a 530kg Charolais entry.

Egan commented: “Cows with calves at foot reached €1,740 while dry cows peaked at €2,030.”

“Calves and runners are in strong demand at the moment. The weanling rings are noticing very strong demand also as numbers on offer start to increase,” Egan concluded.
