Cattle from €5 to €2,810 at Castlerea

Castlerea Mart – Cattle Prices – 27-04-2023

According to Brendan Egan, over 800 lots came under the hammer at Castlerea Mart’s cattle sale on Thursday, April 27th, 2023, writes farming journalist, Catherina Cunnane.

The mart manager reported that trade was similar to last week, with quality stores “remaining a great trade” as farmers sourced stock for further feeding.

The weanling rings, Egan noted, witnessed a variance in price, depending on quality, with top bulls exceeding €4.00/kg and heifer weanlings topping out at €1360.

Cows with calves at foot topped maxed out at €2,810, while a dairy sale of 21 cows witnessed a full clearance.

Bullocks changed hands for up to €2420, while heifers peaked at €2000 and cull cows topped out at €2450 at Thursday’s sale.
