Bullocks to €2,050 and culls to €1,990 at Castlerea

Castlerea Mart report – cattle prices – 29-07-2021

According to Brendan Egan, some 500 cattle presented for sale at Castlerea Mart on Thursday, July 29th, which “would be above the normal number on offer for race week”.

The mart manager reported that trade remained “very strong” this week with quality cattle commanding “some very fancy prices”.

“Cows with calves at foot peaked at €1,960 while the dry cows made up to €1,990. Calves and runners are in strong demand with farmers very active this week to replace sold lots. Meanwhile, the weanling rings witnessed good demand also even though numbers on offer remain small.”

“The bullock ring attracted a lot of customers this week. Quality, lighter stores reached €3.27/kg while the heavier lots made up to €2,050.”

“The heifer ring had good demand again this week. Prices peaked at €3.17/kg for store lots while the heavier lots were in strong demand also,” Egan added.
