Bulls up €50/head and heifers back €10-€15/head at Ennis

Ennis Mart – cattle prices – 01-02-2022

According to a spokesperson, a larger entry comprising just under 880 lots passed through the rings at Ennis Mart on Tuesday, February 1st, 2022.

They reported that bulls met with an improved trade, while heifers, on the other hand, were a “shade” easier.

“Bulls were dearer by €50 in cases, and heifers were easier by €10-15,” they pointed out.

There were just over 60 suck calves available, and these were a “very good trade” except for “poor, light” calves.

Generally, Friesian bulls made from €50-100, while a Limousin bull calf topped out at €580. Hereford bulls climbed to €400, and Hereford heifer calves fetched up to €290. Meanwhile, Aberdeen Angus sold for up to €270.

“Calves need to be at least 3-weeks old and well-fed to attract interest. Suckler cows were a strong trade, and in-calf lots hit up to €2,220. With only a few pairs available, these made up to €1610,” the spokesperson added.
