Last week’s cattle prices

According to a spokesperson, some 550 lots came under the hammer at Ennis Mart on Tuesday, July 12th, 2022.

The mart held a special autumn-born weanling sale in conjunction with its general weekly cattle sale.

Commanding a top call of €2,680 in the heifer weanling ring was a Limousin-cross-Charolais, weighing 445kgs, a price that equated to €6.02/kg.

Meanwhile, in the bull ring, the category topper came in the form of a 600kg August-2021-born Limousin-Charolais-cross, at €1,810 (€3.02/kg).

Following the sale, the spokesperson said:

“A good-sized sale for our autumn-born sale of weanlings. Some super quality stock available in both rings and quite a few had great feeding in them, especially in the bull ring and more suitable to bull beef than castrate.”
