Ennis: ‘Very little’ shipping activity with ‘cattle no dearer’

Ennis Mart – Cattle Prices – 04-10-2022

According to a spokesperson for Ennis Mart, just under 1,100 lots came under the hammer at its most recent sale on Tuesday, October 4th, 2022.

The spokesperson noted that trade “held pretty steady, but cattle were no dearer”.

“In saying that, some of the quality lots in both rings were a serious trade.”

“It was nearly all farmer customers in both rings with very little shipping activity and this was limited to the bull ring.”

The sale saw suckler cows and calves today hit €3,180 for pairs, while in-calf lots soared to €2,120.

A dozen calves fetched up to €400 for a Limousin heifer calf, while runner heifers sold to €840, and bulls topped out at €940.
