Almost 800 lots went under the hammer at Ennis Mart on Tuesday, March 2nd, according to a spokesperson.

“The weanlings were a strong trade all round and heifers were especially strong. Calf numbers were a bit smaller than expected but great trade all round for these.” the spokesperson commented.

“It is definitely encouraging to see calves well presented with a good deal of strength in them and this is helping to produce a very good trade.”
