Farmers ‘very active’ for 300-400kg bulls at Ennis

Ennis Mart – Cattle Prices – 06-09-2022

According to a spokesperson for Ennis Mart, more farmers were active at its most recent cattle sale on Tuesday, September 6th, 2022.

They noted that numbers are beginning to increase in runner and weanling rings.

The spokesperson noted that “they are meeting a great trade with many lots in this ring exceeding €3/kg”.

“Farmers were very active for bulls in the 300kg to 400kg bracket. Meanwhile, a dozen suck calves were available and these hit €420 – a price that was paid for a one-month-old Simmental bull calf.”

“Pairs in the suckler ring hit €2,700 and in-calf lots, with very few lots available, peaked at €1,600,” the spokesperson concluded.
