Ennis Mart – Cattle Prices – 11-10-2022

According to a spokesperson for Ennis Mart, just over 1,150 lots crossed the scales at its most recent cattle sale on Tuesday, October 11th, 2022.

The spokesperson reported that “trade held pretty solid for bulls, with farmers active and more shipping activity”.

“Farmers and agents were active in the heifer ring. Quality heifers were a fine trade, but the average light heifer was harder work.”

“Runner heifers made to €800, and runner bulls sold to €1,000.  Again, a large selection in the suckler ring with pairs hitting €3,420 and in-calf lots made to €2,180.”

According to a spokesperson for Ennis Mart, just under 1,100 lots came under the hammer at its 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.”
