€2,680 heifer tops Ennis’ autumn-born weanling sale

Ennis Mart – Cattle Prices – 12-07-2022

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.”

“Meanwhile, exporters also very active in the bull ring for the plainer lots and the real tops of the bulls,” the spokesperson added.

Meanwhile, just over 30 calves were on offer and these made to €810 – a 3-month-old Charolais bull – and a small entry of suckler stock climbed to €2,000 for pairs.
