Second-grade weanlings a shade easier at Ennis

Ennis Mart – cattle prices – 12-10-2021

According to a spokesperson, over 1,100 lots went under the hammer at Ennis Mart on Tuesday, October 12th, 2021.

They reported that trade for “quality lots, in the bull ring, held exceptionally well, but the second-grade entries were a shade easier”.

“Heifers were a shade easier also, especially the lesser lots. Again, in the runner ring, quality is very sought after and heifers in this ring topped out at €940 and bulls at €1,090.”

“A mixed run of suckler stock were on offer and made to €1,770 for a pair. Only a few calves were available and a Charolais bull calf made to €500,” he added.
