Last week’s cattle prices

According to a spokesperson for Ennis Mart, just over 900 lots changed hands at its cattle sale on Tuesday, November 8th, 2022.

The spokesperson reported that a small entry of suckler stock met an “excellent” trade with in-calf lots to €2,300 and pairs to €2,280.

Runner heifers changed hands for up to €800, and runner bulls made to €1,000. A small entry of calves made to €460 for a one-month-old Charolais-cross bull calf.

According to the spokesperson, quality bulls over 320kgs were a “very solid” trade, but plainer and lighter lots were a “shade” easier.

The spokesperson commented: “In the heifer ring, a similar story and again, the better lots held with, the lesser lots slipping slightly.”

“However, the overall average price at Tuesday’s sale was slightly stronger today than last week.”
