According to a spokesperson for Ennis Mart, Co Clare, just under 730 lots changed hands at its general cattle sale of weanlings, calves, dairy stock and sucklers on Tuesday, April 18th, 2023.

They reported a “great” trade for pairs in the suckler ring and these made to €2980, with over 50% of lots exceeding the €2,000 mark.

Calf numbers were similar to last week and a “great” demand for strong types, both bulls and heifers.

Aberdeen Angus-cross calves fetched from €25 to €475, while Hereford-cross calves made €150 to €410.

The spokesperson commented: “Some exceptional prices were recorded for weanling bulls, especially the lighter lots and a number of these exceeded €4/kg.”

“Again, a strong trade for heifers and up to €4.30/kg was achieved in this ring, while a small entry of dairy stock made to €2040,” the spokesperson concluded.
