Ennis Mart report – cull cow and heifers prices – 27-05-2021

According to a spokesperson, a smaller entry of cull cows and heifers went under the hammer at Ennis Mart on Thursday, May 27th, 2021.

Speaking following the weekly sale, they said:

“Not a huge amount of beef available in either ring but what was available met a very solid trade. Store cows were a shade easier but the quality of these was more variable also.”

“A number of aged bulls on offer today and these made to €1,900 for a CH of 1,025kgs. The average price per kg for the bulls today was €1.95/kg.”
