Last week’s cattle sale

A Belgian-Blue-cross-Limousin heifer crossing the scales at 380kgs and changing hands for €3,580 (€9.42/kg), was the highlight of Ennis Mart’s weanling show and sale on Tuesday, August 23rd, 2022.

That is according to a spokesperson who reported that just under 800 weanlings came under the hammer.

Speaking following the general cattle sale, they said:

“There were some fabulous entries on offer, especially in the bull ring of all weights.”

“In the bull ring, it was a mixture of farmers buying to castrate, bull beef finishers and shippers, whereas in the heifer ring, farmers and feeders that were active.”

“A great demand prevailed for heavy bulls. A small entry of suckler stock met a strong demand, with pairs hitting €2,500 in in-calf lots to €2,080,” the spokesperson added.
