Friesian calves make from €25-€105/head at Kilrush

Kilrush Mart report – cattle and calf prices – 24-03-2021

Just over 400 entries went under the hammer at Kilrush Mart on Wednesday, March 24th, 2021, according to a spokesperson.

They reported a full clearance in the cull section with 50 head on offer in this ring. Furthermore, bullocks and heifers both met with a “very strong” trade.

“A fine trade for calves, but calves were well-presented and a full clearance was achieved. Lighter Friesian bulls for shipping made €25 to €70, whereas the better ones made €80 to €105.”

“Quite a number of Herefords and these made from €170 to €315. Aberdeen-Angus crosses ranged from €170 to €220.”
