Tuam Mart report – cattle prices – 04-10-2021
According to Marion Devane, over 700 cattle went under the hammer at Tuam Mart’s general cattle sale on Monday, October 4th, 2021.
The mart manager reported a “sharp trade across the board with premium prices being paid for good, continental-type store cattle”.
“Despite grass being plentiful, many farmers are anxious to get cattle off the land due to the deteriorating weather conditions.”
“While a shaper trade was reported, plainer-type stock were a stickier trade,” she remarked.
