According to a spokesperson, weanling entry numbers were similar to the previous week at Ennis Mart on Tuesday, August 3rd, 2021.

The spokesperson reported that there was a “slight increase” in runner numbers on the previous week.

“Calf numbers were small with a 3-month-old Charolais bull calf making €670. Pairs in the suckler ring made €1,860.”

“Quite a few heifers were over the 400kg mark. Top-quality bulls frequently hit €3/kg, especially for bulls up to 350kgs. Again, good heifers were sought after,” the spokesperson added.
