Carnew’s 41st annual fatstock sale ‘breaks all records’ with prices to €3,000

Carnew Mart – cattle prices – 22-01-2022

According to Eugene Clune, yard manager at Carnew Mart, beef cattle were “on fire” at the mart’s last Saturday (January 22nd), 2022.

He reported that the sale “broke all records at the mart’ with prices to €3,000.

According to Clune, 60 cattle sold for in excess of €2000 and 10 cattle went under the hammer between €2,500 and €3,000.

Speaking following the sale, Clune said:

“A super sale, with 1,280 head of bullocks and bulls on offer, (300 cows sold Friday night) met a super trade throughout.”

“The yard of cattle on offer were a picture to look at and a credit to their producers.

“From start to finish, the atmosphere around the ring was electric. Northern customers and factory agents were present, while wholesalers and feedlots were very active online, battling it out for the cattle on show.”

“Store cattle were a steaming hot trade with the first of the ‘grass’ buyers starting to buy bullocks. Over 250 bulls were on offer. Customers from all over the country were on hand to buy bulls. These topped at €4.06/kg with €3.30kg freely available for the right cattle.”

“Prices on the day surpassed all expectations and resulted in a 100% clearance,” he concluded.
