Cull cows to €2,200 and bullocks to €2,030 at Castlerea

Castlerea Mart – cattle prices – 03-03-2022

According to Brendan Egan, over 800 animals turned out for Castlerea Mart’s general cattle sale on Thursday, March 3rd, 2022.

The mart manager reported that larger numbers went under the hammer in both the heifer and bullock rings.

The bullock ring saw prices peak at €2,030, while in the heifer ring, entries peaked at €1880.

Egan noted that lighter stores were a “very” strong trade also, with a “large” attendance of buyers, both ringside and online “anxious” for stock.

“The weanling rings saw strong demand also with top quality lots reaching some very fancy prices.”

“Meanwhile, the dry cow ring reported an unchanged trade with a full clearance taking place.”

“The calf ring, with increased numbers on offer, saw good demand for quality calves, but plainer types were unchanged,” Egan added.
