Dry cows to €2,130 and pairs to €2,040 at Castlerea

Castlerea Mart report – cattle prices – 09-09-2021

According to Brendan Egan, some 750 lots were on offer at Castlerea Mart on Thursday, September 9th, 2021.

The mart manager reported that “good demand continued for all classes of stock presented for sale this week, aided by recent good growth and a large contingent of buyers”.

“The bullock ring noticed the largest numbers on offer. Top-quality lighter stores recorded some very fancy prices, while the heavier lots remain a very strong trade.”

“In the heifers, prices peaked at €3.12/kg with strong northern demand and increased farmer activity.”

“The weanling rings are noticing increased farmer activity and increased numbers on offer. Heifers peaked at €3.67/kg and bulls peaked at €3.24/kg, with a very lively trade prevailing for quality.”

Dry cows reached €2,130 while cows with calves at foot made up to €2,040.

“Runners were in strong demand this week with lots making up to €820,” Egan concluded.
