Bullocks to €2,380 and cull cows to €2,330 in ‘firm’ trade at Castlerea

Castlerea Mart – Cattle Prices – 14-07-2022

According to Brendan Egan, trade “remained firm” at Castlerea Mart on Thursday, July 14th, 2022.

The mart manager reported that a smaller entry went under the hammer as farmers took advantage of hay and silage-making weather.

He explained that bullocks peaked at €2380, heifers climbed to €1640, and cull cows topped out at €2330.

Meanwhile, cows with calves at foot soared to €2180, while weanling bulls fetched up to €3.46/kg and heifer weanlings changed hands for up to €3.59/kg.
