Teams to €2,120 and culls to €1,750 at Castlerea

Castlerea Mart report – cattle prices – 22-07-2021

According to Brendan Egan, some 450 lots were on offer at Castlerea Mart on Thursday, July 22nd, 2021.

The mart manager reported that trade held “very well” – especially for quality lots.

“The bullock trade witnessed no change in demand or prices with top-quality, light stores exceeding €3.00/kg. The heavier lots made up to €1710 with fewer heavier stock on offer this week.”

“The heifer ring saw light stores peak at €2.88 a kilo and the lots made up to €1760. The dry cow trade saw prices peak at €2.36 a kilo while €2120 was paid for a Limousin cow and her Charolais heifer calf at foot.”

“Demand for calves and runners is very good at the moment as farmers are out in force replacing sold stock.”

“The weanling ring, with better quality lots on offer this week, saw heifers make up to €1110 and a 10-month-old Charolais made €1410.”
