The mart manager explained that weanling heifers made up to €2420, while weanling bulls topped out at €1900.

He reported that “trade held well despite the unease of the sterling with a good attendance of buyers present resulting in a good clearance”.

Last week, prices reached €2,270 for weanling heifers and €1,680 for weanling bulls at Castlerea Mart’s annual show and sale of continental weanlings on Thursday, September 22nd, 2022.
