Demand remains strongest for light weanlings at Castlerea

A large entry presented for sale at Castlerea Mart on Thursday (September 10th), according to Brendan Egan.

“The bullock trade remains very strong at the moment with strong farmer activity as customers try and source quality stores with prices peaking at €3.02/kg.”

“The heifer trade remains similar to previous weeks with variance between the quality lots and plainer type stores.”

“In the weanling rings, demand is strongest for the lighter calves with exporters very active this week while the dry cow trade and breeding stock remain good sellers.”
