Prices from €5 to €2,720 at Ennis Mart

Ennis Mart – cattle prices – 08-03-2022

According to a spokesperson for Ennis Mart, just under 1,000 lots came under the hammer on Tuesday, March 8th, 2022.

They reported that dairy cows ranged from €1,300-€1,710, while pairs in the suckler ring topped out at €2,720 and in-calf lots made to €1,840.

Furthermore, the spokesperson explained that there was a “bit more life” in the calf trade, but light Friesian bulls were “still a tough trade”.

“Poor Friesian bull calves made from €5 to €45, and better lots ranged from €70 to €120.”

“Meanwhile, Aberdeen Angus calves sold from €120 to €280 and Hereford-cross calves made €150 to €310.”

“Again, weanlings were a strong trade with quite a number of bullocks available. Quality in the heifer ring was variable, but a fine trade prevailed for anything nice,” the spokesperson added.
