According to a spokesperson for Ennis Mart, some 546 lots, including 25 calves, came under the hammer at its general cattle sale on Tuesday, January 17th, 2023.

They reported that a “strong” trade prevailed for bull and heifer weanlings, but “they were no dearer than last week overall”.

“There were, however, some very fancy prices for some quality lots, with a bit more bite in the heifer ring.”

“Calves made to €420 on occasions, while a mixed run of suckler stock, which were mostly in-calf lots, made to €1,650 and pairs topped out at €1,820,” the spokesperson added.
