Cattle trade improves in all rings in Ennis

Farming News/Mart Reports on That’s Farming: Ennis Mart – Cattle Prices – 19-09-2023

According to a spokesperson for Ennis Mart, numbers “fell slightly” at Tuesday’s (September 19th, 2023), sale, due to the staging of the National Ploughing Championships, with just short of 400 on offer.

The spokesperson noted that “despite the severe weather, trade improved in all rings, with a serious demand for bulls and more farmer buyers in the heifer ring”.

“The sale attracted only a handful of sucklers, and pairs topped out at €3,000.”

“Again, a handful of calves came under the hammer and a top price of €440 was achieved for a SIX bull calf,” the spokesperson added.
