Ennis Mart – Cattle Prices – 20-12-2022

According to a spokesperson for Ennis Mart, over 300 head came under the hammer at its  final cattle sale of the year on Tuesday, December 20th, 2022.

The mart spokesperson reported that a “serious” trade prevailed for bull weanlings yet again, as shippers were “extremely active”.

They outlined that a smaller entry of calves turned out for the sale, and these soared to €430. Runner heifers made to €1,050 and runner bulls climbed to €830 at Tuesday’s sale.

The spokesperson said:

“Quality heifers were a strong trade also. In-calf suckler stock made to €2,500 and pairs made to €2,260.”
