Mart Reports/Farming News – Ennis Mart – Cattle Prices – 24-08-2023

According to a spokesperson for Ennis Mart, just under 700 cattle crossed the scales at its most recent cattle sale on Thursday, August 24th, 2023.

They reported “some very strong prices for top quality heifers”.

“There was a smaller entry of aged bulls and these were mostly continentals that averaged €2.18/kg.”

“Meanwhile, the real good quality store bullocks in 480-550kg category was a great trade with many of these making over €3/kg Also, there was more appetite for the forward types too.”

“Again, some great quality heavy cows in the sale, but dairy culls are still scarce. A great demand for better type cows,” the spokesperson added.
