Strong demand for BBX heifers at Ennis

Almost 1,100 entries, including 300 cull cows, went under the hammer at Ennis Mart’s annual show and sale on Thursday, February 13th.

“There was a 98% clearance all-round. Trade could only be described as very good.”

“Not a huge amount of beef in the bullock and heifer ring but 80% of them were short-keep cattle.”

“Some great beef cull cows and these were a massive trade. Some very fancy prices for BBX heifers for feeding.” the spokesperson added.
