Farming News/Mart Reports on That’s Farming – Cattle Prices – 31-08-2023

According to a spokesperson for Ennis Mart, its final sale of the month saw just shy of 1,000 entries cross the scales.

On Thursday, August 31st, 2023, trade improved yet again with a 99% clearance recorded across the board.

The spokesperson noted that “some great stores were on offer, and these met a super trade”.

“Forward cattle were much sought after and many of these lots exceeded the €3/kg mark.”

“A great trade prevailed for the fleshy beef continental cows. A fine trade was also recorded in the heifer ring, even for the traditional breeds.”

“Again, a strong entry of aged bulls averaged €2.08/kg with a Limousin bull of 965kg making €2,220,” the spokesperson concluded.
