Cattle numbers slip in Ennis with prices from €10 to €2,680

Ennis Mart – Cattle Prices – 06-05-2023

Cattle numbers dropped back to close to 300 head at Ennis Mart’s general cattle sale on Tuesday, June 6th, 2023.

A smaller entry of just over 400 lots, including some 130 calves, came under the hammer at the previous week’s sale, as reported by That’s Farming in this news article.

Calf numbers were back with 55 on offer on Tuesday, and these met with what the spokesperson described as “a very good trade”, especially for strong types with highs of €715 for a Limousin-cross bull calf.

The spokesperson commented that “bull weanlings met a lively trade and made to €3.96/kg”.

“There was a serious demand in the heifer ring as these made to €4.24/kg. There was a mixed sale of suckler stock with the highlight being a BBX cow with a LMX calf topping out at €2,680.”
