Heifers back by €10/hd at Ennis

Just over 800 lots went under the hammer at Ennis Mart on Tuesday, February 25th, according to a spokesperson. 

“Big increase in calf numbers and 75% of these were Friesian bull calves. Farmers would be well advised to sell calves in bunches where they are similar.” the spokesperson added. 

Light, poorer calves made from €10-€40, while stronger-types ranged from €60-80; farmers purchased stronger Friesian bulls for €80-€140. Herefords peaked at €280, while continentals climbed to €340.  

Suckler pairs reached €2,080, while in-calf stock made to €2,000.  “Again, a few dairy stock on offer and generally making €1,200 to €1,400.”

“Again, trade for bulls was very strong, but slightly stickier in the heifer ring back €10/hd on the week.”
