Lighter stores highly sought after at Castlerea

Trade remained very strong for all classes of stock at Castlerea Mart on Thursday (July 16th), according to Brendan Egan who reported a larger entry than the previous week.

He said that bullocks, heifers, and weanlings reported good clearances while increased numbers of runners met a very lively trade.
