They reported that trade “held well overall” with “strong farmer demand”. The sale attracted a mix of both traditional and continental breeds.

Better-quality-type Friesian cows made up to €1.24/kg, while poorer-types made just over €1.00/kg. Heifers generally ranged from €2.00/kg upwards, with just over €1.80/kg recorded for traditional-types.

On the bullock end, again traditional-types hovered around the €1.70-€1.80/kg mark with close to €2.50/kg for continentals.
