Farmer & shipping activity in Ennis – spokesperson

Farming News/ Mart Reports: Ennis Mart – Cattle Prices – 25-07-2023

According to a spokesperson for Ennis Mart, a larger entry of almost 350 lots, including 20 calves, crossed the scales at its most recent cattle sale on Tuesday, July 25th, 2023.

They reported that the bull weanling ring witnessed had both farmer and shipping activity, with “some export activity” for heifers also.

The spokesperson said: “Again, some very strong prices were achieved in both weanling rings.”

“Quality was good overall today in both weanling rings. Good calves were on offer and continental calves hit €600 for a LMX heifer calf, born in May 2023 and out of a Charolais-cross dam.  A very small entry of suckler stock saw highs of €2,200 for pairs,” the spokesperson added.
