Some plainer lots slightly easier at Castlerea

Trade has held up well this week at Castlerea Mart, despite inclement weather conditions, according to Brendan Egan.

The mart manager reported that the bullock trade had a good attendance of buyers present.

Some plainer lots were slightly easier, but quality stores remained a good trade, he said.

“In the heifer ring, trade was maintained and, in some cases, improved upon with better quality lots on offer this week.”

“Runners and weanlings were a very lively trade as farmers were out in force trying to source stock while the breeding stock and dry cows reported a good clearance,” Egan added.
