Suckler pairs reach €2,620 at Ennis

Just over 1,100 entries, including 300 calves, were presented for sale at Ennis Mart on Tuesday, March 10th, according to a spokesperson. 

They noted that heifers met with a strong trade with a top call of €1,550 recorded for a 360kg roan-coloured-type.

“Quality in the bull ring was more variable and the top quality lots were a great trade but lesser lots were that bit easier on the week.” the spokesperson added.

“Calves, overall, were a good trade with the exception of a few poor Friesians that made from €5-€25. The general run of Friesian bull calves made €40-€80 with strong-types making €100-€120.”

Meanwhile, continental bulls peaked at €460, while Hereford bulls climbed to €350. 

Suckler pairs reached €2,620, while springers fetched up to €1,570 and dairy entries went under the hammer from €1,260-€1,400.
