Trade dips for plainer weanlings at Castlerea Mart

A similar-sized entry went under the hammer at Castlerea Mart on Thursday (November 12th), according to Brendan Egan.

“Breeding lots, in particular, are a fine trade at the moment while the numbers of forward lots on offer are reducing.”

“In the weanling rings, quality lots are holding in price, while plainer type lots are a little easier. Dry cow numbers are also falling, but trade was similar to last week with a good clearance of lots.”
