Trade improves for beef and store culls at Carnew

Saturday, March 7th saw just over 1,470 entries, including 180 cull cows and 417 calves, go under the hammer at Carnew Mart, according to David Quinn.

The mart manager noted that trade was similar to the previous week with a full clearance recorded.

“The dry cow trade was improved again with prices for both beef and store cows up, with continental cows selling to €1,640 or €2.07/kg.”

“In the calf ring, exporters were very active, along with a large number of farmer customers.” Quinn concluded.
