Tuam Mart – Cattle Prices – 04-07-2022

According to Marion Devane, a “slight cooling in prices was evident in places” at Tuam Mart’s most recent cattle sale on Monday, July 4th, 2022.

The mart manager reported that despite this, a “good” demand prevailed throughout the latest sale.

She explained that cull cows reached €2,290, while heifers topped out at €1,670, bullocks soared to €2,050 and bullocks peaked at €1,160.
