According to Marion Devane, Tuam Mart’s cattle sale on Monday, February 13th, 2023, saw a “lively” trade with many factory agents, feedlot buyers and an “abundance” of farmers in attendance.

The mart manager reported that “turnout is strong for this time of year, and many farmers are booking in advance due to the calibre of prices being achieved in Tuam”.

“This week saw the send fortnightly weanling sale, which was met with exceptional trade for both bull and heifer trade which has provoked many to book in for our next evening sale on February 27th.”
