‘Table-topping’ prices of up to €2,430 at Tuam

Tuam Mart – Cattle Prices – 23-05-2022

Purchasers paid what Marion Devane described as “table-topping cattle prices” at Tuam Mart’s most recent sale on Monday, May 23rd, 2022.

The manager of the Galway based mart noted that a short supply of cattle led to “soaring” prices, with cull cows to €2,430, heifers to €2,150 and bullocks to €1,910.
