Up to €3.59/kg for weanlings at Castlerea with strong export demand

Trade held up “very well” at Castlerea Mart on Thursday (August 27th), despite the recent spell of weather, according to Brendan Egan.

He said bullocks were a “very lively” trade with strong farmer activity and Northern demand also, with some “fancy” prices recorded for lighter stores, in particular.

“The heifer and dry cows reported good clearances while the weanling rings with bigger numbers on offer this week.”

“Weanling bulls topped out at €3.46/kg and weanling heifers reached a peak of €3.59/kg with strong export demand on offer.”

“Increased numbers of runners met a flying trade with farmers anxious to replace sold lots,” Egan concluded.
