Carnew Mart report: Strong factory and northern demand

Carnew Mart held its second cattle sale of 2021 on Saturday, January 9th. The sale attracted some 150 cull cows, 160 heifers, 250 bullocks and 70 calves, according to a report from Carnew Mart manager, David Quinn.

He said: “The trade was significantly improved with strong factory and northern demand for beef and forward store cattle with plenty of farmer active for stores.”

Prices were up on pre-Christmas levels at the mart’s first sale of 2021 the previous week, as reported by us.
