Trade was sharper for both heifers and cull cows at Ennis Mart on Thursday (November 19th), according to a spokesperson.

They reported that there was strong northern activity for forward stock with this pushing many lots of cows to over €2/kg.

“Numbers similar to last week overall, with cull cows up on numbers and heifer numbers easier. About 40% cows were dairy stock but not straight from the parlour.”
