Kilrush Mart General Cattle Sale Including Calves


WEDNESDAY 14th March 2018

Big number of cattle on offer, especially in the calf ring. Again, in the calf ring the difference in light young calves and stronger calves well fed over 3 weeks is huge. Examples of this are where quality Friesian calves made €120 to €220 and real poor calves made €20. Quality whitehead bull calves made to €325. Limousin bull calves made to €350. A fine lively trade in the bulls and bullocks and heifers similar in trade to last week. Very good demand for all cull cows.

Ennis Mart, Weanling Bulls, & Heifers, Dairy & Suckling Stock, Runners, Calves & Sheep.

ENNIS MART TUESDAY 13th March 2018


Numbers much greater than in previous weeks with a doubling in calf numbers again this week.  Friesian bull calves generally made €25 to €60 for younger calves and stronger calves making €80-€160 Continental bull calves made to €590 and Continental heifer calves made from €320 to €520.  Whitehead and Angus bull calves made €170 to €370 and heifer calves in these breeds made €160 to €310.  Again, for weanling bulls and heifers trade was very strong with trade up to €50 per head dearer than previous weeks for the heifers this was reflected in the 97% clearance rate with quality again to the fore.  Some nice quality dairy stock made from €1,025 to €1,610.  In-calf suckler stock made to €1,390 with pairs making to €1,820 for a Blue cow with a heifer calf at foot. Hoggets improved today by €8 per head up to €150 or to €92 over their weight.  Cull ewes made from €70 to €135. Ewes with twin lambs made up to €200 and ewes with single lambs made to €170.
