About ClareMarts

Clare Marts is a farmer owned co-operative consisting of 2,500 shareholders. Clare Marts Ltd. has 4 sites with Ennis being the flagship and head office of the organisation.  The other sites are Kilrush, Scariff and Kilfenora. Sales are held weekly in Ennis.  On Tuesdays, weanlings, suckler stock, calves and sheep are on offer while on Thursdays we sell beef and store bullocks and heifers, dry cows and factory bulls, with a Friday sale in the springtime for dairy and sucker cows and some special pedigree and dispersal sales.  Sales in our other centres are seasonal and sale dates can be viewed on our sales diary.

Clare is renowned for the production of top quality weanlings and store cattle, which are produced from a well-established suckler base within the county.  These cattle are deemed very suitable for finishing at heavy carcase weights with customers from all over the country frequenting our sales particularly from the Midlands and Northern Ireland. The general base of the suckler cow herd within the county was of good type stock, however in order to further improve the quality of stock on offer The Society has, over a number of years provided several premia schemes to subsidise the purchase of top quality continental bulls.  These schemes have brought about a further improvement in the quality of stock available at our sales. Approximately 90,000 of these quality animals pass through our centres on an annual basis.

At Clare Marts Limited we provide the following services:

  • Purchase of animals for customers.
  • Transport Arranged
  • Lairage facilities available overnight
  • Trading of Entitlements
  • Land Letting and Sales
