Numbers pretty strong with just over 800 on offer and 250 sheep.  Trade was strong all round and bulls and heifers similar to last week and possibly a shade dearer for some lots of bulls but the highlight today had to be the massive trade for sucklers.  A massive trade for the pairs and with many of these lots making €1,700 to €2,400 but an exceptional price of €3,050 was achieved for a 2nd calver Limousin Cross with a Limousin heifer calf at foot of a month old.  A handful of dairy stock appeared today making €950 to €1,220.  Light Friesian bull calves made €30 to €60 but calves with a bit of strength made €70 to €140.  Continentals hit €445 and Whiteheads and AAX made to €280.  Again sheep trade very strong with a full clearance and these made to €141 for a pen of 8 at 54kgs.  Cull ewes made €86 to €130.
