Ennis Mart, Bullocks, Heifers, Dry Cows and Aged Bulls

Ennis Mart

Thursday 14th March 2019


Numbers smaller today with just over 700 on offer.  This could be attributed to weather, Cheltenham and Brexit anxiety.  However, trade solid on the week before, and steers over 500 kg a very strong trade yet again.  In the cull cow section quality more variable and stores sold well but beef cows a shade easier.  A number of aged bulls averaged out at €1.67/kg with a Charolais of 1,150 kg making €1,740.
