Sale Regulations

Cattle

All cattle presented for sale at Clare Marts require 2 tags and a valid passport signed by the current owner/keeper.

The Following Test  Requirements apply:

Tuberculosis Testing (TB)

All cattle 6 weeks and over including calves have to be within 12 months of TB test.  The animal's passport will need to have the date of test, showing when the animal was tested.

Brucellosis Testing

It is no longer a requirement for the pre-movement of stock.

BVD

All calves born from 1st Janaury 2013 must be BVD Tested

Export Testing

In order for animals to be eligible for the live export market they have to be within 30 days of TB test and must be from a complete clear herd.  If animals are outside the 30 days then they can be tested by the exporter provided it is at least 42 days from their last TB test.  All animals between 30 days and 42 days of their last T.B. test are neither eligable for export or to be tested.  So when selling stock that may be suitable for export make sure they are within 30 day test or more than 42 days since their previous test. There is no need to have export certs attached to the passports as Clare Marts receives this infromation from the department.

Sheep

All sheep including lambs presented for sale must be identified with a full set of EID tags, i.e. one conventional tag in the sheep’s left ear and a corresponding electronic tag placed in the sheep’s right ear. All sheep moved to and from a livestock mart must also be accompanied by a newly issued dispatch document containing a barcoded document serial number.

Ennis Mart. Cull Cows, Heifers, Bullocks, Aged Bulls

Ennis Mart Thursday Oct 10th 2019

 

Very big sale today with just shy of 1,200 on offer.  This included 235 cull cows.  Not that many dairy culls appearing yet.  A large entry of aged bulls on offer and these averaged €1.43/kg with a top call of €1,740 for 1,225kgs.  Cull cows met a good steady trade with €1.90/kg achieved and a good number of cows hitting €1.70/kg plus. 

      A great yard of bullocks met a very steady trade but it must be said the quality was very good especially for lots weighing 530kgs to 600kgs and born 2018.  Again the 2½ yr old stores a tough trade and €2/kg almost impossible to achieve.  Heifer trade a shade easier especially for plainer lots.  A 98% clearance was achieved overall.
