Castlerea Mart Market report Re sale 12/03/20
Largest turnout of stock to date this year and despite all the recent inclement weather conditions and other factors trade held up well for most categories of stock, The bullock and heifer rings reported good clearances with prices similar to last week. The weanlings rings reported a similar tone with demand strongest for the quality lots. Breeding stock were in strong demand this week while the dry cows were firm. Large entry of calves met with a good clearance but plain type lots remain a hard sell.
