13/09/2018 - Castlerea Cattle Mart Report
Castlerea Mart Market Repo
700 cattle on offer this week. Trade remained unchanged from the previous week with forward store cattle remaining a good trade depending on the quality.
The Dry Cow trade is holding firm while in the Weanling rings demand has increased for the quality calves with plainer light weight stock more difficult to sell. Breeding stock and runners had good numbers on offer also with demand and prices holding and in the case of the better quality lots prices were improved.
