Market Report Ennis Mart 15/05/2018

Ennis mart hosted another large sale this week with over 900 lots coming under the hammer. Trade held firm on the previous week. The better-quality heifers sold well and even increased on last week’s price but still plainer heifers harder sold. Calves were a very good trade for Continental bred calves with a 4-week-old Limousin bull calf making €565. Hereford calves made up to €320 and Angus calves sold to €300. Friesian calves sold to €225 with good demand for farmer type calves although numbers of these were limited. Sheep trade remained steady on last week with even a slight increase in prices, spring lambs making €158 for a pen of 12 weighing 47kg. Hogget’s sold to €162 for 60kg. Ewes and Lambs sold well with ewes with twin lambs making €210. Good entry of dairy stock on offer with both freshly calved cows and heifers and also in calf stock going under the hammer. These made from €920-€1,270. Sucklers were steady with a large number of cows and calves on offer. Top price of the day was €2,050 for a 2014 born Limousin second calver with a 1-month-old limousin bull calf at foot.
