10/07/2018 - Ennis Weanling Mart Report

SPECIAL AUTUMN BORN SALE

A large sale today with numbers well up on the previous weeks trade remains tough due to the weather and poor grass growth. Weanling bull trade held reasonably well with trade been driven by shippers and specialized feeder’s, farmers were scarce in general quality was good today in the bull ring with some lots of top quality bulls on offer, but plainer type bulls harder sold again. Heifers were a tough trade this week with exception of top quality lots. Suckler cows with calves ranged from €1,050 up to €1,770. Sheep trade was less again this week reflecting the current market for lamb and factory quotes decreasing as supply increases. Cull ewes made up to €130. Hogget’s made to €117 for 58kg. Spring lambs made up to €122 for a pen of 8 weighing 47kg. Calf numbers smaller but expected with being so late in the season but trade remained firm. Angus/Hereford cross calves sold from €130 up to €270. Continental cross calves sold from €220 up to €490. Good number of reared Friesian calves and these made from €200 to €270.
