Headford Co-Op Mart Report 23rd April 2022

Sheep prices held strong with quality lambs holding a great price. 50Kgs/€180 per head. €3.60 average /Kg

Strong turn out today on both sides of the ring. Exceptional show-quality in heifer weanlings, ideal for breeding, were flavour of the day. Brisk trade in all categories in Headford today with 450 cattle through the ring.

Special welcome to new auctioneer on the rostrum, Craig Lovett from Cavan. Craig’s flamboyant presence sparked competition on the ringside and provided for some exciting exchanges during day. He was very impressed with the outstanding quality throughout and mentioned the Rahoon bred weanlings in particular – interestingly, same breeder has booked more pens for next week. You have been warned!

Thanks to all the sellers and buyers for their support. Reminder to all sellers to send us your pics and info so we can help you get your best price on the day. WhatsApp 0873339786
