05/09/2019 - Raphoe Cattle Mart Report

There was a large show of cattle at Raphoe Mart

this week .  Consistent wet weather has forced

numbers out again.  Trade has improved for quality

in-spec continental cattle.  These are what most

buyers are looking for leaving plainer lots and

out of spec cattle harder to sell. Heifers sold to 

€880 over the weight and Bulls/Bullocks sold up

to €970 over.

Bulls sold from €1.70/kg to €2.20/kg

Bullocks sold from €1.80/kg to €2.30/kg

Heifers sold from €1.90/kg to €2.40/kg

Fat cows sold from €475/head to €1565/head


Top class bulls over 600 kgs - €480 to €970 over

Beef bullocks - €480 to €800 over

Store bullocks - €300 to €650 over

Beef heifers - €450 to €880 over

Store heifers - €300 to €610 over

Dry cows - €475 to €1565 each
