While we saw a good honest trade for the heavier type hfrs with many feeders around the ring selling in the region from €2 up to €2.50 per kg with the good well made CH and LM from €2.30 to €2.55 per kg. While we saw the lighter shapely type heifers well bred type cattle selling from €2.20 up to €2.60 per kg with the plainer type heifers meeting a more difficult trade selling from €1.90 up to €2.30 per kg.
