Tullow mart report Weanling Show and Sale Males Saturday 21st September 2019
With over 300 head on offer at our bull weanling show & sale trade opened to a lively farmer trade with a very strong export demand noticed for the lighter type bull weanlings of the continental type.
Bulls over 480kg sold today from €2 per kg up to €2.20 per kg and a very lively demand for those well presented young aged heavy bulls of the R & U grade type.
Bulls north of 400kg again a steady farmer trade here with the plainer types selling from €2 per kg while the majority of those more shapely R & U type bulls selling from €2.20 per kg and up to €2.80 per kg got for some U grade blue types.
The lighter calves a very brisk trade due to the lively export demand and they selling today from €2.30 per kg upwards to €2.90 and even some pushing up to the €3 per kg for those R and U grade BB types.
Overall a steady trade amongst and unsettled time in the beef sector which could only suggest farmers continue to show positive mantra for the beef trade going forward and this was recognised around the ring.
