Bring them all to Carnew IMO
Good quality bullocks seem to be a good trade enough
Nice quality 18 month birthday continentals are scarce in enniscorthy and a couple of very good buyers. The pens with the letters mon and the bollix with the quarries checkbook!
What day is Enniscorthy mart?
Sounds like someone has had a bidding war with the man with the cap and green coat!!!
Always found marts slow to get going after Christmas but good cattle like those will whet many appetites.
But like so many things in the beef trade at the moment that could be all turned up in the air as well.
That is out so, for early January, going to Lamma the first week and unavailable the second week.
To be honest with you, I don't think it matters where you go with them. Good quality sucker stock like those are a rare commodity now in the south east so there will be plenty of demand for them IMV.
Well they were sold today, not a good trade, not helped by Fred's sister inlaw being buried today, may she rest in peace.
Whiteheads weighed 668kg and made €1205.
BBxFr weighed 682kg made €1400.
Lmxfr weighed 635kg made €1180.
Best Ch weighed 764kg made €1600.
Happy with all above.
The majority of the rest were OK, but disappointed with the following few.
Ch weighed 704kg made €1380.
Youngest Ch weighed 560kg made 1200.
Shocking trade for calves here this week,only good was an angus bull made £240,my Fleckvieh Bulls were robbed at £80 and £90 .
I think they are becoming more in line.
They're rare round here and nobody has heard of them.
Local mart didn't sell calves Christmas week so there was a backlog,also said fodder shortage was to blame.
I meant as in them prices are more inline with what they should be
Fred's son in law ? was in Roscrea at the heifer fatstock show and sale yesterday.
I sold 8 Lm heifers in the ordinary sale. I didn't go back in to the Mart until 2.30 , and my own cattle weren't sold until after 4 , and there was the guts of an hours selling after that. So I avoided seeing any of the fatstock blowing and showing.
My own heifers.
Red Lm 4/17 505 kg €1280. Red Lm 465 kg 5/17 €1050. 3 x black Lm 2 and 3/17 475 kg €1040. 3 x black Lm 3 and 4 17 441 kg €990.
Prices were better than I had been led to believe they might be.
Probably Fred's nephew, not directly related to the deceased woman, he was in Carnew today, but it can help when Tommy or Fred is there as well.
Very good price there for the Limo.
They were heavier than I thought I must admit.
When I had sheep , this lad came to Roscrea every week. Used to always have a ciggy in hand , i see he has moved onto electric job now. Early to mid 50s ?
His Brother has taken over on the sheep side, I think you are being hard on him under 50, if only just,
That's not too bad of prices. With all of the talk, I had expected prices to be much worse this week. But it appears to have stayed steady from last year.
I was looking at some mart reports online from yesterday and it appeared that a good quality animal was a good price. Hopefully it will remain that way for us until people start buying for grass.
On the other hand I stuck my head into mohill mart yesterday. It was very small. What struck me was the dairy bred calves. 2 ch heifers 400kg and they couldn't open them at €600. Good strong buying for anything suckler bred.
i heard cull cows were a strong trade in carnew saturday?
