    What is difference between normal TB test and export TB test? I thought it was all the one.

    I think its a test. It used to be a 30 day test for Northern ireland, but I think that has changed

    Hard to know. They have bought several different types over the year from suckler bred to dairy bred. It doesn't matter too much. If they can get that kind of numbers out of the system, then it will help beef prices.

    Last couple of years for the Turkish trade, they have bought continental weanlings only and only coloured cattle, no blacks limousins even. Usually charolais, limousin and simmental only with a max weight for a batch of 350kg, lower at times. I have sold heifers and bulls to this trade in the past.

    All well and good to announce it but will it come to anything. Currency fluctuations could easily screw it up and will the economics stack up based on current weanling prices :undecided:

    I remain sceptical.

    Saw that myself, absolute madness, but sure once people are happy that is the main thing.

    Sure all cattle make that sort of money up here..... do ye not get them sort of prices down there ? :whistle::whistle::whistle:

    Winter Fair used to be a big event in Carrick on Shannon before they started having them in every other mart in the country. A neighbor of ours had a "wonder calf" back at the time of the second year of the sales. (You'd wonder where she came from). A fantastic looking BB heifer calf. All of the right shapes etc. He sold her for €5500 at the time. She was bought by a big builder and nobody ever heard anything from her again at the shows or the sales. Speaking years after it, he reckons that yer man was just burying money for tax because it was in the height of the boom in 2006.

    Several lads asked him if they could see the cow, but he wouldn't let anyone in. I saw her across the hedge - she was as brown as a mouse.

    In general, with farming the way it is currently, and the exodus from suckling, what do people think will be the the value of reasonable quality continental spring calving suckler cows this autumn / winter? Talking about cows calving January, February and March in calf to a continental bull, aged from min 3 to say max 10 years. No calves at foot included, I am talking about cows scanned in calf that have been fully weaned.

    Were you not in the box to sell him and correct the auctioneer yourself?

    Sounds very odd thing to happen. It would be pretty clear from looking if it was a bull or Bullock, who the auctioneer was trying to fool is another matter.

    Auctioneers with friends dont last around for long thankfully.

    Any chance that mart is a big new mart in the centre of the south? No need to go mentioning names.

    I know very little about the price of cows, but have studied the price of grain in detail for many years and if I has able to know what price grain will be in a few months time I would be earning a multi million salary or be a billionaire.
    The question you asked is pretty much impossible to answer, what is going to happen re Brexit, what is going to happen re Covid and what is going to happen re US-UK trade talks?
    There are too many variables in meat trade at the moment for most people to even dream about the answer to your question.
    Sorry I am no help, just an impossible question to answer.
