    The demand for angus cattle seems to be gone way back, was in the mart on Tuesday, angus and Hereford cattle were a very poor trade, even the really beefy type ones, charolais and limousins were way ahead, even for dry cows.

    I thought they were looking for Angus cattle for export at present, seems to be ads on DoneDeal looking for them anyways, thought there would be good demand?

    Why sell cattle at 28 months, buyer will be budgeting 20c QA payment less for them?

    It suits me to sell them now.
    I have a test coming shortly, I'm trying to lighten the load .
    The trade seems quite good, who knows what lies ahead.
    I could do with the money.
    Sold two continental bulls last night as well. I don't see much difference in price even though one of them is obviously very much "out of spec"

    I just find it strange why farmers dont try and market their animal as best as possible. Selling them a 2 weeks ago would have meant they have the potential to collect Qa payment.

    I dont see anything out of spec with those 2 above animals?

    Continental store cattle are making £2.25 or €2.55 for r grade cattle 20 miles up the road and across the border. From what I can see, these buyers don't care about an animal being bord bia approved.

    Will a four month old calf make a pairing with its mother any more valuable than your more typical cow with calf at foot pairing where the calf is a month old ?

    I've too many cattle and would have sold before now only a cow decided to knock me around a bit so delayed plans etc

    Cows in question may or may not be in calf ,four to sell with calves

    Were they bucket reared or suckled bred?

    The CH is out of spec in my eyes, will be 30 months at the end of November and at 542kgs that's 160kgs to put up in 4 months. I'm assuming they are bullocks and that one would want to hit the ground running and then more...

    All my take on it :yes:

    Looking at marts online today, prices for heavy stock are well back. €50 to €80 at least. Younger and lighter stock are holding their own

    Brexit is going nowhere in terms of an agreement, like clockwork, prices will fall back towards year end ,that and the fact covid 19 is far from solved
