    Havent heard that‍♂️, maybe its local price back 10c, as you were well ahead of the market. Those crowd bought hard and overpriced in the marts around here over the last week so they are just balancing the book. Have a good few cattle to roll this week, wasnt any mention of a lower price.

    Maybe in parts of the country, booking a week in advance around here and full kills each day. From watching the department price tables, they dont seem to be paying either:sad:

    Are they terrible bad buyers or wankers to deal with if the locals dont deal with them. They probably have 2 artics of overpriced cattle bought in marts down here over last few days for Tuesdays kill. Surely over the last week they should be able to muster up another 150 cattle for Tuesdays kill from lads just phoning up to sell cattle over the last week.

    I have dealt with others and I wasn't happy.
    In fairness, they don't have a big area. They have a fairly big factory not too far from them.

    Grass growth is fantastic of late and lads aren't under pressure to move on cattle. I'd say factories are finding supplies aren't where they would usually expect them to be as a result if grass growth.

    Screenshot_20200731-113801_Chrome.jpg the Cow in picture is the next lot . Price and details are for a big yellow charlaoiis cow. Top quality and very fat. What would she need to make per kg to come into that in factory.

    Throw another €60 of costs on her, 3.90 would get her out of trouble. Assume a factory bought her

    The 30 month rule and the wet wet weather really work in favour of factories ,at least there is no strike this year it is not as if there is a shortage of grass

    There has to be a lot of cattle gone through compared to other years. Marts around the country have had big numbers all summer when most would normally have no more than a handful at that time of year. Mostly heavier cattle through them too because lads were able to get better prices than bringing them to the factory. Loads of heavy cattle went north too. Mart and factory prices have come into line over the last 2 weeks.

    Looking at online marts this last week and cows are not as strong as they have been. Certainly back €50 to €100 with the ones that I saw. The odd exceptional one making big money and showboated on the media platform bit the general run of a continental cow is €2 per kg or less over the last 7 days. Have a few to sell here tomorrow so will give you an update then.

    Prices for heavy stores well back at marts in last 10 days, more in line with current factory quotes now than what they were a few weeks back. I would say numbers will be tight this autumn but I will probably be wrong.

    Havent seen it yet down here, cattle are actually dearer than they were a month ago and have very false weights from eating wet grass. Looking at standing cattle yesterday, and when they went on the scales they were 40 kgs heavier than their true weight in my eyes

    Middle of the road forward stores bullocks or heifers well back around here. I regret to report.
    Sold a few on Monday and again on Wednesday. Back 20 - 30 cents a kilo.
    I'm going to stall for a while, between poor prices and having to wear masks, I've had enough.
    It might settle, who knows.
