Manager’s report…Maura Quigley, Roscommon Mart

“The recent wet conditions are having an impact on stock coming through the sales while quality lots of heifers achieved good prices, plainer lots are a bit more difficult to sell. Prices ranged from €2.28 per kilo up to a high €2.97 per kilo. 

  “There were smaller numbers of bullocks on offer due to the large sale the previous week and the big entry for Friday next. Prices ranged from €2.15 per kilo up to €2.72 per kilo with a very good clearance of lots with only one lot unsold.

  “A total of 73 dry cows was presented for sale with all lots sold. Prices averaged from €1.64 per kilo up to €2.08 per kilo.

  “There was a great turnout at the show and sale of weanlings last Tuesday (17th) with a brisk trade for bulls with prices averaging from €2.66 per kilo up to €3.85 per kilo. There was a lively trade for weanling heifers with average prices ranging from €2.61 per kilo up to €5.28 per kilo for a Lim X heifer weighing 265 kgs and fetching €1400. There was a good demand for the special entry of ten cows with strong calves at foot with lots making from €1820 up to €2280.

  “There will be a special sale of bullocks tomorrow (Friday 20th) with 95 pens on offer. There will also be a special sale of breeding heifers with 48 pens on offer. Sales commence at 11 am.”

  “Runners made from €300 to €500 for Hereford cross and Angus types with continental types making up to €700.

  “There were also 300 bullocks on offer last Monday week (9th) with trade and prices improved with a better showing of quality store, prices ranged from €350 to €920 over and an average of €571 over paid.

  “Sales continue at Castlerea Mart today (Thursday 19th) with our usual sale of heifers, cows, calves, runners and weanlings. All sales commence at 11 am.”
