More than 1,800 finished continental bulls were loaded in Waterford Port this week and are on the way to Turkey.

The shipment loaded by live export company Purcell Brothers was made up of continental-type bulls weighing up to 650kg. This contract was separate from Purcell Brothers’ ongoing contract to supply 20,000 young feeder type bulls to this market. The firm has to-date sent three loads of feeder bulls to Turkey.
