Tuesday’s sale at Fermoy Mart saw another firm cattle trade. Mart manager Sean Leahy said supply of cattle is on par with last year, but the trade is holding more firm. All forward feeding cattle continue to be a strong trade, as do cull cows.

Angus cattle are still being met with strong demand. Prices are ranging mainly from €2.00/kg to €2.10/kg for all good-quality stores over 500kg. Sean said lighter types around 400kg are still making up to €2.20/kg where the quality of those on offer is good.
