The Aubrac cattle society held its annual spring sale in Tuam Mart on Easter Monday, matching last year’s clearances rates with over double the number of cattle forward.

In total, 24 animals were forward – eight bulls and 15 females. Similar to last year, females were met with a strong trade, with only one going home unsold. Averages for females came in at €1,698, up from €1,224 the previous year.
