Continental heifers, in particular Charolais heifers, were in strong demand over the course of a long day of selling at Carrigallen Mart’s annual heifer show and sale last Saturday. Following last week’s heavy rain, numbers at the sale were boosted, with close on 550 heifers passing through the ring.

This February 2020-born Charolais heifer weighed 360kg and sold for €1,100 (€3.08/kg).
