With increased demand, the clearance rates were a little higher than the previous week. The bullock trade was strong, with plenty of bidders for all types. Thin and plain-quality cattle continue to be a weaker trade than better-quality types.

All good Charolais cattle sold well, with most types over 600kg selling from €700 to €800 over the weight, and average-quality types selling from €650 to €750 over. Those from 500kg to 600kg sold mainly from €600 to €700 over the weight for the average bullock, with U grades making up to €800 over.
