While 2022 will be remembered as a year of record factory prices for cattle, combined with record input costs, the factory leagues also show a record price difference of €308 when comparing the €5.05/kg paid by Dunleavy Meats for a 360kg P+3= young bull compared with the €4.21/kg paid by the Dawn Charleville factory.

It is also almost €200 per head better for the best-grading U=3= young bull.
