High numbers of stores were presented for sale at the general cattle sale in Granard on Wednesday, with prices led by lighter stock.

Stores weighing under 400kg recorded the highest average sale price at €2.39/kg.

Prices generally dropped in line as weight increased, with the average price for cattle of 600kg-plus dropping just below the €2/kg mark.
