Last week’s sale at Clogher mart saw an entry of over 800 cattle meet with steady demand.

Quality lots continue to be met with the strongest demand, while plainer lots were a harder sell. Fat cows and heifers sold to a top price of £1.78/kg for a quality 690kg Blonde d’Aquataine. The top 20 fat cows sold at an average price of £1.44/kg. Other quality lots sold from £1.20/kg to £1.32/kg while second quality types made from £1.02/kg to £1.18/kg. Friesians sold from £0.52/kg to £1.07/kg depending on quality.
