There was a strong demand for Hereford calves in Bandon mart again this week.
Herefords appeared as good sellers all round with Hereford bull calves earning between €235 upto as high as €405 per head.
Hereford heifer calves were sold for between €200 and €390 – the same as last week’s heifer calf prices.
Tommy Moyles, speaking on behalf of the Irish Farmers Journal said that “the move online has shaken up the trade abit” and is adding to the surge in prices when compared to this time last year.
Hereford calves are making €40/head more than what was earned at the corresponding sale last January.
