Irish Independent - Farming - - BEEF RINGSIDE -

A steady trade saw Aberdeen Angus heifers from 380-420kg sell­ing for up to €1.95/kg, with 356kg Charo­lais mak­ing €2.58/kg. Non qual­ity-as­sured 700kg Friesian bul­locks went for €1.60/kg. On the is­sue of farm­ers mak­ing it their busi­ness to be qual­ity-as­sured, mart man­ager David White said: “A non qual­ity-as­sured an­i­mal typ­i­cally makes from €40-50/hd less. If the mar­ket says you take the laces out of your shoes, you take the laces out of your shoes”.
