Auc­tion­eer Jim Bushe con­tin­ues to mar­vel at the lure of the dairy sec­tor. “Our Pre­mier Dairy sale had a very big en­try, a ro­bust trade and a 100pc clear­ance.”This, from a mart’s per­spec­tive is about as good as it gets. Freshly calved heifers sold from €1,350-1,850/hd with top class, freshly calved pedi­gree heifers mak­ing from €1,800-2,250/hd, while non-pedi­gree in-calf heifers were very re­spectable with prices from €1,400-1,800/hd. Sec­ond and third calved cows sold from 1,400-1,920/ hd.
