IN THE KNOW
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.
