I'd say they will get a load of calls on that ad and just say they are sold BUT they have other more expensive calves...

Being honest, that's what the best of them are worth to anyone buying them to try and make a few job.

The thing is if that's all that's paid for square fr, lads won't breed the square fr anymore. The advantages to breeding such stock was always the bull calf and cull cow price. If that disappears you're better off breeding jersey.

Not saying these were square fr but you know what I mean.
The add just seems a cynical ploy by Wicklow cattle company to drag down the market and get cheaper calves for themselves. They shot themselves in the foot by putting their name to it. Although they will get new buying customers from this add.

They may be calves out of several bunches that were unsuitable for export. They may be some with jex on the card and because they are young are only hassle on a yard like that
