Mart Price Tracker

Seeing as there is a Beef Price Tracker thread would there be any interest in a similar thread for prices in the ring.Lads buying or selling might be able to give prices they got or gave for stock.

Sure would be useful, there is a fairly hopeless system, think it's on a site called farm_ watch or something, but it's a bit of a cod..

There's one in the back of The Farmers Journal, but you probably know that already.

It would be good to see pictures of the animals if people do decide to put up prices.

Too late with regards the pictures as I just sold them this evening.
Red limx heifer born late mar'14 weighting 410kgs - €1,230
Red limx heifer born late jul'14 weighting 210kgs - €680

The mother of the second one will be blood tested on Saturday and hopefully sold within a fortnight, no milk and annually produces a **** calf.

S#it calf in case anyone is confused !!!!

Depending on their quality they would be making about €720 - €800+ around here at the mart I'd say. My father bought a bunch of 5 privately recently and gave €760 each for them.

Nice prices....any idea what lighter chx/lim were making? Around 250 to 300kg. I have 16 got but looking to get 9 more for this year.

Conseng is fairly on the ball price wise, for once there seemed to be no price difference between the black and red lim, which makes a change
Given current prices am I correct in assuming cattle are or will be scarce or is there something else at play. While I was at mart there was very little farmer buyers

If you like a nice quality story bull calf you'll probably have to pay 850-950euro. If ya go for a lesser quality you'd be talking 780-850, big money for small stock

Thanks, that sounds right, I got 16 lesser quality ones a month ago for €800. They done well and lads are saying I would get €900 for them now. Next Oct/Nov will tell the tale though. Hopefully it holds up for all concerned and be a great year for beef.

That's the problem. Lighter stock gets bigger per kg price. More weight at back end may not push up the price as much as you'd expect. Also more lads buying grass cattle at this time of year. Lads that farm from March to November always look for the type that is that bit thinner than finishers look for to make full use of grass. The animal that trived in the shed may go back a bit on grass.

If they are the right colour make of animal anywhere up to a grand. Crazy money at the moment. If not "farmers" spec then 100 to 150 less. Saw an orange chx 295kg make 1020 if an off white half brother of his went in after you'd have tumble weed blowing across the ring. All that matters is the dw at end if the day.

Thanks, I am happy with what I got so far and price I gave so may hold off for a few weeks or see what comes up.
