Having made numerous phone calls to factory agents and those close to the trade yesterday and over the weekend, I was left with a myriad of conflicting information, views and opinions.

Despite a number of agents quoting bullocks at €3.65/kg they also went on to say that numbers of finished stock in their areas appeared to have tightened.

The one thing that was clear however was that demand from the processors continues strong with one source telling me that a number of factories last week were reported as having worked Saturday.
