The data on the ringside tables this week clearly shows that mart averages continue to fall across all categories as buyers adjust further to factory price pulls that started in early June.

The axe has fallen most heavily, and understandably, at the beef end of the trade, with the overall reduction in the average price of your 600kg+ bullock last week coming in at 13c/kg or €78/hd, while your 600kg+ heifer recorded a fall of 10c/kg or €60/hd.
