Expressions you will not hear at a mart

‘I got too much for my cull cow’; ‘I am only going to stay for five minutes’ and ‘I am delighted that the sale is not going ahead next week’.

  1. I got too much for my cull cow.

Some farmers are never happy, even with €2.30/kg!

  1. I am delighted that the sale is not going ahead next week.

‘No sale next week’ are four words that mart fanatics do not want to hear.

  1. A drop of tea wouldn’t even quench the thirst.

Said no member of the farming community ever.

  1. I am only going to stay for five minutes and then I’m going to hit the road.

When ‘five minutes’ means five hours…

  1. You would be better off at home on a day like this.

Some days..only some days, especially when the selling trade hits rock bottom.

  1. I am in the company of strangers.

Everyone knows everyone so you won’t be stuck for someone to talk to.
