Stamps from marts; an old farm jeep; livestock tags & needles – see the full list compiled by That’s Farming’s Catherina Cunnane below.
- Mountains of paperwork and ‘blue cards’!
With all those mart and private purchases and sales comes a hell of a lot of paperwork!
- An old farm jeep!
One that sits in the yard all day until you take it for a spin around the land.
- Livestock tags and needles!
Pre-sale preparation is paramount.
- Cattle stamps from marts!
We have heard that some have started a collection at this stage.
- A trailer
Lorries; trailers; jeeps – the whole job lot!
- Chelsea boots & a quilted jacket!
You could just find the mart attire hanging off a wall beside the chute.
- A collection of tools.
A hammer; scissors; screwdrivers – everything under the sun in fear of an emergency.
- A biro and notebook.
With tag numbers of all your stock and the phone numbers of all your clients.
