Stamps from marts; an old farm jeep; livestock tags & needles – see the full list here.

Stamps from marts; an old farm jeep; livestock tags & needles – see the full list compiled by That’s Farming’s Catherina Cunnane below.

  1. Mountains of paperwork and ‘blue cards’!

With all those mart and private purchases and sales comes a hell of a lot of paperwork!

  1. An old farm jeep!

One that sits in the yard all day until you take it for a spin around the land.

  1. Livestock tags and needles!

Pre-sale preparation is paramount.

  1. Cattle stamps from marts!

We have heard that some have started a collection at this stage.

  1. A trailer

Lorries; trailers; jeeps – the whole job lot!

  1. Chelsea boots & a quilted jacket!

You could just find the mart attire hanging off a wall beside the chute.

  1. A collection of tools.

A hammer; scissors; screwdrivers – everything under the sun in fear of an emergency.

  1. A biro and notebook.

With tag numbers of all your stock and the phone numbers of all your clients.
