It was a rob; I must get a print-out; that buyer was flying for stock; those Charolais calves were on fire! – Check Catherina’s full list here.

Common expressions overheard in the office of a mart- Catherina takes a humorous look at some of those words spoken by mart maniacs!

  1. ‘It was a ‘rob’ today – The likes of it was never seen before.
  2. ‘Is there a calf registered to her? ; I must get her checked on the computer! – A calf registered to a heifer-type beast puts the fear of God into you, especially when you know that you could attain over €4.05/kg in the factory for her instead of taking cow price.
  3. I must get a print-out. I haven’t a clue how many I have today; I just kept the hand flying.’ – I hope you’re the double-decker ordered, with big numbers like that!
  4. ‘What lot number are they at in ring three now? There is a nice cow & calf pairing there; I wouldn’t mind putting her into €1,600.’ - All in the bid of hoping to acquire good value.
  5. ‘Those golden Charolais calves were on fire. The farmers are gone cracked for them.’ – The ‘ring’ leader as they say.
  6. ‘The buyer was fairly keeping the trade up today. They sure know how to push cattle over the bar.’ – The words of a guilty party who was in the centre of a heated polling war.
  7. I thought that I would get a score (€20) more for her’. – Should have asked the auctioneer to ‘divide it’.
  8. ‘He has a fair pen of stock now. I just spotted them out there in a pen and jaysus, they are a lot better than I thought’. – We suppose you could have put another pony to them at least.
  9. ‘Ah sure they are only agents, they don’t have to pay a penny, only claim their day’s commission and pop them in a brown envelope.’ - The words of a guilty party who was in the centre of a heated polling war. We will say no more; just don’t break a sweat.
  10. If that beast was in another mart the other night, she would have made another €100 more’. –You’re a pro!
