You are expected to help a farmer when they experience an issue with their phone; purchasers always ‘borrow’ your biro and you’re called ‘the youngster’ ‘school-goer’ or ‘whizz kid’.

  • You’re called ‘the youngster’ ‘school-goer’ or ‘whizz kid’;
  • Older mart attendees stand in front of you and block your view of the ring;
  • People skip the queue in the mart office and canteen which means that you’re always pushed to the back of the line;
  • You are never asked to comment on the standard or price of an animal;
  • Purchasers always ‘borrow’ your biro and promise to return it but that never happens;
  • You are sent to the canteen to buy bottles of water and snacks for the ringside regulars;
  • You are expected to help a farmer when they experience an issue with their phone;
  • You are often asked to check the weather and beef prices online;
  • The odd farmer throws you €5-€10 for giving them a helping hand. Family friends that you haven’t met in a while may give you a few bob to ‘buy a mineral in the canteen’.
