'Here’s hoping an acceptable resolution can be achieved in the dispute between Beef Plan and factories'

With some 500 lots presented for sale, trade was sharper than previous weeks at Kilkenny Mart on Thursday (August 8th), according to George Candler – the mart’s auctioneer.

He noted that heifers met a steady trade, with the exception of plainer-types, as these were more difficult to sell.

“Cull cow numbers were small, but customers were anxious to secure finished and feeding animals.”

“Here’s hoping an acceptable resolution can be achieved in the ongoing dispute between Beef Plan farmers and factories.”

“Bully-boy tactics from either side will only lead to more animosity. Perhaps an honest broker needs to step forward!” Candler concluded.
