Noel Corcoran, auctioneer at Kanturk Mart reported a throughput of 565 cattle which met with a very good clearance rate. He said that prices held very well for the time of the year and noted that many in the farming sector are giving priority to hay and silage as against mart attendance.

The forward store bullock and heifer remain the most sought-after animal but the smaller store has taken an uptake price hike since the emergence of grass and all stock a very much in demand, according to Noel Corcoran.
