“The changeable weather conditions are restricting some potential buyers from operating” – Candler

1,580 cattle were offered for sale at Kilkenny Mart on Thursday (April 4th), according to George Candler – the mart’s auctioneer.

“A somewhat less buoyant trade compared to previous weeks with customers less plentiful.”

“The changeable weather conditions are restricting some potential buyers from operating.”
