“Trade remarkably firm especially when you consider the present uncertain climate we find ourselves in” Bullocks hit €2.90/kg, heifers topped out at €2.90/kg and cull cows realised €2.04/kg.

Some 880 cattle went under the hammer at Kilkenny Mart on Thursday (February 21st), according to George Candler- auctioneer.

Candler reported a “good solid trade for all types”, with forward-store bullocks peaking at €2.60/kg and lighter-types selling to €2.90/kg, while forward-store heifers hit €2.55/kg and lighter-types realised €2.90/kg.

He noted that quality continentals are attracting the main interest in both the bullock and heifer ring.

Aberdeen-Angus bullocks ranged from €1.65 to €2.20 per kilo with Friesian types ranging from €1.50 to €1.80 per kilo.

“Trade remarkably firm especially when you consider the present uncertain climate we find ourselves in.”
