“The light Friesian bullock and dairy-influenced Aberdeen Angus and Herefords were the hardest to rehome” – Candler

“There was a remarkably good trade considering the present climate” at Kilkenny Mart’s cattle sale on Thursday (March 21st – that’s according to George Candler – the mart’s auctioneer.

He said that quality lots sold very well; quality Continental bullocks ranged from €2.30-€2.96/kg, with a top call of €1,280 recorded for five 375kg Limousins.

“The light Friesian bullock and dairy-influenced Aberdeen Angus and Herefords were the hardest to rehome.”

The bulk of the quality Friesian bullocks sold from €1.60 to €1.85/kg with exceptional types pushing up to €2.00/kg.

In the heifer ring quality continentals fetched from €2.20 to €2.80/kg; a small number of cull cows met a steady trade, the auctioneer added.
