“The rain of the past few days has stimulated grass growth which has encouraged more farmers buyers to secure stock.”

Quality cattle increased by €40-€100/head at Kilkenny Mart on Thursday (June 6th), according to George Candler.

He reported a sharper trade for all lots, noting that quality heifers met with strong demand, while cull cows met a solid trade, with up to €2/kg recorded for quality lots.

“A smaller sale of cattle – 540 lots - but trade showed a remarkable lift especially for bullocks.”

“The rain of the past few days has stimulated grass growth which has encouraged more farmers buyers to secure stock.”

“We are still no further to finding out what sort of Brexit will be implemented and what impact it will have on the beef trade.” he concluded.
