“Quality cattle are getting scarcer. A good solid trade for forward store bullocks but cattle overage and under-fed were difficult to sell” - George Candler

800 cattle passed through the ring at Kilkenny Mart on Thursday (November 29th) - a similar sale size to the previous week, according to George Candler.

The mart’s auctioneer said that trade for quality lots remained firm, although plainer types proved difficult to re-home.

“Quality cattle are getting scarcer. A good solid trade for forward store bullocks but cattle overage and under-fed were difficult to sell.” George Candler said.

“The slide in the price of cull cows has steadied though plain Friesians especially those lacking flesh are the most difficult to get away. The top quality cull cow met a sharper trade.”
