“Plain bullocks out of the dairy herd under 380kgs are still the most difficult to sell. In the heifer ring, heavy heifers were in short supply” - Candler - Kilkenny Mart.

Some 1,200 cattle went under the hammer at Kilkenny Mart on Thursday (October 4th).

There was a solid trade for a yard of exceptional quality cattle, with a big divide in the prices between quality continentals and plain types with dairy influence, according to the mart’s auctioneer George Candler.

Customers were anxious for beef-type animals forward stores, George added.

“Plain bullocks out of the dairy herd under 380kgs are still the most difficult to sell. In the heifer ring, heavy heifers were in short supply with only 1 animal in excess of 600kgs.” George Candler commented.
