"Dairy-influenced animals were more difficult to sell. Trade was slightly easier for plainer cattle" - George Candler

Some 1,350 cattle went under the hammer at Kilkenny Mart on Thursday (October 25th), according to George Candler.

The mart's auctioneer said that demand remained strongest for suckler-bred bullocks and heifers, with these types ranging from €2.20-€2.80/kg.

He said that trade was slightly easier for plainer entries, noting that dairy influenced animals were more difficult to sell, with short-keep cattle the most sought after.
