Some 1,200 entries were offered for sale at the mart

Kilkenny Mart’s general cattle sale – which was held on Thursday, October 31st – attracted some 1,200 entries, according to George Candler.

The mart’s auctioneer noted that trade was sharper for most lots; he stressed that out-of-spec cattle, especially heavy-types, were difficult to sell.

“Cull cow prices also came under pressure – perhaps, the factory quotes for these may well be reduced next week.” Candler said.
