'A bigger sale of cattle with a definite trend developing' - Candler

860 entries went under the hammer at Kilkenny Mart on Thursday (September 12th), according to George Candler – auctioneer.

“A bigger sale of cattle with a definite trend developing – trade challenging except for top-quality animals.”

“Top quality cattle in both rings meeting a solid trade but there appears to be fewer customers for the plainer animal,” Candler added.

Bullocks and heifers ranging from 520-640kgs are peaking at €2.10- €2.20/kg, while those weighing 440-500kgs are climbing to €2.50-€2.80/kg – “a good price in the present challenging climate”, according to Candler.

He noted that most Friesian bullocks recorded prices from €1.35-€1.70/kg.

  • 1 SI – 785kg – €1,440;
