“A somewhat bigger sale of cattle compared to last week; quality continentals remained a solid trade,"

Some 750 lots were presented for sale at Kilkenny Mart on Thursday (May 30th), according to George Candler – the mart’s auctioneer.

“A somewhat bigger sale of cattle compared to last week with trade remaining steady.”
