"Many farmers have now almost filled their quota for buying cattle this year, so if numbers remain big, prices may start coming under pressure” - Candler

Another 1,300 cattle passed through the ring at Kilkenny Mart on Thursday (November 1st), with Continental forward store bullocks and heifers remaining the most sought after, according to George Candler.

The mart's auctioneer said that the sale comprised of 135 sellers and 120 Buyers from 10 different counties.

"The bulk of the better continentals ranged from €2.15 to €2.50/kg and any price in excess of these prices, was the exception rather than the rule."

Mr. Candler said that light store bullocks and heifers originating from the dairy herd ranged from €1.30 to €1.70/kg - "returns which would not create great excitement", George Candler believes.

"Many farmers have now almost filled their quota for buying cattle this year, so if numbers remain big, prices may start coming under pressure," George added.
