Farmers, agents and feedlot buyers competed.

There was a large entry of cattle at Raphoe Mart on Thursday (October 10th), according to Ann Harkin – manager.

She noted that quality in-spec cattle met a “brisk trade” with farmers, agents and feedlot purchasing all making their presence felt at the ringside.

“In particular, Aberdeen-Angus-cross cattle were in high demand among farmers at the sale. Plainer cattle remained more difficult to sell.”
