“If the weather becomes milder and grass growth improves, it should steady the trade for all types” – Candler

Some 1,200 lots passed through the ring at Kilkenny Mart on Thursday (April 11th), according to George Candler – Manager.

He noted that the bullock trade remained steady with the exception of plain-types.

“Top-quality heifers sold well, while the lesser-types were more difficult to get away.”

“The lack of grass due to night frost is curtailing some potential buyers.”

“If the weather becomes milder and grass growth improves, it should steady the trade for all types.”
