A company is seeking 3,500 weanlings for Turkey, while another 1,500 bulls are being sought for Libya.

John Humphries and Castleisland Mart, Co. Kerry are seeking 1,500 bulls weighing between 250kg and 330kg for Heenskerk Company.

The firm has secured a market for 3,500 weanlings which have to be sourced within a month to secure this contract in Turkey.

"Better Prices"

Releasing a statement, Danny Healy-Rae said: “I also welcome a shipment of bulls which is being sought by Purcell Brothers to fulfil a contract in Libya.”

“I welcome these developments which should reflect in better prices for farmers in Kerry and countrywide.”

“I have been raising the need for this in the Dáil for many months and I will continue to ask the Minister to source additional export markets for live cattle and indeed for processed beef.” The TD concluded.
