€1,400 champion spring-born BB weanling bull tops Kanturk’s sale

Kanturk Mart – Cattle Prices – 04-10-2022

According to Michael Scanlon, just over 700 lots – including 335 weanlings – crossed the scales at Kanturk Mart on Tuesday, October 4th, 2022.

The mart held its spring-born show and sale, sponsored by Southern Milling, in conjunction with its usual weekly cattle sale.

The mart spokesperson reported a “very big turnout of cattle with an outstanding trade for all animals”.

The supreme champion came in the form of a 412kg Belgian Blue male, property of David Murphy, Banteer, at €1400.

The reserve champion, a Limousin male weighing 410kg and owned by Conor Ring, Freemount, changed hands for €1290.

Scanlon explained: “Another milestone at the sale was that we had our very first all-female judging panel with Margaret Lehane and Bobby Cotter doing an outstanding job.”
