Trade ‘somewhat’ sharper at Kilkenny – Candler

Kilkenny Mart – Cattle Prices – 01-09-2022

According to George Candler, just under 1,000 lots passed through the rings at Kilkenny Mart on Thursday, September 1st, 2022.

The mart’s auctioneer reported that trade was “somewhat sharper than last week even, allowing for a lack of grass growth”.

“All in all, there was a much better yard of cattle compared to last week.”

“Top quality beef bullocks ranged from €2.65-€3.20/kg with quality store bullocks to a top of €3.25/kg. Cull cows remained a steady trade,” Candler added.
