Cull cows an ‘easier’ trade at Kilkenny – Candler

Kilkenny Mart – Cattle Prices – 03-11-2022

According to George Candler, a “similar-sized” entry of some 1,100 lots crossed the scales at Kilkenny Mart on Thursday, November 3rd, 2022.

The mart’s auctioneer reported that continentals “still met the strongest demand”.

Quality Charolais and Limousin types ranged from €2.65-€3.20/kg in the bullock sector, while heifers buyers forked out up to €3.00/kg for “top-quality” animals.

Candler commented: “Aberdeen Angus bullocks and heifers still sold well but, perhaps, not reaching the dizzy highs of a few weeks ago”

“Friesian bullocks, especially those with British influence, made from €1.85-€2.35/kg with better prices for forward stores and beef type animals.”

“Cull cows met a slightly easier trade, especially Friesians. Many cows at Thursday’s sale showing impacted of prolonged wet weather,” Candler added.
