Heifers back €20-€40/hd at Kilkenny Mart

Kilkenny Mart – cattle prices – 07-10-2021

According to George Candler, Kilkenny Mart held its largest sale of the year on Thursday, October 7th, 2021.

The mart’s auctioneer reported that some 1,300 lots were on offer at its weekly cattle sale.

Speaking following the sale, he said: “Quality was not as good as other weeks. Heifer prices were down €20-€40/head compared to last week’s returns.”

“Some plainer-type bullocks were also more difficult to sell,” Candler remarked.
