Kilkenny Mart – cattle prices – 09-12-2021

According to George Candler, just under 800 lots changed hands at Kilkenny Mart on Thursday, December 9th, 2021.

The mart’s auctioneer reported that entry numbers were similar to the previous week with a “very sharp” trade for store bullocks and heifers.

“Beef bullocks and heifers, which increased number-wise compared to last week, met a flying trade,” he remarked.

“Over 200 cull cows were on offer, with continentals to a high of €2.48/kg.”
