Sale rings ‘attracting more sellers who would normally go directly to the factory’

Kilkenny Mart – cattle prices – 15-07-2021

According to George Candler, sales exceeded the €1 million barrier for the third consecutive week at Kilkenny Mart on Thursday, July 15th, 2021.

He reported that a slightly smaller entry, comprising some 1,040 lots, went under the hammer.

“Beef and forward store bullocks and heifers still met an excellent trade. The good sales ring prices are attracting more sellers who would normally go directly to the factory.”

“The fact they know exactly what price they have secured is beneficial and are not at the mercy of deduction, e.g., non-QA, overage.”

“Trade continues strong for quality beef and store bullock and heifers, but lighter, Hereford heifers and plainer Friesian bullocks are more difficult to sell.”
