Turnover reaches €1m at Kilkenny’s final cattle sale of 2022

Kilkenny Mart – Cattle Prices – 15-12-2022

According to George Candler, circa 900 cattle crossed the scales at Kilkenny Mart’s final sale of 2022 on Thursday, December 15th.

The mart’s auctioneer reported that its most recent general cattle sale generated a turnover of €1 million.

Speaking following the sale, he commented: “Our most recent sale was a big sale, considering it was the last cattle sale of the year.”

“Cull cows accounted for 185 head with a special sale of 45 spring-calving sucklers which saw prices range from €1400 to €1950 per head.”

“Our next cattle sale takes place on Thursday, January 5th, 2023. Happy Christmas to you all, and a healthy and happy 2023. 2022 was an excellent year for Kilkenny Mart,” Candler concluded.
