Turnover just under €1.25m at Kilkenny Mart’s cattle sale

Kilkenny Mart report – cattle prices – 16-09-2021

According to George Candler, some 1,250 entries went under the hammer at Kilkenny Mart on Thursday, September 16th, 2021.

The mart’s auctioneer reported that quality, beef-types and forward stores “sold well”. However, plainer-type lots were “more difficult to sell”.

“Beef and forward store bullocks and heifers met a good trade. The sale recorded a turnover of just shy of €1 and a quarter million.”
