‘Vibrant’ trade for bullocks, heifers, and cull cows at Kilkenny

Kilkenny Mart – cattle prices – 20-01-2022

According to George Candler, Kilkenny Mart held a “somewhat smaller” sale of 800 lots on Thursday, January 20th, 2022.

The mart’s auctioneer reported that all lots – bullocks, heifers, and cull cows – met a “vibrant” trade.

“Lots of buyers were anxious to secure stock. Overall, there was a short supply of beef bullocks and heifers.”

“Cull cows and heifers reported a 100% clearance, with a 98% clearance in the bullock ring,” the auctioneer added.
