Last week’s cattle prices

According to George Candler, some 700 lots went under the hammer at Kilkenny Mart on Thursday, November 18th, 2021.

The mart’s auctioneer reported that a “good, solid” trade prevailed for quality lots at its general cattle sale.

Speaking following the sale, Candler said:

“Heifers met a sharper trade compared to last week with a 99% clearance. Bullocks also sold well, with a 96% clearance.”

“Beef bullocks and heifers were in short supply as were light continental bullocks and heifers (320-390kgs)”

“The cull cow ring lacked the quality of other weeks, with many animals just out of the parlour,” Candler added.
