Dairy culls ‘out of the parlour’ a harder sell at Kanturk

Kanturk Mart report – cattle prices – 12-10-2921

According to a spokesperson, over 1,000 entries were on offer at Kanturk Mart’s cattle sale on Tuesday, October 12th, 2021.

They reported that 98% of all cattle that went under the hammer found new homes.

Speaking following the sale, the spokesperson said: “Kanturk Mart was bustling again.”

“Prices were the same as last week except for older cows out of the parlour and in poor condition. These proved harder to sell.”
