A bigger entry of calves/runners went under the hammer at Kilkenny Mart on Monday, July 13th, according to George Candler.

The mart’s auctioneer reported a good trade for all lots with a top call of €470 recorded for a Belgian Blue heifer.

“The trade was helped by the presence of farmers, exporters and a few north of Ireland buyers.”

The extension of compulsory TB testing from 6 weeks to 120 days is helping to flush out more calves. Buyers still remaining active as we enter mid-July.” Candler added.
