Interview with David Quinn:

That’s Farming previously interviewed David Quinn, who took over the running and management of Carnew Mart, a family-run business.

Carnew Mart, one of the biggest sheep and cattle marts in Ireland, operates a two-ring system, as he explained:

“In the mid-1990s, the mart had a throughput of 400 head of cattle, calves, and 1,500 sheep. There is no comparison with the numbers we are dealing with now.”
