Thursday, March 3rd saw some 560 calves pass through the ring at Kilkenny Mart, according to George Candler.

He noted that Friesian bulls met with a firmer trade, as shippers showed more interest due to the resumption of live exports, following the recent adverse weather conditions.

“Farmer buyers very anxious to secure continental calves.” Candler said. 


  • 1st-rate Friesian bulls – €60-€160/head;
  • 2nd-rate Friesian bulls – €10-€50/head;
