Plainer stores a ‘harder’ sell at Kilkenny Mart – Candler

Kilkenny Mart – Cattle Prices – 08-09-2022

According to George Candler, some 1,300 lots crossed the scales at Kilkenny Mart on Thursday, September 8th, 2022.

The mart’s auctioneer reported that quality lots met with a steady trade, while plainer, store cattle were “more difficult to sell”.

Meanwhile, quality beef and forward store cattle met with a “solid” trade, while he said that heifer purchasers were “more selective”.
