Kilkenny: Cull cows to €2,780 and bullocks to €2,700 as turnover reaches over €1m

Kilkenny Mart – Cattle Prices – 25-05-2022

According to George Candler, some 900 lots passed through the ring at Kilkenny Mart on Thursday, May 25th, 2022.

The mart’s auctioneer reported that beef bullocks and heifers were “still in demand” with bullocks to €2,700, heifers to €2,660 and cull cows to €2,780.

However, he did note that, all in all, plainer cattle were “a bit more difficult to sell”.

“Turnover exceeded €1m, which has happened on thirteen occasions in 2022,” the livestock auctioneer noted.
