Some 1,300 entries went under the hammer at Kilkenny Mart on Thursday (October 8tH), according to George Candler.

The mart’s auctioneer reported that while beef-types met a “good” trade, plainer lots were difficult to sell, especially those with dairy-influence.

He reported a “good lively” trade for continentals, especially quality lots in both the bullock and heifer ring.

“The heifer trade somewhat subdued except for the top-quality lots. Cull cows met a steady trade with prices similar to last week.”

“The biggest sale of the autumn so far. A lively trade for beef and forward stores both ringside and online.” the auctioneer added.

Bullocks:
  • 600+ – €1.70-€2.30/kg or €950-€1,700/head;
  • 500-600kgs – €1.50-€2.45/kg or €780-€1,380/head;
  • 400-500kgs – €1.40-€2.53/kg or €580-€1,250/head;
  • <400kgs – €1.50-€2.85/kg or €450-€1,070/head.
Heifers:
  • Beef-types – €1.80-€2.30/kg or €980-€1,320/head;
  • Forward stores – €1.80-€2.45/kg or €780-€1,190/head;
  • Light stores – €1.40-€2.35/kg or €350-€920/head.
