Northern buyers on the hunt for calves at Kilkenny

Kilkenny Mart’s calf sale attracted over 100 entries on Monday (July 6th), according to George Candler.

The mart’s auctioneer reported a smaller entry with a full clearance. The sale-topper came in the form of an early March-born calf at €535.

“The presence of farmers, exporters, plus north of Ireland buyers, resulted in an excellent trade,” Candler explained.

Summary:

  • 1st-rate Friesian bulls – €80-€170/head;
  • 2nd-rate Friesian bulls – €40-€90/head;
  • Continental bulls – €200-€530/head;
  • Continental heifers – €200-€530/head;
  • Angus and Hereford bulls – €130-€385/head;
  • Angus and Hereford heifers – €120-€300/head.
