Poll: Should marts re-open?

A recent survey by Herdwatch has revealed the true impact of the restrictions currently imposed on marts in the fight against COVID-19.

The survey of 1,100 farmers revealed that 78% of farmers are dependent on marts to sell cattle and 59% use marts to buy cattle.

It provided additional insight into selling trends in that 94% of farmers sell animals multiple times per year and 1 in 4 sell animals every other month or less.
