Local Butchers, Factory Agents, Exporters and Breeders make Christmas Shows a great success at Raphoe Livestock Mart

The annual Christmas Shows and sales were held on Friday 4th December and Monday 7th December under the new regulations regarding Covid-19 for Level 3. There was a keen interest in all stock at both sales with the support of local butchers, factory agents, exporters, breeders and online bidding also contributing to the shows’ success. We would like to acknowledge everyone who supported the sales, exhibitors and purchasers and our judges on their professionalism and all who gave donations on the day amounting to €700 which will be divided among the Donegal Hospice and Foyle Hospice. We would like to thank everyone for their generosity.

We appreciated everyone’s patience and understanding under the rules and regulations regarding our shows this year under the instructions of the Department of Agriculture in the interest of safety and well-being of the public during this pandemic. 2021 will mark a milestone for Raphoe Livestock Mart as we will celebrate 60 years in business. We trust it will be a better and brighter year for everyone. May we take this opportunity to thank all our customers who have supported our sales throughout this very difficult year. We wish everyone good health, happiness and prosperity as we face into 2021.
