Trade was a shade easier at Kilrush Mart on Wednesday (September 16th), according to a spokesperson who reported a “good-sized” entry at its annual weanling show and sale.

“The heifer weanlings met a very solid trade, but some lovely stock in the heifer ring.”

“There were a number of cull cows on offer also and these were a very fine trade. Despite trade being a shade tougher, average price up €50 on last year’s sale.” the spokesperson concluded.
