Loads of ringside competition ensured that there was almost full clearance today. We want to thank everyone for the large turnout today and we look forward to the new Cattle Morning Entry process starting next Saturday 7th May… NO more queueing in the office before penning!
Sheep Auction enjoyed full clearance with top price of €3.42/Kg for hoggets. 100Kg ewe made €190. Increase in sheep numbers is needed for number of buyers coming to Headford, so we advise all farmers considering Headford Mart to pop don next Saturday 7th May. No need to pre-book sheep currently, just check in before 9am!
