Headford Co-Op MART REPORT 28 May 2022


Stock was on fire today in Headford with numbers on offer even larger than expected earlier in the week. The Cull Cow was the shining star this week – though all categories sold fast and furious.

With hot demand and full clearance, we were delighted that so many farmers answered the call for more stock to meet the demand. See our online pages FB, Insta, TicToc for pics. Next weeks form is already looking good with a nice supply of bullocks already booked in and another hot week for the cull cows is expected.  Call 093 35572 to book or message us on our facebook page "Headford Livestock Mart & Property Sales.”

Finally, we wish all the Headfest crew the very best for the festical’s long-awaited return next weekend - especially our own Co-Op committee member Liam McDonagh, who is working hard for both committees at the same time. For all the events at Headfest over the weekend see their facebook page ‘HEADFEST.’ – But definitely don’t miss the Tractor Run 3pm Saturday!
