13/09/2018 - Kilkenny Cattle Mart Report

 A bigger sale in Kilkenny on Thursday with 1200 head on offer. Continentals still the most popular breeds especially those originating from the suckler herd. Dairy influenced AA.Hereford and Friesian bullocks 380 kilo or less most difficult to sell. Many farmers who held onto some of these animals especially those milking would have been finically better off selling them as calves. Farmers who buy calves and feed them for 6 to 8 months should now consider where they source these animals from because many are not even making what they cost especially heifers originating from the dairy herd.
