FIRST EVENING SALE AT KILMALLOCK A HUGE SUCCESS

The first evening Show and sale of Weanlings, Runners and Sucklers was a huge success on Tuesday evening last, with the Main Ring packet to the rafters and nobody left disappointed.

300 cattle were on offer from 56 sellers and 59 Farmer and Exporters buyers from Tyrone, Clare, Waterford, Tipperary, Kerry, Offaly, Antrim, Westmeath and Limerick purchased stock.

All agreed that trade was excellent, one farmer mentioned that it was a “Rocket” if a sale.

Bull sold for up to €990 a head or €2.82 per kg.  Heifers made up to €920 each or €2.52 per kg.  Runners sold for up to €540 each and to €1730 was paid for Sucklers per unit.

On this Tuesday Evening we have a Reduction Sale of 30 Continental Sucklers Heifers and Cows in conjunction with our normal Weanling and Runner Sale at 6 p.m.
