Just shy of 200 calves were traded in Kilkenny Mart on Tuesday as the mart continues to implement a revised trading format in line with COVID-19 restrictions. Given the nature of the restrictions, it is a strong number to be moving in one day.

Tuesday’s offering consisted of 120 male calves and 75 female calves and these achieved 100% clearance. By breed, one-third of the bull calves were Friesians, while Angus-crosses and Hereford-crosses accounted for another 25% and 32%, respectively.
