Today Kilrush held its cattle show and sale with prizes for cows, heifers, and bullocks. This attracted good numbers with some top quality lots on offer.

Cows in good order were particularly sought after. Top price Continental cow was €1720 for a Charolais cow weighing 910kg and they made up to €2.25/kg

Heifers were a lively trade especially with heavier lots with good farmer demand. The quality of heifers was clear with a Limousin heifer going under the hammer for €1710 she weighed 725kg. Heifers in general were a good trade with lighter heifers making up to 970 for a 360kg Charolais heifer. Bullocks again were of a very high standard with some excellent Hereford and Angus lots on offer. First prize winner Hereford bullock made €1360 weighing 630kg.
