Stock Comment

340 cattle yarded for the last Tuesday sale of 2017. The market for bullocks sold softer. Cows, however bucked this trend to see the best top at 230c/kg. Vealers to the processors were also firm with up to 236c/kg being paid for the top vealers. Restockers were very strong throughout the sale bidding on most lots.

Thursday the 14th December will be our last store sale for 2017, your entries are invited and  recommended. We will come back in 2018 on the 9th January for our first Sale of the year.

Once again everyone from Farrell McCrohon would like to thank all those very good people who have supported and helped us this year.
