Is it only poultry? No livestock?

Normally there is livestock but listed in a separate catalogue.  Odd that there is no mention of it though.

Would love to go and have a look at the Kerry Hills, but it is an eleven hour round trip, so don't think I can manage.

Well I left a bid on 4 in lamb ewes and 2 hoggs, but I haven't had anyone from the mart office on the phone asking me to pay so I guess I didn't get them!

I was there, prices were not bad a sellers market I thought. I played to much for my two lots but if you want something you have to pay the going price.
Shetland sheep, Castlemilk Moorits sheep, Hebridean sheep, Scots Grey Bantams, Scots Dumpy Bantams. Shetland Ducks.

Did you happen to notice what the Kerry Hills made at all?  What did you buy?

Definitely a sellers market for poultry! Prices were on the high side for those but missed a few of the livestock cos I was too busy blethering but shetlands, jacobs and soays went for not much. There was a goatling went through but luckily I missed her too or I'd be in trouble when I got home.
There were a couple of llamas too, will check online tomorrow to see if the prices are uploaded yet

Yes the friendliest sales going always has a good positive vibe about it from the people who sell and buy and the Mart staff.
