Corrin Mart will hold a herd dispersal sale for Maurice Walsh, Carhue, Kilbehenny, Mitchelstown, Co. Cork, on Friday (March 4). This will be the first dispersal sale of the year held by the Cork based mart.

The sale will consist of 90 top quality dairy stock, including 85 dairy cows, four maiden heifers and one pure bred Aberdeen Angus bull.

There will be approximately 60 cows calved on the day of the sale. The herd is averaging 6,000kg of milk at 3.62% protein and 4.35% fat.

Ahead of the sale AgriLand spoke with Corrin Mart manager Sean Leahy, to gain a bit of insight as to what buyers can expect.

Commenting on the upcoming sale, Sean said: ”These cows are a coming from a very genuine herd, with the owner now retiring from dairying.

”Last year the herd supplied over 520kg of milk solids to the co-op. Buyers can expect a mix of freshly-calved cows and in-calf cows on the point of calving.

”These cows would add to any herd they may join or would be super foundation stock for a new entrant into dairy farming.”
