REPORT: Quiet week at Grafton saleyards

Ray Donovan Stock & Station Agents

There were 279 head yarded at Grafton Fat Cattle Sale 24th November 2020.

A mostly plain quality yarding was on offer this week, only 279 in total. There were too few bullocks to quote, however cows sold cheaper by 30-35c/kg, mainly due to a couple of processors deciding to sit on the bench this week, as kill space starts to fill before Christmas. Young cattle were met by strong competition, while the plain quality cattle were quite cheaper.

A/c JB Moran sold a Shorthorn Cross Steer 320.2c/kg weighed 545kg - $1,745.09
