RURAL: Fat cattle sales return for 2021

Ray Donovan Stock & Stations Agents

There were 77 head yarded at Grafton fat cattle sale on January 12, 2021. The first sale back for 2021 saw possibly the lowest yarding on record, but it also saw some of the highest prices for some categories broken. Although numbers were low all the regular buyers were in attendance competing strongly for all types. Export cattle sold dearer, again the low numbers making it hard for an accurate quote. Many areas have received excellent rain over the Christmas period. The market in the short term will stay very strong.
