Ray Donovan Stock & Station Agent

THERE were 236 head yarded at Grafton fat cattle sale on November 3, 2020.

Similar numbers were yarded this week, all categories were well represented. Bullocks sold to a dearer trend while heavy cows remained the same. Once again restockers were far too strong for processors on the young cattle, with heifers selling exceptionally well with many sales over 500c/kg. The market was driven by outside orders and the inclusion of some local buyers.
