Strong cattle sales brings higher prices

Ray Donovan Stock & Station Agents

THERE were 293 head yarded at the Grafton Fat Cattle Sale on August 4, 2020.

There was a lift in numbers this week, export cattle were well supplied, and condition was good. The market for both bullocks and cows was fully firm, even though one processor didn’t operate. Prime vealers were very scarce, however, 406.2c/kg was reached for calves going to slaughter. Restockers were lacking weight but prices still very good in a fully firm market.
