There were 309 head yarded at Grafton Fat Cattle Sale 1st September 2020.

A small increase in numbers this week. All types were represented. The few bullocks sold slightly easier, mainly due to two processors not operating. A good run of cows came forward and sold fully firm to a shade dearer. Processors could not compete with restockers in the young cattle, once again, the market for weaner cattle was very strong.
