Grafton Market Report

Date: Tuesday 8th August, 2017

373 Head Yarded 120 Export 253 Veal


Numbers fell once again in an overall plainer yarding. Two major export processors did not operate which effected the bullock and bull market, however cows remained similar to last week.

Vealers to processors sold fully firm with the better end consistently making over 290c/kg.

Re stockers were more selective in a plainer yarding of lightweight cattle.

Next Grafton Store Sale – Thursday 17th August 2017

Grafton Store Sale Market Report
Thursday 20th July 2017

There was a good yarding for the July Store Cattle Sale with a total of 936 head yarded.
Condition and quality was mixed, which reflected a patchy market.
Feeder steers saw limited competition with most sales between 260-270c/kg. Weaner steers were a feature with quality lines lifting in price, with the better quality lines consistently making over 350c/kg, which was up to 20c/kg dearer than the weekly Tuesday Sale.
Heifers and lesser quality cattle were hardest hit with price deductions, however still reasonable for this time of year.
There was a light yarding of 65 cows & calves on offer, which again saw less competition but still managed to top at over $1,600.
The next Store Cattle Sale will be held on 17th August 2017. Early entries appreciated.
