Store Cattle Sale

Date: Thursday 18th February 2021

Total Head Yarded: 1248 x 109

Comments: An excellent quality yarding was on offer at Grafton’s monthly Store Cattle Sale. Heavy feeder steers were well supplied, with both buyers and spectators commenting on the quality and condition. Most feeder steers over 400kg sold from 400c/kg up to 460c/kg, many sales over $2,000.00 per head. Weaner steers and heifers didn’t quite archived last month’s highs, however, the market was still very strong. Cows & calves started off a little weaker, but soon lifted in prices as the sale went on topping at $3,220 for big framed cows & sappy calves, PTIC back in calf. PTIC Cows reached 370c/kg or $1,952.00.
