Grafton Market Report

Date: Tuesday 27th July 2022

Total Head Yarded: 98 Export: 40 Veal: 58

Comments: There was a reduced yarding today at Graftons Fat Cattle sale with only 98 head sold. The quality was mixed making it hard to get an accurate gauge on the market, however Cows and Bullocks sold to cheaper trends due to low numbers. Young cattle sold to cheaper trends also given the low numbers and the quality was back on previous weeks.

Store Cattle Sale

Date: Thursday 11th August 2022

Total Head Yarded: 457

Comments: Cattle numbers have almost stopped across large parts of the Eastern Seaboard, following the price drops from the recent weeks. Good news is, the downward trend may be over, as todays market saw a big jump in prices, in some parts being 200c/kg better than 3 weeks ago. The quality was patchy with the majority of the yarding being weaner types. There was only 5 Cows & Calves on offer making it hard to get an accurate quote. PTIC Cows sold well, topping at 368c/kg.
