Grafton Market Report

Date: Tuesday 4th August 2020

Total Head Yarded: 487 Export: 217 Veal: 270

Comments: 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.

Other highlights included the herd dispersal of RR Davey Estate’s Santa Gertrudis infused herd, with the lead of the PTIC Cows reaching 358.2c/kg, 508kg to realise $1,822.00. The large gallery of buyers competed strongly, cattle went up to Roma in Queensland, west to Warialda and everywhere in between.
