Grafton Market Report

Date: Tuesday 8th June 2021

Total Head Yarded: 191 Export: 100 Veal: 91

Comments: Although numbers were scarce, the market held fully firm this week, as winter starts to arrive across the state. There were too few bullocks to quote, while cows sold firm, even though not all buyers operated. Young cattle saw slight rises for better quality types with buyers realizing that the numbers are running out.

Please Note: The Fat Cattle Sale Tuesday 15th June 2021 has been cancelled. The Store Cattle Sale scheduled Thursday 17th June 2021 will proceed as planned. Weekly Fat Cattle Sales will resume as normal on Tuesday 22nd June 2021.

Store Cattle Sale

Date: Thursday 20th May 2021

Total Head Yarded: 1191 x 96

Comments: Another good yarding was offered at the monthly Grafton Store Cattle Sale. The quality and condition was fair to good with some cattle showing signs of the cooler wet weather of late, giving buyers the opportunity to acquire good frame without all the condition. The market again was very strong for all grades of stock, most of which will leave the local area. Feeder Steers, Angus weaner steers and cows & calves were the most sought-after product for buyers, with some very good prices achieved.

Grafton Feature Weaner Sale

Date: Thursday 6th May 2021

Total Head Yarded: 2706

Comments: An outstanding line of weaners came forward for the Annual Feature Weaner Sale in Grafton. The quality and condition was of a high standard, the good season putting plenty of weight in the calves, with plenty weighing over 300kg and some pens knocking on the door of 400kg. Heavy steers over 300kg sold as good as what we’ve seen in recent months while steers in the 200kg to 300kg range selling slightly easier on average, however, there were some excellent results on certain pens. Surprisingly, heifers sold almost on par with their brothers, with many sales making from 530c/kg to 560c/kg for 220kg to 260kg calves.

Congratulations to all Vendors of this years Sale. The quality was excellent and keeps getting better every year. Thank you also to the sponsors for your continued support.
