Comments: Another small yarding for the Fat Sale this week, some categories were not represented which makes it hard for an accurate quote. Prime cows sold fully firm to top at 376.2c/kg. Weaners made up the bulk of the offering and sold very well considering some buyers were absent.

Store Cattle Sale

Date: Thursday 20th January 2022

Total Head Yarded: 1200 x 140

Comments: There was an excellent quality yarding AT Graftons First Store Cattle Sale for 2022. All categories were well represented in particular early season calves and good quality females. Store bullocks and feeders steers sold to a cheaper market, which is a reflection of the backlog of heavy stock caused by the covid situation in abattoirs. Light feeder steers sold firm. Weaner cattle sold fully firm with not many light cattle on offer. An excellent run of cows and calves and preg tested cows sold exceptionally well with the best cows and calves reaching $4,000 and PTIC cows making $3,050.
