Grafton Market Report

Date: Tuesday 14th September 2021

Total Head Yarded: 261 Export: 150 Veal: 111

Comments: Heavy bullocks and steers along with some prime cows were well supplied this week, the extra numbers attracting some extra competition. Both bullocks and cows broke records for Grafton Saleyards, with heavy 4 tooth steers reaching 409.2 c/kg and cows all but making 400c/kg. The quality in the young cattle was mixed, the market was lower but this was driven by low quality and lack of numbers.
