Grafton Market Report

Date: Tuesday 24th November 2020

Total Head Yarded: 279 Export: 160 Veal: 119

Comments: A mostly plain quality yarding was on offer this week, only 279 in total. There were too few bullocks to quote, however cows sold cheaper by 30-35c/kg, mainly due to a couple of processors deciding to sit on the bench this week, as kill space starts to fill before Christmas. Young cattle were met by strong competition, whilst the plain quality cattle were quite cheaper.
