Store Cattle Sale

Date: Thursday 15th October 2020

Total Head Yarded: 1111 x 61

Comments: Good numbers came forward once again for Grafton’s Monthly Store Cattle Sale. All categories were well represented with some very good quality cattle on offer, however there were plenty of plain condition and lightweight cattle, which is exactly what the restockers are after. The market was (believe it or not) stronger than last month with records being broken once again. Young cattle certainly were a highlight with many sales making well over 500c/kg and quite a few reaching 600c/kg.
