Grafton Market Report

Date: Tuesday 14th August, 2018

Total Head Yarded: 212    Export: 80    Veal: 132

Comments:

There was reduced numbers this week in a mostly plainer yarding for all categories. The limited number of export cattle made both cows and bullocks hard to quote, while the few feeder steers sold fully firm with most sales between 255-266 c/kg. The odd grain fed butcher calves yarded sold well topping at 250 c/kg. Vealers sold to reduced rates mainly due to quality while all restocker weaners were cheaper with Angus steers under 250kg only reaching 210 c/kg.
