There were 343 head yarded at Grafton Fat Cattle Sale 19th January 2021.

Grafton Fat Sale saw a good yarding of cattle this week, with most cattle showing the benefits of the good season. Export cattle were well supplied, the majority being heavy cows. All processors were back in action and competed strongly to see both bullocks and cows sell much dearer. All the young cattle on offer were snapped up by restockers, with no sign of the market slowing, selling slightly dearer.

Please note there will be no Fat Cattle Sale next Tuesday 26th January 2021 due to the Australia Day Public Holiday. The next Fat Cattle Sale will be held Tuesday 2nd February 2021.
