Some “exceptional prices” were recorded for good quality store heifers and weanlings, while weanling bulls were a steady trade. Dry cows were a slightly easier trade.

Another big sale at Dowra Mart on Saturday (February 23rd) with over 900 cattle on offer, according to a spokesperson for the mart.

Weanling bulls were a steady trade, while a special sale of bullocks saw young, nicely-conformed bullocks were “very dear” and some of the older plainer-types proved harder sold, the spokesperson outlined.

Some “exceptional prices” were recorded for good quality store heifers and weanlings, the spokesperson added.

“Dry Cows were a slightly easier trade, while a reduction sale of Springer Cows met a very strong trade.”
