A smaller yarding of 297 cattle at Grafton on Tuesday. The market for bullocks held firm to top at 254c/kg. Cows sold easier by 5-10c/kg to top at 210c/kg. Vealers to processors also followed this trend with more sales between 250c/kg & 270c/kg.

Rain is wonderful and magic thing and that is what the market here and away needs, some useful rain on the Darling Downs and predicted rain for the North West plains will put upward pressure on the market.  At the end of the day it’s a simple matter of supply and demand.
