Stock Comment

772 head of cattle yarded at Grafton on Tuesday.
It was evident very early that good quality well
finished cattle either sold dearer or firm. However,
lesser quality and plain (drought affected) cattle
are increasingly hard to move. Overall, the best
bullocks sold to 290c/kg, heavy cows to 240c/kg
and good quality heavy vealers selling to 10-
20c/kg dearer topping at 255c/kg.
As the drought continues to grip we can see quite
clearly at the saleyards the effect its having on
producers. Cattle a few months ago were fat and
shiny and now the percentage of fat cattle is
getting fewer and fewer every week.
