Stock Comment

297 cattle yarded at Grafton on Tuesday. The number came back as we head into the Easter period. A number of operators didn’t compete. However, the market held up exceptionally well and even improved in places. The best of the bullocks sold to 316c/kg and cows made to 248c/kg. Restockers were very strong on the weaners and pushed the market dearer. British bred weaner steers sold to 458c/kg and british bred heifers sold to 410c/kg.
