Stock Comment

  After some magnificent rain last week we managed a yarding of only 150 cattle at Grafton on Tuesday. There were not enough bullocks on offer to quote, however cows were  dearer topping at 223c/kg and heavy heifers selling to 251c/kg. In the trade section vealers to the processors broke the magic $3/hd mark to top at 303c/kg. Restockers were once again hungry for store stock and pushed Angus weaner steers to 376c/kg.

Don’t forget the October Special Store Cattle sale this Thursday. On the 11th November we will hold DJ Adams Clearing Sale at Alumy Creek. This is a major event with thousands of items of Australian memorabilia, antiques and collectables as well as farming items.

It starts at 9am see our website for photos and more details.
