Bulls to €2,560 at Dowra Mart

Dowra Mart report – cattle prices – 15-05-2021

According to a spokesperson, some 600 lots went under the hammer at Dowra Mart on Saturday, May 15th, 2021.

The spokesperson noted that “heavy cattle and forward stores very dear in both rings but some of the younger, plainer cattle were harder sold”.

“A big entry of dry cows and stock bulls met a very sharp trade for the heavy lots, while cows with calves at foot were also a shade dearer this week,” the spokesperson added.
