Dowra: Dry cows to €2,080 with plainer cattle ‘back in price’

Dowra Mart – Cattle Prices – 01-10-2022

According to a spokesperson for Dowra Mart, just under 800 cattle crossed the scales at its most recent sale on Saturday, October 1st, 2022.

They noted that “good quality cattle held in price from the previous week, while plainer cattle were back in price”.

They reported that dry cows also proved “harder” sold, and plainer heavy cattle were also “an easier trade”.

At Saturday’s sale, cull cows reached €2,080, while beef heifers soared to €1,940, weanling heifers hit €1,200, weanling bulls topped out at €1,250, and bullocks soared to €1,750.
