Plainer bull weanlings and cows a harder sell at Dowra Mart

Dowra Mart – cattle prices – 06-11-2021

According to a spokesperson for Dowra Mart, some 860 lots changed hands at its general cattle sale on Saturday, November 6th, 2021.

They reported that “quality lots were dearer, but plainer cattle, especially bull weanlings, were an easier trade.

“A big entry of 150 dry cows and the same again, good cows were very dear, but the poorer, older cows were harder sold.”
