Plainer cattle easier, but quality lots unchanged at Dowra Mart

Dowra Mart – cattle prices 09-10-2021

According to a spokesperson, over 930 cattle were sold at Dowra Mart on Saturday, October 9th, 2021.

The spokesperson reported that “trade was probably a bit quieter overall in both rings”.

“The top-quality lots probably held in price. Plainer cattle were a bit harder sold this week and the dry cows were also a bit less.”
