Dry cows to €2,050 at Dowra Mart

Dowra Mart report – cattle prices – 17-04-2021

According to a spokesperson, just under 900 cattle were sold at Dowra Mart on Saturday, April 17th, 2021.

They reported “a very strong trade for the fancy lots of both bull and heifer weanlings”.

“Some of the plainer lots and heavy bull weanlings proved harder sold. A super entry of heavy dry cows met a very strong trade and store dry cows were also very dear this week.”

Meanwhile, under 700 cattle were offered for sale at the mart at the previous week’s sale, with a report available here.
