Trade ‘improves’ for heavy dry cows, bullocks, and heifers at Dowra

Dowra Mart – cattle prices – 20-11-2021

According to a spokesperson for Dowra Mart, just over 700 lots changed hands at its cattle sale on Saturday, November 20th, 2021.

They reported that quality lots were a steady trade, while some plainer types remained a harder sell.

“The heavy cattle in the dry cow, bullock & heifer rings were an improved trade with some very fancy prices for the top lots,” the spokesperson added.
