Dowra: Prices to €2,200 with plainer lots a ‘harder’ sell

Dowra Mart 29-10-2022 – Cattle Prices

According to a spokesperson for Dowra Mart, just over 800 cattle changed hands at its most recent sale on Saturday, October 29th, 2022.

The spokesperson noted that trade was “very strong” for quality lots, but plainer types proved to be a “harder” sell.

The spokesperson remarked: “Store cows were also back in price, but the heavy cows topped out at €2,200 for an 890kg entry. The top price for the heifer weanlings was €1,490 for a 360kg Charolais-cross.”
