According to a spokesperson for Dowra Mart, just under 400 cattle changed hands at last Saturday’s (August 13th, 2022) sale.

The spokesperson reported that a “slightly” smaller entry went under the hammer at the sale, which was held in conjunction with its autumn-born heifer weanling sale.

They said that “trade was up from last week with heavy and forward cattle very dear” while heifer weanlings also met a very sharp trade”.
