Dowra Mart – sheep prices – 03-09-2021

According to a spokesperson, categories met with an easier trade at Dowra Mart on Saturday, September 3rd, 2021.

They reported that “trade, in general, was quieter” as another “large” entry went under the hammer.

“Factory lambs were back by €2-€3/head. Store lambs were also an easier trade this week.”

“However, the quality of stores on offers were also less while cull ewes and breeding hoggets were also a shade easier,” they added.
