Dowra: Weather woes fail to impact trade with highs of €2,200

Dowra Mart – Cattle Prices – 17-12-2022

Adverse weather conditions drew a smaller entry to Dowra Mart’s final cattle sale of the year on Saturday (December 17th, 2022).

That is according to a spokesperson who reported that a total of 290 cattle, including 84 dry cows, changed hands at its weekly cattle sale.

They noted that “quality lots were very dear in both rings with a top price of €2220 for an 820kg LMX cow, while a CH bullock, weighing 650kg, made €1940”.
