According to a spokesperson for Dowra Mart, a “slightly” smaller entry of cattle changed hands on Saturday, May 13th, 2023, with just under 500 cattle.

They noted that trade was “steady; however, plainer cattle proved harder sold”.

Meanwhile, a CHX bullock weighing 620kg made €1,930, while a CHX bullock weighing 590kg sold for €1,880.

In the other rings, a CHX heifer weanling weighing 365kg – €1430, while a CHX heifer weighing 610kg peaked at €1,990, and a CHX cow with a bull calf at foot found a new owner at €3020.
