Pictures and Prices: Suckler pairs reach €1,900 at Dowra

Just 320 cattle were on offer at Dowra Mart’s cattle sale on Saturday (June 13th), according to a mart spokesperson.

They reported that trade was quieter for most classes, as bull weanlings and bullocks were harder to sell while heifer and heifer weanlings held their price from the previous week.

A good entry of cull cows were met with a very strong trade however, with a heavy forward cow reaching a top price of €1920.
