Dowra Mart – Cattle Prices – 27-05-2023

According to a spokesperson for Dowra Mart, just under 550 cattle changed hands at Saturday’s (May 27th, 2023) sale.

Dry cows peaked at €2440 for a CHX, weighing 840kg, while a CH stock bull fetched €3100.

Meanwhile, a light CHX bullock weighing 230kg topped out at €960, while a CHX heifer weighing 710kg sold for €2280 and a CHX bullock, weighing in at 625kg, found a new owner at €1890.

Trade, the spokesperson reported, was “similar to the previous week with some very strong prices for heavy cattle in both rings were slightly dearer”.
