Pics and prices: Quality lots hold well at Dowra

- Advertisement -

There was a smaller sale of 350 cattle on offer at Dowra Mart’s cattle sale on Saturday (June 6th), according to a mart spokesperson.

They reported that trade was “slightly easier” for all classes. Quality lots held well but plainer animals were harder to sell on the day.

A good entry of top-quality dry cows was met with a good trade, however, with prices “well-maintained” from the previous week.
