There were 210 head yarded at Grafton Fat Cattle Sale 23rd February 2021.
Although numbers were down, quality and condition was mostly of a high standard this week with some very good cattle on offer. A good run of bullocks sold firm to slightly cheaper, while cows to processors were fully firm. Restockers were active on cows and young cattle in a fully firm market.
