THERE were 288 head yarded at Grafton Fat Cat­tle Sale on Tues­day.

There was a slight re­duc­tion in num­bers this week in a mixed qual­ity yard­ing. Bul­locks were scarce which saw a slight re­duc­tion in price with qual­ity and con­di­tion also lack­ing. Heavy cows sold fully firm to see the best reach a top of 253.2c/kg. Grain fed butcher year­lings were well sup­plied and sold firm to a shade cheaper. Good qual­ity an­gus steer wean­ers topped at 289.2c/kg while veal­ers held firm to top at 245c/kg. Once again light or low qual­ity wean­ers were hard to shift.
