Glenburnie Livestock Report 25/03/20

A much smaller yarding of 1275 cattle were offered at Glenburnie this week.  The sale was held under the new Australian Livestock and Property Agents rules for social distancing with only stock agents and professional meat buyers to attend.  We ask all people to respect this directive to enable our vital livestock markets to continue.  In these uncertain times the market saw bullock and steers firm, young cattle firm to dearer while the cows were easier.
