NLRS report for the Dalby sale 17 March 2021 was not available at the time of publishing this report – report will be added when received.

Grant Daniel Long report

Dalby saw a smaller yarding due to some very good falls of rain over the previous few days, up to a 140mls in some areas. A full panel of buyers were present at the sale today, with them all competing strongly.   The market throughout was firm to dearer.
