GRACEMERE CATTLE SALE 27th  JULY 2018

A yarding of 2775 head was sold at Gracemere sale today consisting of 1550 Steers, 800 Heifers, 360 Cows, 20 Cows & Calves and 45 Bulls. A feature of the sale was a large line of heavy, 4 score bullocks from Nebo. There were also several lines from Bowen and Collinsville along with a good line up of local cattle. Quality and condition were good throughout the sale despite the continuing dry weather and the market eased across the board, with the exception of heavy feeder steers and weaner heifers which held firm on last weeks rates.
