Gracemere Market Report 7.12.18

CQLX combined agents yarded a total of 3081 head today, an increase of 1198 on last week’s sale. The yarding consisted of 1202 steers and bullocks, 1133 heifers, 516 cows, 87 cows and calves and 143 bulls and mickeys. Cattle were drawn from as far as Wandoan, Collinsville, Bowen and most parts of Central Queensland. Quality can only be described as mixed as plainer cattle continue to come forward due to dry conditions and as a result of the mixed quality yarding the market fluctuated.
