GRACEMERE CATTLE SALE 14th DECEMBER 2018

The final sale for 2018 saw an increase in numbers this week for a total of 3384 head which comprised 1823 steers and bullocks, 1096 heifers, 234 cows, 38 cows and calves and 191 bulls and mickeys. Cattle were drawn from most parts of Central Queensland with several good quality lines of feeder cattle, which attracted strong competition from buyers. Better quality lightweight steers and heifers going back to the paddock firmed this week however restockers were selective with the poorer quality cattle.
