The yarding at Gracemere was similar to last weeks, with a total of 2141 head; comprising of 813 Steers, 909 Heifers, 389 Cows, 23 Bulls, and 7 Cow & Calf units. Quality and condition were mixed throughout the day in the yarding, drawn from the normal catchment around of Central Queensland between Bowen, Gin Gin and west to Moura. Buyers comprised the normal group along with an extra processor and several new faces in the restocker paddock. A little moisture in some areas has helped change buyer attitudes. Values improved for most classes throughout the day.
