GRACEMERE CATTLE SALE 15th NOVEMBER 2019

Rockhampton Combined Selling Agents yarded 3733 head yesterday, a sizeable increase on last week’s numbers, comprising 1753 steers, 1227 heifers, 628 Cows 50 Bulls and 75 Cows & Calves.  Most categories eased marginally after the high of last week. The increase in cattle numbers was due to cattle coming from dry areas and also numbers forced to sell following fires in the nearby districts. Cattle were drawn from the usual local areas together with cattle from Wandoan to Collinsville. There were a much larger proportion of light conditioned cattle although there were some excellent quality, forward conditioned cattle on offer.
