GRACEMERE CATTLE SALE 11th OCTOBER 2019

The Gracemere Combined Agents presented a reduced yarding to total 1858 head; comprising of 894 Steers, 624 Heifers, 306 Cows, 10 Bulls, and 24 Cow & Calf units. Cattle came from the usual draw areas of Central Queensland and were very mixed in quality and condition which made buying much more challenging. Consequently, prices struggled to maintain previous rates in many classes.
