GRACEMERE CATTLE SALE WEDNESDAY 27TH APRIL 2022

Following the light but welcoming rain in many areas, combined agents seen a reduced yarding of 1,348 head today, comprising of 639 steers, 470 heifers, 224 Cows, 7 Cows & Calves and 8 bulls. Cattle came from local areas together with drafts from north to Collinsville and Mount Coolon. Cattle were generally in good condition although a little mixed in quality in places. Competition came from the usual feeders and processors although there was one operator in each category not present. There were increases through the yarding due mostly to the quality offered.
