Wed 13 April 2022

GRACEMERE CATTLE SALE WEDNESDAY 13TH APRIL 2022

Combined agents yarded 3,416 head yesterday, comprising of 2,051 steers, 822 heifers, 480 cows, 50 Cows & Calves and 13 bulls. Cattle were drawn from as far North as Bowen & Collinsville, South to Miriam Vale and all local areas in between. With a slightly mixed quality yarding on hand, some due to the increasing dry seasons, the market eased over most descriptions, all though the better-quality cattle still met with strong competition. With all the usual processors and feeder operators present, although not all operating in full operation and restockers were not as plentiful. Yearling Cross bred heifers met with strong competition reaching 658c/kg and weaner steers topped at 776c/kg.
