GRACEMERE CATTLE SALE 09th MAY 2019
The Gracemere Combined Agents presented a total of 3990 Head, comprising of 1472 Steers, 1792 Heifers, 650 Cows, 36 Bulls, and 38 Cow and Calf units. Several larger lines were sourced from Isaac and Central Highlands regions with heavier and prime cattle being met by a strong market as regular buyers were in high demand. Lighter steer articles eased slightly, with heifers and lesser quality cattle drawing further back on last week’s rate by up to 20c.
