LAST Gracemere Cattle Sale for 2019

Fri 13 December 2019

GRACEMERE CATTLE SALE 13th DECEMBER 2019

The last sale for 2019 saw 3280 head yarded with a breakdown of 1015 Steers, 1555 Heifers, 529 Cows, 41 Bulls and 140 Cows & Calves. A mixed quality yarding again this week, due largely to the effects of the drought. However the market improved or held firm on last week’s prices for most categories, with a good lift in some Heifer classes. Merry Christmas to all & best of luck for some rain!
