GRACEMERE CATTLE SALE Wednesday 12th August 2020

CQLX combined agents yarded a total of 2,167 head, comprising of 1,147 steers, 743 heifers, 253 cows, 13 bulls and 11 cows & calves. With a reduced yarding the buying panel was very active to secure the better lines. Limited numbers on finished cattle meant processors were selective, with the job holding firm. Feeder cattle sold to a dearer trend seeing a 5-10c lift. Store cattle also sold to a dearer trend with heifers seeing a large increase. Cattle were drawn from Bowen, Middlemount, Mackay, Biloela, Calliope and all local areas.
