CQLX Gracemere agents yarded a total of 3,877 head today comprising 1,749 steers, 1,517 heifers, 418 cows, 155 mickies & bulls, and 38 cows & calves. Cattle were drawn from Nebo, Bowen, Collinsville, Baralaba, Biloela, Emerald, and local areas. Processor cattle were firm on last week. Feeder cattle sold to a dearer trend.
