GRACEMERE CATTLE SALE Wednesday 25th November 2020

CQLX Gracemere agents yarded an increased number of 4,634 head today, comprising 2,380 steers, 1,946 heifers, 278 cows, 24 bulls, and 6 cows & calves. The increased yarding was mainly due to large single vendor quality lines being drawn from the Nebo/Collinsville area. Other cattle where drawn from Koumala, Dingo, and local areas. All processors were present but where not as strong as previous weeks. Feeder steers decreased slightly on last week’s exceptionally high rates. Weaner steers struggled to maintain previous weeks’ highs but where still keenly sought after. Similar trends were seen in the heifer market.
