GRACEMERE CATTLE SALE Wednesday 28th April 2021

CQLX Gracemere combined agents had a decreased yarding of 2286 head today, comprising of 1119 steers, 646 heifers, 353 cows and 103 bulls. Cattle were drawn from a wide area of Central Queensland as far west as Clermont. It was a very mixed quality and conditioned yarding throughout. The processor buying panel included five operators in an unchanged line up with cow prices beginning well below last week’s rates and improving on the better presented runs of cows to conclude with averages well above last week on the heavy, finished lines. Feeder and restocker interest came from a mostly unchanged buying panel.
