GRACEMERE CATTLE SALE Wednesday 21st April 2021

CQLX Gracemere combined agents had a decreased yarding of 3460 head today, comprising of 1983 steers, 1056 heifers, 334 cows and 67 bulls. Cattle were drawn from north towards Charters Towers and south to Miriam Vale to include the local draw area west to Bauhinia Downs. Quality and condition were again very good, with the exception of some cattle from south of Nebo where rain has been scarce. The normal line up of processors was supplemented by one extra operator which helped improve prices for cows in particular. The usual feeders also participated along with a strong line up of restockers. Price variations were in line with the quality penned with a lift in light yearling steers, grown steers and cows being the most noticeable improvements.
