GRACEMERE CATTLE SALE Wednesday 07th April 2021

Following some light rain in the local catchment area, CQLX Gracemere combined agents had a decreased yarding of 889 head today, comprising of 494 steers, 277 heifers, 70 cows and 28 bulls. Quality and condition were also more mixed than last sale and with the decline in numbers not all buyers present could secure sufficient numbers. Prices improved in most classes of young cattle, store conditioned cows and grown heifers.
