GRACEMERE CATTLE SALE Wednesday 10th February 2021
CQLX Gracemere combined agents had an increased yarding of 4570 head today, comprising of 2134 steers, 1820 heifers, 447 cows and 87 bulls. Quality and condition of the yarding was generally good. Cattle came from all local areas, north to Collinsville and south to coastal areas at Miriamvale. The usual buying panel of feeders and processors increased with an extra operator in each category and several new restockers were also operating. Improvements in the market were seen for yearling steers and grown heifers, with most other categories easing a little.
