GRACEMERE CATTLE SALE Wednesday 6th MAY 2020
Gracemere combined agents saw numbers remain steady on last week’s sale, with a total of 2309, consisting of 804 steers, 808 heifers, 511 cows, 56 bulls and 130 cows & calves. There was a slight lift in the prime market, with well-finished cows selling to a dear trend. Heavy feeders once again gained momentum with strong competition trying to secure lines. The weaner market saw a large increase in prices today, with better quality crossbreds topping the market from both local and southern re-stockers.
** Reminder – The annual CQLX weaner sale will be held on Monday 1st June 2020 get your nominations in **
