GRACEMERE CATTLE SALE Wednesday 09th September 2020
CQLX combined agents yarded a total of 3,079, comprising of 1,444 steers, 1,200 heifers, 397 cows, 16 bulls and 21 cows & calves. Cattle were drawn from a wide supply area including Nebo, Mackay, Moura, Miriam Vale, and a large line from Bajool. The prime market was firm on last week’s rates, with all processors operating. A decreased offering of heavy feeder cattle saw prices a shade weaker, with the lighter cattle remaining firm. Weaner steers were unable to maintain previous weeks’ high prices, but averages remained firm. Vealer heifers sold to a dearer trend. The cow & calf market sold to a dearer trend being quality related.
** Please note there is no sale being held next week due to Stud Sales**
