GRACEMERE CATTLE SALE Wednesday 26th FEBRUARY 2020

CQLX combined agents presented a yarding of 2064 yesterday, consisting of 794 steers, 916 heifers, 250 cows, 20 bulls and 84 cows and calves. With patchy rain around the area the market sold to a firm trend. Prime cattle held prices on the previous weeks rate, with a full panel of buyers operating. Feeder cattle were met by strong competition with prices remaining firm. Store cattle including store cows were well sought after with re-stockers again being very competitive, with better quality seeing an improvement in price. Lines of cows and calves were unable to hold the strong prices from previous weeks with a decline in quality.
