GRACEMERE CATTLE SALE MARKET REPORT – WEDNESDAY 3RD JULY 2024

  • Yarding Numbers: 566
  • Location: Gracemere
  • Date: July 2, 2024

This week Gracemere combined agents yarded a total of 566 head consisting of 308 Steers, 203 Heifers, 37 Cows, 2 Cows & Calves, 2 Bulls, and 14 Mickeys. Local rainfall and wet conditions made for reduced yarding following the Weaner Sale at the start of this week. Steers were 22 cents softer, with Heifers 13 cents softer. Cows were almost 50 cents stronger this week. Considering the low number of head presented for sale and a mixed yarding of cattle, the market held up reasonably well and ended up holding firm last week. Weaner Steers averaged 263c/kg & topped out at 330c/kg. Feeder Steers averaged 230c/kg with a top price of 278c/kg. Weaner Heifers averaged 205c/kg & reached a top of 226c/kg. Feeder Heifers averaged 248c/kg, which was also the top price with very few numbers to quote. Cows averaged 234c/kg and reached a top price of 267c/kg.
