GRACEMERE CATTLE SALE MARKET REPORT – WEDNESDAY 5TH JUNE 2024

  • Yarding Numbers: 1,224
  • Location: Gracemere
  • Date: June 5, 2024

This week Gracemere combined agents yarded a total of 1224 head consisting of 333 steers, 391 heifers, 409 cows,65 mickeys, & 8 bulls. Numbers reduced considerably due to the large yarding seen at the weaner sale on Monday. Weaner steers topped out at 338c/kg to average 250c/kg. Feeder steers reached up to 294c/kg to average 256c/kg. Weaner heifers topped out at 246c/kg to average 184c/kg. Feeder heifers reached up to 196c/kg & averaged 185c/kg. There was a large cow yarding this week with some of the best pens reaching up to 210c/kg to average 165c/kg. All main categories softened by 17 to 28 cents this week. However, this is likely due to the recent weaner sale and the reduced yarding seen this week.
