GRACE­MERE

THERE was a smaller yard­ing of 2282 head at CQLX Grace­mere sale, 1048 less than last week. Qual­ity was good on an of­fer­ing drawn from lo­cal ar­eas along with con­sign­ments from Collinsvil­le, Mackay and Nebo.

A keen buy­ers panel pre­sented and pushed val­ues above the pre­vi­ous sale al­beit some of the im­prove­ment was due to the qual­ity penned.

Calves topped at 413c for the best steers, with mixed sex av­er­ages at 388c/kg for the best bred pens. Vealer steers also reached 413c, with the best av­er­ag­ing 373c/kg. Vealer heifers were lit­tle bet­ter with a top of 297c, and av­er­ages from 280c to 294c/kg. The best bred year­ling steers av­er­aged from 335c to 360c, top­ping at 403c/ kg. Year­ling heifers showed fur­ther im­prove­ments in price, mak­ing to 340c, and the best av­er­ages were from re­stock­ers at 295c to 329c/kg.

Feed­ers paid the best money for a very good qual­ity of­fer­ing of grown steers top­ping at 323c, and av­er­ag­ing from 288c to 313c/kg. Fin­ished steers to pro­ces­sors made to 316c, av­er­ag­ing 297c/kg. Grown heifers to the trade topped at 284c, to av­er­age 260c/kg. The 2 score cows sold to 228c, with most av­er­ag­ing 204c/kg. Prime heavy 4 score cows sold to 257c, to av­er­age 250c to gain 5c/kg. Heavy bulls also im­proved in price to av­er­age 248c/kg, to pro­ces­sors. The best bred cows and calves made $1,625/unit.

The buy­ing panel was again strong with the reg­u­lar pro­ces­sors and com­mis­sion buy­ers sup­ported by lo­cal re­stock­ers. As a re­sult, prices im­proved for al­most all sec­tions. De­spite the cow sale start­ing slowly, it picked later to record in­creases in the or­der of 20c/kg by the fin­ish.

Steer calves made to 380ckg. Vealer steers reached 406c to av­er­age 392c/kg. Vealer heifers sold to 329c, av­er­ag­ing 304c to 317c/kg.
