    CQLX Gracemere report date 20 Apr 2018   MLA

    Yarding 3965 

    CQLX agents and vendors penned 355 head less this week with a yarding of 3,965 on offer. Cattle were drawn from as far afield as Taroom in the south to Richmond to the north. There was a good percentage of the yard from Bowen and Collinsville districts.

    Quality was good with the exception of a couple of pens of lesser bred steers. The usual panel of buyers was present with the exception of one processor although another took their place and this helped to improve prime cow prices.

    Well-bred steer calves sold to 334c/kg to restockers. The major runs of vealer steers made from 301c to 305c/kg to be just a few cents behind last week. Vealer heifers again eased to record averages between 220c and 232c/kg.

    The best bred lines of yearling steers sold to an occasional 308c to record a 281.5c average for light weights with medium weight yearling steers averaging 272c/kg, most returning to the paddock. Heavy yearling steer sold to feed to average 263c/kg. In the main yearling heifers were a little easier, averaging 223c to 234c/kg dependant on quality.

    Grown steers to feed made to a top of 265c and averaged close to 260c/kg.

    Grown heifers to feed averaged 220c and processors paid 218c/kg. Light conditioned cows to restockers averaged 140c for light weights with better framed cows making 162c to
    185c/kg. Prime heavy 4 score cows sold to top at 212c to average at 203c/kg. Heavy bulls averaged 226c/kg for the best which went to live export. Reasonable quality cows and calves were slightly easier selling to $1,350/unit.

    Cows with a good frame and new calves made over $1,050/unit.
