Values strong for feeder steers and heifers at Gracemere

Weaner steers met with strong competition from restockers at the April 1 Gracemere sale.

Aa

Demand and values for heavy steers remained strong as Rockhampton combined agents yarded a total of 2901 head on April 1.

The market for prime cows eased a shade while prime ox held firm. Feeder steers and heifers also remained strong. Weaner steers met with very strong competition between restockers and were dearer, while the weaner heifers remained firm.
