Angus steers reach $784 at Wodonga
ANGUS steers have met anticipated demand at the opening of the 2013 Victorian beef weaner sales at Wodonga today.
Prices in the opening three lanes of the 4500 head Angus-only yarding have generally made $640 to $750 with a market top of $784 paid for a pen of 49 weighing 428kg.
The prize-winning yard was offered by the McQuilter family, Sandigo, Narrandera and was awarded the best presented of the sale.
Wodonga auctioneer Michael Scollard, Paull & Scollard said prices were as expected with the bulk of the earlier steer sales making 180-200c/kg lwt.
Pens of EU-accredited steers were sought at premium rates although only about a third were retained in the EU-production system.
