The bidding was fast and competitive during the second day of the annual Wodonga weaner sales.
Rod and Rodda Manning, Mansfield, Victoria, sold 510 steers of Glendalloch bloodlines ranging in weight from 296 to 366 kilograms.
The Wodonga weaner sales start today, but the hot weather and lack of rain in the past week may disrupt buyer competition.
It was a big year for sheep and beef studs at on-property and multi-vendor sales, as well as in the show ring.
A large yarding of mixed quality cattle and a lack of follow up rain in the north didn’t impact prices at Wodonga as much as might have been expected.
Recent local rains boosted producers’ optimism about their feed prospects ahead and that was reflected in the prices paid.
EARLIER this month, Derrynock Poll Dorset stud, Trentham East, recorded an on-property sale record, selling a ram to a top of $26,000.
Volume buyer, Glenthompson Pastoral Co, Glenthompson, paid a sale top of $11,500 at the 28th Annual Horsham Border Leicester ram and ewe sale on Monday.
