A NERVOUS throng of agents breathed a sigh of relief after the Wodonga store cattle market last week.
Competing with a number of other sales in the State and also NSW had caused a few concerns, but despite the cheaper result, agents from Landmark, Elders and Corcoran Parker were relieved at the result.
Elders Albury auctioneer Brett Shea quoted grown steers as selling easier than the previous month's sale, ranging from 150c/kg up to 165c/kg on the better end, to average around the 160c/kg mark.
Weaner steers also sold well, Mr Shea said, with plenty of lines up around 190c/kg and even to 200c/kg on some of the lighter steers.
"It was a very good result going on the number of weaner calves on offer," Mr Shea said.
Cows and calves made above split value to top at $810, while unjoined heifers peaked at $610 and averaged 155-165c/kg.
