VENDORS: Clare and Rob Jackson, Strzelecki, sold 10 Angus steers at Leongatha's store sale on Friday, weighing an average of 438kg, for $1770 or 404c/kg.

High volumes of store stock through Victorian saleyards are likely to lead to lower than usual supplies come spring as northern NSW restockers and feedlots continue their charge for Victorian cattle.
