File picture of selling action at Wodononga.

It was a very mixed plain offering with some stock showing the effects of the hot weather.

Trade cattle were limited with the bulk of the better finished stock vealers.

Domestic buyers were selective triggered by the plainer offering. Most of the usual buyers made it to the market.

Vealers made up the majority of the well finished trade cattle.

Prices were quality driven, with sales improving by 23c/kg for vealer steers.

The majority of the vealers made from 350c to 435c/kg. Trade steers and heifers were few, selling from 310c to 410c/kg.

Feeder heifers medium weight prices were unchanged due to steady competition.

The better bred heifers making from 330c to 375c/kg. In the export market competition was a little subdued, with buyer demand patchy at times. Heavy steers to feed on sold from 330 to 390c/kg.

Bullock prices softened 7c to average 362c/kg.

Heavy cows were unchanged to 3c dearer making from 286c to 315c/kg.

Leaner grades dipped 10c to 13c which was quality related.
