File picture of selling action at Wodononga.

At NVLX Wodonga numbers lifted.

It was another plain offering with trade cattle in short supply.

Buyers were selective across all grades and only bidded to quality. 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 some steer vealer sales improving by 12c, while the heifer portion softened 5c/kg.

The majority of the vealers made from 383c to 432c/kg.

Trade steers and heifers were few, selling from 339c to 404c/kg. Feeder heifers light weight improved 20c making from 330c to 395c/kg. In the export market competition was subdued with buyers not willing to entre bidding duels.

Heavy steers sold 42c cheaper to average 342c/kg.

The better bullocks failed to attract on buyers resulting in a cheaper trend of 20c/kg. Bullocks sold from 327c to 359c/kg. Heavy cows were unchanged to a few cents easier, selling at 290c to 330c/kg.
