SIX weeks ago Wodonga agents were quoting a quieter start to 2016 as many cattle had been sold early due to the poor season.

However, the first sale of the second week, which was an all breeds sale, opened to continuing strong competition for a market that exceeded the number advertised. 

The independent agents offered 3953 head, which came from quite a broad area, and varied in age and quality.
