Full report: Excellent result for opening Wodonga weaner sale | Video

THE weaner sales have kicked off at the Northern Victoria Livestock Exchange (NVLX) at Barnawartha near Wodonga in Victoria.

So many weaners went under the hammer on the first day, Thursday January 5, that they wouldn’t all fit under the cover at the site.

Matt Tinkler of Elders sums up the day:

The Land’s Wagga Wagga journalist Bridie Edwards brought you all the highlights on Snapchat throughout the day.

Just over 6,400 Angus steers and heifers were penned to produce arguably the best offering of Angus cattle in many years.
