EVERYBODY was expecting a long, hot, and humid day, under the big top at Barnawartha near Wodonga for the first day of weaner sales, and while it was hot and humid, a fast sale saw an early completion to the day.
Corcoran Parker, Elders, and the newly formed Landmark-Paull&Scollard, combined to offer a large yarding of 6978 cattle.
Opening the sale, agents sold four pens of better quality yearling and older steers from $1270 to $1385.
However, the feature of the sale was the long line up of 2018 drop Angus steers, most of which weighed from 320kg to 380kg lwt.
A single pen of 15 Angus steers, offered by J and A Wallace, Porepunkah, weighed 437kg, and sold for $1275, while many other steers sold from $1000 to $1190 a head.
