Competition varied from the first day of sales at Wodonga, but the vendors did not miss out with cattle bought by feedlots, local producers, backgrounders from South Australia, NSW, and Victoria, and Tasmania was mentioned in the buyers list too.
The sale was conducted by Wodonga’s independent agents, Rodwell-Peter Rurao Livestock, BUR Livestock and Schubert Boers.
