With 1765 head yarded for the regular store cattle sale at NVLX Wodonga, there was spirited bidding on the lines of quality stock with feedlot operators competing with local restockers for the better pens.

The market was quoted as being stronger than the previous sale at NVLX Wodonga but in line with the rise in store prices across southern saleyards.

Peter Ruaro Rodwells, Wodonga auctioneer Scott Campbell thought the values for the heavier steers were 20c/kg to 30c/kg up on the last sale.

"There was a lot of strength in the market," he said.

"It was definitely dearer for the light weight steers and the heavier heifers, but there were some good chances for buyers to pick up a reasonably priced pen."

Weaner steers sold from $920 to $605 while lighter weights sold to $560 and yearling steers topped at $1265.

Unjoined heifers sold fro $1085 to $670 while lighter weights sold to $550.

PTIC cows sold to $1240 while cows with calves sold from $1960 to $800.

Victoria restockers from Wangaratta, Wodonga and Corryong competed with producers from Finley, Griffith and Narrandera.

Albury-Wodonga Independent Stock Agents BUR, Peter Ruaro Rodwells, Schubert Boers and Corcoran Parker operated during the sale.
