TABLE Top Angus bloodlines were represented by a number of quality pens at the annual Wodonga weaner sales last week.

Celebrating 20 years of Table Top Angus this year, stud principals Tim and Jessica Scott of Willurah, Table Top, again offered their own steers and heifers at the annual event.

During day one the Scotts sold a draft of 80 steers through Corcoran Parker, Wodonga, including a pen of five to six-month-old Angus weaners weighing 251 kilograms that sold for $840 a head or 335 cents a kilogram, and others weighing 223kg that made $805 or 361c/kg.

"These steers were weaned younger ... but were really well grown," the Scotts said.

On the second day they sold their surplus heifers, including a run of 20 Angus heifers weighing 429kg for $1180 or 275c/kg through Paull and Scollard Landmark that were the top selling heifers, given they haven't had rain.

The Scotts are currently running 1000 cows, half of which are commercial and half stud.

With a number of their clients selling cattle of Table Top Angus bloodlines through the sale also, the Scotts look forward to annually attending the January Wodonga weaner sales.

"The presentation of cattle this year was a credit to all," Mr Scott said.

Table Top bloodlines were represented by drafts from Carinya Estate, Baranduda, Vic, KT. O'Reilly, Tallangatta Valley, Vic, P. Stagliano, Yan Yean, Vic, and B. and L. Quinn, Indigo Valley, Vic.
