DESPITE wintry conditions quality was solid at Northern Victorian Livestock Exchange, Wodonga, on Thursday where a total of 1689 cattle were yarded. Steers topped at $2660 a head.
Brett Shea, Elders, said prices were slightly back on last month but this followed the current trend in the market.
"It's in line with what we've been seeing with sales down here in the past fortnight," he said.
Mr Shea said they were very happy with the result and the quality of the cattle with some cattle coming forward earlier due to the tight winter.
"It was a very good yarding for July given the cold and wintery conditions," he said.
