A big yarding of 1600 head of cattle was yarded at Bega's May store sale on Thursday.
Buying support came from Leongatha, and orders were in place from Wodonga, Victoria, plus there was good local competition for cattle.
Prices slipped again from the previous sale due to an oversupply of numbers, according to Stewart Smith, Chester & Smith, Bega.
"The better end of the cattle were firm to $100 cheaper," Mr Smith said.
"The secondary cattle were $200 to $500 cheaper.
"The lighter cattle are getting harder to sell. Plenty of numbers are being yarded in many areas; heading into winter and the forecast of dry weather isn't helping the cattle market at the moment."
Steers to 18 months of age made to $1530 a head, while the best of the weaner steers made to $1250.
The better end of the steers made from $950 to $1100, while the younger steers made $600 to $850.
Dairy cross cattle sold from $200 to $400.
Joined heifers made to $1740, weaner heifers sold to $1130, while the tops made from $900 to $1100.
Younger heifers sold for $400 to $650.
Cows with calves made to $2100, with most making $1200 to $1600.
