Close to 500 head of cattle were yarded during the 24th Annual Dunedoo Shorthorn Cattle Sale with about 300 of those on offer being Shorthorns.
The sale on Wednesday was held at the Dunedoo saleyards and conducted by local agents Milling Stuart Pty Ltd.
Weaner steers ranged from $390 to $680 a head, while heifers sold from $510 to $730.
Milling Stuart agent Jamie Stuart, Dunedoo, said cows with calves sold well.
"I thought the cows with calves sold very well to repeat buyers and the heifers and the weaner steers were tough enough to sell but it's just the way the market is at the moment," Mr Stuart said.
