Northern buyers were again active at Kyneton's monthly store sale, with cattle going as far away as Deniliquin.
Agents said high prices this week and favourable seasonal conditions had seen vendors offload spring drop weaners.
"The sale was very strong and on-trend with last month," Mr Coxon said.
"There was no real feedlot order, as such; it was more driven by restockers and backgrounders."
Producers were turning off spring calves, opting not to have to feed them over winter.
"We are seeing a lot of cattle at 300kg, or better.
'We don't always get them at this time," Mr Coxon said.
"But the cattle have good weight, matched with a great season, and when producers are going to get $1000-$1500 for weaners, its a 'no brainer'."
Rodwells McGrath's Kieran McGrath said cattle again went north.
He said The Active Corporation, Glendene, sold 18 third and fourth Pert Angus and Rennylea blood calvers, for between $2660 and $2700.
The draft was bought by Michelle Dicks, on behalf of the Mingela Pastoral Company, Drummond.
"The breeding of the cattle is as good as anywhere, and people realise you have to have to get good genetics, to get good results," Mr McGrath said.
John Robson, Nutrien Ag Solutions, described the job as very solid, particularly on bids for the lighter weight calves.
He said the number of spring drop weaners offered was no surprise.
"I think the money is too good," Mr Robson said.
"Vendors were saying they could run them through to spring.
"But how much more money would they get?"
