Addington Stock Market

[per press association.]

Christchurch, April 9. The sale to-day was about on a par with last Wednesday's, especially in respect of store sheep, which department was very full.

-Store Sheep.—A very large number was yarded, including all classes, and the majority jFound purchasers. Two-tooth crossbreds fetched, for wethers, 9s 6d, lls 6d, and 11s 9d; ewes realised 10s ; sound mouthed crossbred ewes brought 7s 9d, and four and sixth-tooth crossbred ewes reached 9s 7d. A very large number of merino ewes and wethers were disposed of at various prices. Boilers fetched up to 2s 3d, and sound mouthed sheep brought from 2s 9d to 4s. Most of the lines offered were disposed off. Some lines of crossbred lambs realised 5s to 7s 6d.

Lambs.—There were about 900 lambs entered, most of which found purchasers at 5s to 11s 4d.

Fat Sheep.—The sale of fat sheep was made so late, in consequence of the heavy entry of stores, that the butchers and freezers were getting scarce. Good quality wether mutton was fully worth 2£d, inferior and ewe mutton from ljd to If d per lb.

Fat Cattle.—There were 172 head entered, all of which sold at prices which compared favorably with last week's quotations, from 17s to 18s per lOOlbs being the price for best steer or ox beef. From 12s 6d to 14s was the range for cow and inferior heifer beef.

Store and Dairy Cattle.—There was a large entry of various classes of store cattle, but the demand was slight, the_ result being that only a few lines changed hands at prices anything but satisfactory to vendors. Dairy cows sold freely, ana fetched good prices. , Pigs.—There was a sign that the bacon season is setting in, as an undue quantity of light bacon pigs were to hand, in addition to a quantity of stores and porkers which sold freely.
