Store Sheep,—There was only a moderated entry,', consisting chiefly of : the class of mixed crossbreds most suitable for /putting op.turnips for finishing; off. These sold, according to quality, at from 8s 6d to 12s Bd, the latter being a good line of two and four-tooths. Some aged , merinos.,; for boiling, sold at cheap 'rates,. "' "*'; '■' '" ■'" :* [ x . Fat Lajeejs.— The. demand for lamW for export showed & >L considerable' decline on.former markets, and, as local requirements._are very small,- the business done was ' limited. A line of best freezers reached 17s 3d, but 13s 6d was the next price secured. Butchers' lambs brought from 6sto 8s according to quality. ;
