Store Sheep,—-Only a, small entry which did not meet with a Avilling market, the lines being principally mixed asres crossbred ewes m lamb, which brought various prices up to 9s Bd. Several lines of merino wethers brought fair prices. Lambs.—There was almost a total absence of lambs, the two or three pens m bringing from 6s to 7s 6d. Pat Sheep.—Over 4000 yarded, of which there were some prime halfbred and crossbred wethers, which sold at a slight advance on previous rates. The demand at the close of the sale was still good. Some grand wethers from Alford Estate brought 245, while good halfbreds were sold at over 21s. Fat Cattle. —A rather heavy entry, comprising 181 head, caused the price of beef to decline slightly,' except m the case of prime bullocks, some of which realised up to £10 10s. Store Cattle.—The weather prevented much business being done m store and dairy pens, and the few sold were odd lots which fetched about the average rates ruling lately.
