Store Sheep.—Only one small pen of store ewes and lambs Avere entered, and these formed no criterion of the market. Fat Sheep. —The early approach of shearing, the closing of two freezing works, and the springing grass combined to make farmers and graziers hold their stock, the result being that less than 2500 fat sheep were yarded. Of these a considerable number were merinos, and of no special quality, which brought from 9s 6d to 14s for wethers ; average light weight crossbreds realised from 13s 3d to 17s ; while a capital line of Hampshire Down cross fetched as follows—wethers, to 21s 6d ; maiden ewes, 20s; mixed ewes, 17s. Fat Catile. — One hundred and twenty-three were yarded, the bulk of which was piime beef, which commanded good prices. Best bullocks fetched from £9 10s to £11 5s ; cows from £5 os to £8 15s; and mixed quality at lower rates; The average for best beef was 25s to 28s fid per lOOlbs, and for cow and inferior quality 21s to 245. Store and Dairy Cattle.—There was only a small entry of mixed lots of store j cattle, and m these there were no leading lines.

A few two-year-old heifers old at £1 10s to £2 12s ; steers of the ame age from £1 16s to £3 2s ; a few yearlings brought up to £1 Is per head.
