Corn Exchange Report
.... ....... .^fe-* .. —■*> The following is the Com Exchange Report for the week ending September 26th :—Business m the export grain trade is still very contracted. Wheat is scarcely so firm. Oats are most difficult, to place, and with the increase of feed m the paddocks the local demand will be lessened. Barley.—No lines of malting changing hands. Grass Seed.—fhe favorable weather has caused the enquiry to be maintained ; the same may be said of colonial grown clovers. Beans.—A few lines have changed hands for export. Peas are dull of sale. Potatoes.—This season will be long remembered by farmers who are unfortunate enough not to have sold. There seems little likelihood of any improvement m value or demand, and hundreds of tons will probably decay m the pits. Dairy Produce.—Business is lifeless, the only demand being for fresh butter. Our qnotations are as follow: — Wheat.—Tuscan, 3s 6d ; Pearl, 3s 4d ; Hunter's, 3s 3d. Oats.—Milling, Is 7d ; short heavy feed, Is 5d to Is 6d ; long and inferior, Is 3d to Is 4d.
