Corn exchange Report
The following is the Corn Exchange report for the week ending Friday :— Wheat.—A few lines of long berried for export have changed hands ; millers are buying sparingly. Oats.—Business is very restricted, holders being disinclined to accept the prices offering. ■ . • , ■ , .■ Barley.—The season may now be said to be over, large stocks are held by brewers and maltsters. , ; Beans and Peas.—No alteration can be noted, sales are difficult to effect, there being no outside enquiry. Holders of the-farmer prefer shipping where they can obtain space at a reasonable figure. Potatoes are almost unquotable, sales have been made at 10s per ton at railway stations within the 12 miles radius. Farmers who have been unfortunate enough not to sell will have cause to ragret the season of 1890 and to many the loss will be almost ruinous. May we never have such another" disastrous season. Grass Seed,—rVery few transactions are passing the season being somewhat advanced. Dairy Produce, —^Butter: The dry weather is affecting the output of most of the dairies and as a consequence less is being potted than is usual at this time of the year.
