Ashburton Stock Market.


There was a fair attendance at the Ashburton yards to-day, the total entry of stock comprising about 2000 sheep, and 30 head of cattle. The cattle yarding was chiefly made up with beef, which sold at the rate of 17s 6d to 22s per lOOlbs. The yarding of store cattle was very small, and competition was not keen. Fat sheep were well represented, with a hotter quality of sheep than have been yarded at recent sales, while late rates were well maintained. The atore sheep were chiefly made up with aged breeding ewes and lambs, the former being easy, and the latter somewhat stronger in demand. The following are prices:— Cattle—Store Cattle—Dairy cows £2, £4, 15s; bull £2 2s.
