HASTINGS, HAWKE'S BAY
Knowing the high prices ruling throughout Canterbury, and the general inclination of the agriculturist, who has sold out, to take up sheep farming as a more congenial occupation we wish to place before these the advisability of having a look, round Hawke's Bay before purchasing, elseThe sheep country procurable in the' above named district can be right]. called a grazier's paradise on account of there being no need for the continual breaking up of pasture every 3 or 4 years, as is so necessary throughout Canterbury. . . Tlie older the grass is in Hawke s Bay the better, and there' are many places that are carrying year m and year out 5 sheep and one bullock (equal to ten sheep) per acre, on 20 to 30 year old pasture, and all stock are sold fat. . .... Hill sheep country is available, carrying li- sheep per acre, in 12 year old grass, at from £6 10s to £10 per acre, according to locality and convenience to markets, and only require Canterbury methods to turn them into little gold mines. • . ' The Fat Markets are now nearly on a par with Canterbury, and we maintain that we can quote properties which for actual returns would open the eyes of most southern men.
