ASHBURTON MARKET REPORT.
The following is the Ashburton grain market report for the week ending May 3: —
The only new feature in the market is that oats have firmed considerably in price, and at the present time there are apparently some buyers who are compelled to come on the market to cover contracts, as'other buyers cannot see the justification of the saidden advance, and are standing off the market.
Wheat. —Brokers report that a little new business is passing, but the quality of the grain has~to be first-class, millers refusing any samples of a second-grade nature.
Oats. —The market suddenly advanced during the past few days, but cannot be considered exactly solid. Buyers' ideas vary by several pence per bushel. Values may be quoted at 3s 4d or 3s 5d for B Gartens, 3s 6d to 3s 7d for A srade, and 3s 8d to 3s 9d for heavy milling quality. Algerian oats have not responded in the same ratio to the advance on Gartons. , Chaff.— Very little business is passing, and nominal values may be given as 85s on trucks for prime quality.
