DUVAUCHELLE MONTHLY STOCK SALE.

A LARGE ENTRY AND GOOD PRICES.

There was an entry of 650 head of cattle at the Duvauchelle Saleyards on Friday last and a good attendance of Peninsula farmers and buyers. The sale throughout was spirited and the fat cattle sale was a record for the yards, prices comparing more favourably with the Metropolitan market. ' The sale for store was ateo a great improvement on previous sales on account of the recent rain and the abundance of feed now available for grazing them There was a few plains cattle yarded which appeared in very poor condition compared with the Peninsula cattle which goes to show that the Peninsula has stood the drought very much better than the Canterbury plains have. Most of the yarding was sold. There were two lines of ewes, yarded, one line being sold privately and the other passed in at 18/6.
