Saturday 9 October 1875, The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser


Stations. – Buyers of pastoral properties have not been quite so active in their enquiries during the past week. The only demand has been for compact well-improved salt-bush sheep runs in the western districts, well away from selectors. I could place two or three of these at very satisfactory prices. Good cattle stations also maintain their value well. I would draw the attention of purchasers to my sale by auction, on Thursday next, of the Banksia and Cunderang stations.

Store Cattle. – In consequence of the depression in the fat cattle market, purchasers have become indifferent about buying at once. Large well-bred bullocks of fattening ages are not over plentiful, and are held for the late rates.

Fat Sheep. – Until the shearing is over, the business will be limited in this description of stock. Some sales of shorn wethers for forward delivery have been made in Queensland at 5s to 5s 6d per head, and aged ewes at 4s 6d to 4s 9d.

7th Oct., 1875.
