OUR WOOL TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — The Manaro Mercury, and Cooma and Bombala Advertiser — 12 March 1869

OUR WOOL TRADE. Taking this season's clip on the whole, it is in fair order; but in numerous instances the eioesoive stocking of stations and consequent soaroity of feed has had an unfavourable effect, the fleeces being rendered thus light in weight and inferior in con dition. There is no doubt that the grazing' capa bilities of many of the runs in Victoria and Riverina ' have been taxed to the utmost extent; consequently in a dry season like this the sheep suffer from want of sufficient grass, and this has, of course, a deterio rating effect on the wool. It is not difficult to foresee that the -evil will in time almost 'wbrk it« own remedy, for the decrease in numbers caused by the drought of the past few months has on some stations been considerable, and we believe that before the winter is over the losses will be further increased unleBg rain speedily sets in. The grass in several districts has been so closely' eaten down that 'there is scarcely any feed left.; consequently it is...
