COMMERCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Western Star and Roma Advertiser — 12 August 1876

COMMERCIAL. Messrs. B. D. Mobbhead & Co., stock and •tation agents, Brishane, report under date August 3:— Stations.—The demand for good western stations -continues^ and first-class -western cattle runs, not too heavily stocked, are much "sought after. For such properties good prices can be obtained. The recent news from London, advising a heavy fall in wool, has had the effect of making buyers of sheep stations cautious. At the same time the result is not so injurious as might have been expected. It is generally believed that the fall is only temporary, and besides, the owners of really first-class pro perties prefer holding them to making much reduc tion in price. - ' Cattle,—Store bullocks of fattening ages are mnch enquired for, cheifly to supply southern wants; but the state of the country and the roads in certain Mparts of the colony have prevented several intending buyers from operating for the psesent.: We anticipate, however, that considerable business -will be done...
