YARRAWONGA. At a representative meeting of the district wheat producers held here, Cr. Bruce, shire president, in the chair, to consider the question of the Government fixing the price of wheat, it was pointed out that a number of farmers held wheat in this district, and, on account of the discouraging outlook of the season, and the severity of the dry weather, it might be necessary to feed stock on wheat.
