There has been a big stir amongst sheep   dealers since the rains, and the stock   routes are now open. Breeders are, how- ever, sitting back and don't want to sell un- less at fancy prices.  

Boorara Station, 70 miles from Thargo- mindah has been sold to Mr. Jowett Jnr., the price being, in the vicinity of £30,000.

Boorara has been cattle country but will : now be turned into .a sheep run. Other   runs around Thargomindah are being turn - ed into sheep country.    


CHARLEVILLE. Tuesday,   1924 came in with a buoyant sheep   market. One enterprising livestock agent   taking advantage of the breaking up of the drought, during the Xmas and New, Year's festivities sold 12,000 sheep tb .var- ious buyers. ln\one case he sold a-line-of sheep twicfe, without inspection/" making the vfendor ,¿2000 " over the phone in a. few hoursV' 1 know of cases,where another flock breeder-sold his sheep'at 18/. per head six hours ,tief ore the rain carno, and the secorid^ownér resold them yesterday at 2?./- per head. Tn another ease sheep were sold three times in"rtwo'idays and nev- er left the paddock. " The good , l-ains in N.S. W., Victoria,- urid-S.
