FARM STOCK SALE
For many years the family of BUTLER have occupied the capital farm at
Stainton Head, near Dalton-in-Furness. Recently Mr. George BUTLER found the
farm was too large for his purposes, and he took the Lane End Farm,
Broughton-in-Furness. This is a much smaller farm, and yesterday (Wednesday) afternoon
Messrs. LOWDEN and POSTLETHWAITE, auctioneers, conducted a sale of stock,
crops, implements, and furniture at Stainton Head.
The weather was spring like, with the result that a very large number
of farmers and dealers attended from Dalton, Ulverston, Askam, Kirkby,
Broughton, Barrow, and surrounding neighborhood. Luncheon was served at twelve
o'clock, and sale commencing at one o'clock with cart gear, followed by implements,
good prices being realised, the sale being a splendid one all round. The
following is a return of the sale of stock.
