REPORT OF COMMITTEE.

The undersigned having been appointed a committee to examine the above described sheep would report : That they have examined the same, and are of the opinion that H. J. Starr is entitled to a premium on five ewes, one year old ; that.Carey & Start should have a premium on five ewes, 2 years old and over ; and that Robert Perrine is entitled to a premium on his buck. We would say that we did not come to this conclusion in consequence of any particular excellence in the sheep exhibited, but rather in consideration of the fact that, in our opinion, they are a class of sheep that are likely to be wanted. All of which is respectfully submitted.

REPORT OF COMMITTEE. Your committee have been pleased with the exhibition of Leicester sheep. We have made the awards as noted in the margin. We will briefly say that we believe this breed of sheep ought to be encouraged on account of their wool, but especially for the mutton, they being a class of sheep that very readily fatten.

5 2d best, W. D. Smith, Hebron, 0.....

3 REPORT OF COMMITTEE, We have examined the fine thoroughbred goats—both sexes—entered for competition, also the eleven grades-from 3-4 to 15-16 blooded – find the high grades very soft and fine samples, and almost equal to the full bloods. Think crosses of the pure Cashmeres on the common goat are to be desired, and that when bred with care they will form desirable acquisitions to the wool production of our State.

3 REPORT OF COMMITTEE. We, the undersigned committee, on examination found a very limited exhibition of large breeds ; some entries without competition, especially large boars ; one other difficulty was the want of purity of blood, with a few exceptions. We would call the attention of breeders and stock raisers to the above facts.
