Talycafn Fat Stock Show.

Detailed Lists, Results and Guides

Talycafn Fat Stock Show. A LARGE ENTRY. Talycafn in itself is but a small and unim- portant place, but the fact that Messrs Robert & Rogers Jones's Mart is .situated at that spot, has made all the difference to the locality. On Tuesday morning, from an early hour, there was considerable life and bustle in the neighbour- hood, and almost every farmer amd sitock-bireedler of note for many miles around was represented in Messrs Rogers Jones's catalogue of the six- teenth Christmas prize show and sale. This firm, who are nothing if not enterprising, had, according to their usual custom, offered cash prizes amounting to £ 3$. There were also other prizes offered by the Palatine Mill Com- pany, and by Messrs J. Bibby & Sons, and al- together an iruterestirug programme of competi- tions was offered. All the various classes were well filled, and in somq cases the judges had the greatest diffi- cult in deciding the awards. There was a heavy list of entries, comprising 165 prime fat cattle, 1,200 ripe wethers, ewes, and lambs, 60 uacon and porket pigs, and a number of fat calves. The jiudges for cattle were Messrs Charles Siawbridge, Wigan, and David Foulkes, Pen- maenmawr. Sheep, Messrs W. O. Williams, Festiniog, and David Foulkes, Penmaenmawr. Their awards in all cases gave the utmost satis- faction. The quality of the exhibits was su- perior to anything seen tor a long time. There was uniformity of quality thronchout, and the butchers who were fortunate enough to secure Christmas beef and mutton at Talycafn will have the very choicest to offer their customers for the festive season. Among the most important buyers were Messrs Jones Bros., High-street, Conway and Deganwy, who secured the champ- ion beast, as well as several other lots. Others were Messrs J. T. Jones and David Owen, Con- way John Jones & Sons, Edward Owen & Sons, Llandudno.; Griffith Jones, William Jones, and G. F. Kerry, Llanrwst; Davies Bros., Colwyn Bay; H. Morris, E.
