A number of people recently gave of their time
with various machines to work on Mt Stewart.
On behalf of the Friends of Mt Stewart, I would
like to thank Zane Powell, Mark Shaw, Phil
Shaw, Bruce Horton and Jim Hally.
It is because of the generosity of people like
you that Taihape can enjoy the asset that Mt
Clark shows superiority

The course was in perfect condition for
the 18 hole open tournament sponsored
by Craigs Investment Partners.
A good turnout of local players was
supported by 15 Feilding players and a
few from Turangi, Whanganui, Mana-
watu and Waimarino, although the
absence of neighbouring clubs Waiouru
and Rangatira was noted.
The greens were again in top order
and with the rough mowed short, scor-
ing was well above average.
The prize table was well supported
including a few golf bags up for grabs.
No one played better than Chris
Clark who scored 42 points in a solid
round, coming home in 24 points.
Gary Cleaver won the seniors with
41 points in another superb round. Tom
Power continues his good run of form
The gross was keenly contested with
Matthew Thomas shooting 72 off the
bat, Matt Booth 73. Koke Cashell and
Duane Dick 74, Ewan Ivestergard and

bert, Duane Dick and Merv Tapp on 39,

Di Lewis was runner-up in the gross

On Saturday Taihape played the Scaracens
(Marton), on the Taihape Recreational Ground --
only their second home game this season.
Scaracens batted first and scored 157 off their
40 overs. A depleted Taihape attack battled man-
fully and made the batsmen work hard for their
runs. Matt Jacobson produced an outstanding
spell, taking two for 15 off his eight overs, and
placing the batsmen under extreme pressure.
He was well supported by Alex Hawira (one for
21), Wayne Davies (three for 27), Brad Fannin
(two for 44), and newcomer Guy Peacock (one for
26). Enthusiastic fielding supported the bowling
effort. Nathan Chaney kept well, Guy Peacock
was outstanding, while Jeremy Gilbert took a
Unfortunately, as has been the case for much of
the season, ill-disciplined batting saw Taihape all
out for 74.
Matt Jacobson completed an excellent all-round
day with top score of 27 (fours and one six).
Wayne Davies (12) was the only other batsman to
make double figures.
Summary: Scaracens 157 (Wayne Davies
three for 27), Matt Jacobson two for 15, Alex
Hawira one for 21, Brad Fannin two for 44 , Guy
Peacock one for 26. Taihape 74 (Matt Jacobson
27, Wayne Davies 12).
FEILDING STORE STOCK SALE
less than usual
Low entries of both sheep and
cattle was again the order of
the day in the latest store sale.
Many potential vendors have
slammed the gates shut as the
grass continues to grow, prefer-
ring to ride out the schedule
falls by growing their stock on
to heavier weights, and yarding
tallies are substantially below
what is usual for this time of
year at the Feilding sale.
This is leading to a firming in
sale prices for those sections
large enough to make a valid
comparison such as the lamb
section and the 18-month cattle
The ewes on offer were
reasonably plentiful but only of
a medium quality, and remain
off the highs of a few weeks ago
as the works buyers are in a
The first pen of lambs, a large
line of 355 shorn hill country
wether lambs from Maata-
Kotahi, Taihape, made what
was to be the day's top money
for store lambs of $114 until
Kevin Grundy's Kevalin Part-
nership sold 92 shorn
Perendale cryptorchids later in
the sale for the same money.
There was an obvious
strengthening in the market as
the sale progressed with lambs
that were kilograms lighter or
even second cuts making
virtually the same money as
heavier lambs earlier in the
A highlight of the lamb sec-
tion was the sale of 184 woolly
capital stock romney/perendale
ewe lambs from M McKinnon,
Mangaweka, which were
knocked down for $127 after
spirited bidding by two buyers.
It is fair to say the lamb
prices lifted by 10 cents per
kilogram above last week.
The 18-month cattle sections
were the only sections to have
reasonable numbers on offer
and also lifted by around 10 cpk
over last week.
The cattle were only medium
types as the better cattle seem
to be being retained by their
current owners, so prices were
A J Clark, Makino Rd, sold
20 angus 18-month steers for
$1085 ($2.41) and P J Valen-
tine, Rangiwahia, sold 11
heifers for $840 ($2.26) as good
indicator lines. Friesian bulls
were again in demand and G E
Braddock Estate, Eketahuna,
sold 11 for $980 ($2.35) and C &
N Higgie, Whanganui, sold 16
slightly older bulls for $990
A small line of five recorded
weaner friesian bulls from
Lightburn Ltd, Kairanga, sold
for $600 ($2.97).
Low numbers are allowing
this market to have some trac-
tion and those vendors who
sought some cash flow today
would have been happy enough
with their returns for lambs
