Excellent Steers Sold

Event date: Feb 5, 1859

Mr. Roswell Sargeant of this town sold two pairs of steers which for size, form, and general appearance can hardly be matched in this vicinity. One pair four years old weighed 4160, and the other pair three years old weighed 3680. The two pair brought the handsome sum of $400. If there is any other farmer that can show better results of judicious stock growing we will chronicle his success with greatest pleasure.
