Barns and Higgie's Sale Yards, Campbelltown

Barns and Higgie's Sale Yards, Campbelltown.

Sales are held every alternate Wednesday with F. R. Jackson's, so that Wanganui has a weekly cattle sale. Barns and Higgie have large enclosures for every description of stock, which are situated about 200 yards from the Bridge, on the River Bank. Cattle, sheep, horses, traps, carriages, and farm produce are sold every sale day, at the yards. The yards are capable of holding 400 head of cattle, and 3000 sheep, and are frequently full. The offices and auction rooms are on Taupo Quay, where sales of furniture, general merchandise, and farm produce, are periodically held.
