HC Deb 24 June 1924 vol 175 c263W

asked the Minister of Agriculture the average price per head in Canada of the store cattle which are being shipped to Great Britain?


I have no information as to the prices paid in Canada for the store cattle actually shipped to this country. Official reports of the prices of store cattle in Canada indicate that good feeding cattle of 1,000 1bs. live weight have been selling at Toronto during last month at an average of about 68 dollars, whilst the average price of similar cattle at Winnipeg hag been about 50 dollars and at Calgary about 47 dollars.
