The committee on foreign cattle report that they have performed the duty assigned them, but not in a manner satisfactorily to themselves; the number of premiums were so few that justice could not be done to competitors.

Most of the animals entered in this class were short horns. There were also some Grade, Devon, Durham and Ayrshire. The number of entries of short-horn bulls over 2


old were 5; of these, two were very superior animals, viz:

No. 284, a bull 5 years old, belonging to Isaac Askew, of Amherstburg, C. W.

No. 24, a two year old bull, belonging to Silas Sly, of Plymouth, Michigan. The committee after a very careful examination, were unanimous in the conclusion that No. 284 showed evidences of the highest breeding, and his handling qualities entitle him to the highest premium. They therefore award to No. 284, Isaac Askew, C. W.,

Diploma and $8 00

1st prem., .

1st prem.,

The number of Short Horn cows competing for premiums in this class, was four, each of which was worthy of the premium offered; but as only one premium was to be awarded, the committee selected the one which, in their opinion, combined the most excellencies, and have awarded to No. 176, John Hamilton, Amherstburgh, C. W.,

. Diploma and $8 00 There was also exhibited some very superior calves, but no premiums offered. The committee would recommend them to the no. tice of the Executive Committee, and recommend that No. 285, Isaac Askew, C. W., be awarded a Diploma.

32, Silas Sly, Plymouth,
All of which is respectfully submitted.
