"Stock and Land" newspaper sign, displayed in the Administration Offices at Newmarket Saleyards.

Stock and Land is a publication providing coverage of prime stock, store stock and stud stock activity, as well as the reporting of all commodity price news and commercial store stock features. Stock and Land operated a publication office at the Newmarket Saleyards to cater for the needs of people trading in livestock.

Norman Ferguson was connected with the Stock and Station Journal in Bendigo when he was invited to start a Melbourne-based stock and land newspaper. The first edition of Stock and Land was on the streets on 1 July 1914. The paper still survives giving a wide range of news and views of concern to those involved with the pastoral, agricultural, horticultural, wool, machinery and property trading.
