The CCFR collaboration reports a precise measurement of electroweak parameters derived from the ratio of neutral-current to charged-current cross-sections in neutrino-nucleon scattering at the Fermilab Tevatron. We determine $\sin^2\theta_W^{\rm \scriptstyle (on-shell)}=0.2236\pm0.0028{\rm\textstyle
(expt.)}\pm0.0030{\rm\textstyle (model)}$ for $M_{\rm \scriptstyle top}=175$ GeV, $M_{\rm \scriptstyle Higgs}=150$ GeV. This is equivalent to $M_W=80.35\pm0.21$ GeV. The good agreement of this measurement with Standard Model expectations implies the exclusion of additional $\nu\nu qq$ contact interactions at $95\%$confidence at a mass scale of 1-8 TeV, depending on the form of the contact interaction.
