FARM AND DAIRY PRODUCE. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 5 July 1898
FA.RlM AND DAIRY PRODUCE.. The butter market remiained steady on Friday, with a fairly good demand at generallyunaltered attes.- A slight irreg ularity in quality is noticeable, ail( in some instances it is found necessary to get butter into consumption quickly so as to avoid keeping it. The variation in quality is regaruded as being the result either of cream not being brought to the factories so regularly as it should be, or of the use of fresh-grown and sometimes weedy feed by the cattle, or of new cattle being drawn upon Victorian factory butter sold at Is 4l to is 5d, and the choicest brands, includ ing Western and prints, realised up to ls 54d. Dairy batter sold at lid to is 2d for good primhe qualities, and up to is 3d for choice, while the best separator butter realises is 3d to is 31d. A few nedium and odd lots sold dowvn to 9d.

DISTRICT NEWS. LARDNER. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 5 July 1898
DISTRICT NEWS. (FRo-u VARIOUS C(ORRE.SiPONDENTS). LARDNER. The district of Lardner is regaining its usual prosperous aspect. The oat crops that are up look healthy, plough ing is in course of progress, and the new sown glass is above ground, but, although showing a bright green, it is very short growth, being very slow the last few cold weeks. The cattle are missing the shelter of the scrub, which was burnt by the late fires. In one paddock I saw a nmuber of cows with rugs on, made of corn sacks, and am told that the cows are greatly benefitted by them, as they keep the cattle dry and warm. There is a greater demand for straw and hay this season than there has ever been before in the district, and teams are kept busy carting it. The assemblies which are held in the Lardner Mechanics' Institute on the first Friday of every month nearest full moon, besides being well conducted and enjoyable, are proving a success financially, the committee having lately purchased a piano from Mr S. Ja...

A FUNNY STORY. ABOUT A MOB OF BULLOCKS. [Newspaper Article] — West Gippsland Gazette — 5 July 1898
A FUNNY STORY. ABOUT A 3101 OF IUWLLOCKS. The supply of fat cattle is greatly below the demand in the Melbourne market; and city butchers are hard pit to it to keep up with their cus tomers: This will possibly continue until the spring grass gets its work in and fills out the backward frames of the attenuated bovines. But, after all, the question .of " fatness " is principally one of price. "Wait," remarked a well-known cattle man the other day, " until prices go up a couple of pounds. You will be astonished where the fats come from." Then he told a pre-Adamite story as an instance. In company with a friend, he was driving a mob of cattle to Traralgon, the points of which were so visible that they caused a blush to rise as they passed any signs of civilisation. Just priorto reaching his destination he met a brother beef waltzer,, driving what ajpeaired to be a mob of galvan ised magpie cages. Enquiry, however, elicited the information that they were bullocks of that period; and the ...
