FARM AND DAIRY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 10 January 1914
FARM AND DAIRY NOTE8. The legumes—lucerne, olovcr, cow peas, Held peas, soy boans, etc.—may be used for silage, but are not as de sirable as corn and the sorghums. Tlicy serve an excellent purpose when mixed with maize or sorghums. Where there Is an abundimcc of'other crops /or the silo the legumes are best used as bay. The best maize silage, pound for pound, Is made from maize that will mature a good crop of ears. Immature feed of any kind is not as good as mature feel. Milk'is a perfect medium for bac teria development, but immediate cooling and maintenance of a low temperature will prevent the growth of bactcrla in such numbers as will injure its keeping qualities and fltnoss for use. As a preventative " for ticks the "Breeders' Gazette" recommends u large spoonful of sulphur, added to a Utile more than a pint of salt, and thoroughly mixed. The sheep may not like It at first, but soon come to eat it, and begin to show signs of Im provement. For pigs atTected with lice put a good ...

RULES FOR THINNING FRUIT. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 10 January 1914
RULES FOR THINNING FRUIT. The question of thinning fruit is an ever-present one to the orchardist. One ruie which is practised to sonic extent is for the grower to size up all the conditions and determine how many cases of fruit the tree should I carry.- It is a small matter then to determine how many fruits there should be left on the tree. The re sults at first are likely to be consid erably off the estimate, but this |s very largely a matter of practice am1 variation of seasons. ; Another rule which might be-taken in conjunction with the previous one, is to thin plums to about two, two and a-ha.lf, or three inches, peaches four to eight, depending on the earli ness of the variety; pears and ap ples, live to seven inches apart. .
