Poultry. USEFUL GLEANINGS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 7 May 1881
§mdtrg+ USEFUL GLEANINGS. Hints fob. Potjxtby Breeders. — To those who understood the deterioration of stock from breeding in-and-in, we hardly need to give the advice which follows in this article. But many poultry raieers have had little or no experience in the care of domestic animals of a larger growth, and consequently have had no occasion to in form themselves of the general, or of the particular, rules that govern stock-raising. These well-defined rules apply in a greater or less decree to all farm animals, and include the smaller poultry tribe, as well as the bovine and other species of beasts that seem to come more directly under the head of domestic animals. Among the essential points in relation to the manage ment of all these creatures, and which must be understood and acted upon by all suc cessful stock - raisers, are — proper and sufficient food, kind treatment, regularity in supplying daily returning wants, and care that by judicious crossing and the in fusion of good...
HINTS FOR FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 7 May 1881
HESTS FOR FARMERS. Feeding Houses. — Feed horses accord ing to their age and the work required of them. Full feeding and little work dis orders the digestive organs. Sslect only such hay as is the best quality, as that of inferior quality is dear at any price, as there is no proper nourishment in it. ^Feeding Swine. — The resulta of feeding ewine with cooked corn and meal, instead of the uncooked article, are well known to most farmers. The gain is fully 20 per cent., -which much more than covers the extra cost attendant upon this course. Supply and Dksl/ln'd. — First learn what your soil will produce, and then study the wants of the market which you are to supply and upon which you must depend for tbe sale of your produce, and then try to produce ihe best of its class, and a3 cheaply as any one else can, is a good general plan for the farmer to pursus. A Useful Oejtjient. — Red iodine ointment is the most useful ointment for the cure of splints, spavins, ring bones and hardened tum...
CARE OF COWS AT CALVING TIME. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 7 May 1881
CAKE OF COWS AT CALVING TIHE. [Ej the Hon. Hekhv Lewis, ia the PhUaleljihix tPaUy Aeioi.l A cow's food for ot least two weeks before parturition should be somewhat luxative. A daily feed of roots in sulliciout quantity to leguiate the bowels is the safest, cheapest, and best to be fed in con nection vriih dry fodder. But when the lime of calvirjff does not occur until after pasturing begins, great danger may be apprehended unless the cow i3 kept up the whole or part of each day, and fed on less nutritious food than her pasture affords. The danger is greatly increased liy becoming too fat, and should be guarded against in some way. At any season, and always when the udder fills with milk, becomes swelled or inflamed before calving, the cow should be milked at regular intervals, and as often as necessity may require. For a caked or an iaflimed bag, or sore teat?, frequent applications of linseed oil and a thorough rubbing of the bfig is aagood ns anv treatment I have tried. Prompt att...

AGRICULTURAL NOTES. After tbe welcome rainfall of Ia9t week the weather set in warm and dry, and another downpour wa^ anxiously looked for to help on the feed which in some plasea has commenced to spring.

New South Wales has had a good fall of rain also, and agricultural and pastoral affairs are both looking promising. In Tasmania, too, the weathe? has bsen favorab...

A short walk from the eea takes one np to the pretty little village, which is one of the favorite resorts not merely of foreigners, but of Italians, on account of its mineral waters. It is now half in rains, and even those houses which have stood are crippled by elisions. The streets are far rowed by fijfares, and . tbe great propor tion of the population struck by pauio have fled to the oountry, where tents have been erected, and blankets and bidding have been provided by public institutions. There were no indications of the approach of such a disaster. A frightful crash was heard, and in a moment the bouses, calculated at about 300, fell, bury ing...
