THE DAIRYMAN. MILK FAT VALUES. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 18 April 1906

THE DAIRYMAN. By Frank McCaffrey. MILK FAT VALUES. \ According to the 'Journal of Agricul ture.' of South Australia, there are many natural causes which bring- about varia tions in the fat contents of milk, and ? among- these many causes of variations in fat percentages in the milk supply are : — 'Careless' or indifferent milking1; too long periods between hours of milking ; rough treatment or driving the cows too far to the milking yard; irregular water or feeding' ; bad water supply ; sudden chang-es in temperature ; marked changes in the food supply; tlie addition of a number of newly-calved cows to the herd ; changing the milkers ; the general health of the cow ; the condition in which the milk is delivered at the factory.' * *'''* The following- are stated as being- well Jfc*- known to only a special few, namely : — '(i).

DANISH DAIRY CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 18 April 1906

DANISH DAIRY CATTLE. *w,, In 'Country Life,' ,21/1 i/'o3, Mr. R. Hedger Wallace has contributed a very interesting article on the Danish breeds ?of dairy cattle. Mr. Wallace says : — 'Two distinct breeds of dairy cattle are to be found in the dairies,, byres, or s'tables in Denmark. The first and, per haps, best known is the Red Danish dairy loreed, its homeland being the Danish isles, while on the mainland is found I .a black and white breed, known as the 'I Jutland breed. The Red Danish is in a j sense a modern breed, for it only received I this distinctive name about 1S78, it hav 1 ing been called previously the Seeland ' !? and Fionie, -also the Laaland-Falster I breeds. ? This Red Danish breed repre- ? .iJL sents to-day ' chree types— i.e... that of iKSy Angel, Slesvig, and Ballum, and it has ^f\. been developed carefully as a dairy breed, ;'? especially in the islands of Funen and 1 Seeland. The Jutland breed, on the other hand, represents a mucfi .older type, for it is simply...

COW FEEDING IN DENMARK. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 18 April 1906

COW FEEDING IN DENMARK. . Beyond question dairying is carried on more cheaply in Australia than in any other part of the world. Of course, hired labour influences it to some extent, and the wages ruling in the Commonwealth may be higher than in many other coun tries, but it must be remembered that the great bulk of the work on dairy farms is done by the families of the owners, and they get very little indeed in the form of hard cash for the services they perform. Our great rival in the English market is Denmark, but it must cost the Danish farmer a great deal more to produce a pound of butter than it does the Australian farmer. In Denmark the cows are fed the whole year round, a liberal allowance being given in the summer months, when the animals are allowed out on the pastures, while. during the win ter they are kept under cover all the time, and stall-fed. This, of course, involves an enormous amount of labour, and an expenditure for foodstuffs that will never be necessary in Aust...

RED RANGE. Record Rains. — A Live Branch. — Vigor- ous Work. The weather has been exceptionally fine and mild during the past few weeks, and everything presents a spring-like ap pearance. An abundance of rain has fallen since the beginning of the year — something over 14' inches being regis tered. Matters both pastoral and agricultural are consequently showing indications of being above the usual standard, and pros pects of the farmers are very encouraging.

OLLA PODRIDA. (Political and Otherwise.) THE HARVESTER TRUST. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 18 April 1906

OLLA PODRIDA. (Political and Otherwise.) By Cypher. THE HARVESTER TRUST. By agreement with the International Harvester Company, the local manufac turers of harvesters arranged to fix a common price for their machines, in or der presumably that the natural tendency of competition to reduce prices to fair market value would be defeated. Thus machines which, on sworn evi rlnnm.. rost in labor and material not more than £31, were sold to the farmers for j£8i. Not content, however, with a gross profit of nearly 200 per cent, it ap parently occurred to the local members of the combine that if they could shut out their American competitors by obtaining a prohibitive duty, it would be still further to their advantage. What that advantage consisted in would be difficult to guess, unless it meant either that prices were to be maintained at their ex isting level, or that the farmers were to be further exploited by an increase in price. However, the American company naturally objected, and prac...

PLOUGH TRIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 18 April 1906

PLOUGH TRIAL. A Neurea correspondent writes : — At Mr. Richard Spargo's farm, Baker's Swamp, a very successful trial of Messrs. Nicholson and Morrow's Union threefur row stump-jump disc plough was held. Farmers were fairly ... well represented. The hardest piece of land on the farm was chosen, in which, to the surprise of all the spectators, the plough did excel lent work. It was drawn by four horses, and these appeared to do their work with ' case, ploughing at a depth of from 5 to 7 inches. One horse worked in the fur row, the plough at the -same time having a straight and direct draught. This in itself is an important feature, and a ma terial advantage over other makes, as it considerably reduces the labor of the off side horse, which usually walks on the heavy ploughed land in order to have a Straight draught. The entire pulverisa tion of the soil is accomplished by the means of a mould-board scraper, which is attached to the beam and fits closely over the front of the disc. By ...

FARM IMPLEMENTS. THE "SUNRISE" DIGGING ROLLER. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 18 April 1906

FARM IMPLEMENTS. THE 'SUNRISE' DIGGING ROLLER. A firm that we gladly welcome to our business columns are Messrs. Ritchie Bros., of Auburn. This firm for some time have not been giving the attention as in years past to the manufacture of imple ments, but with the return of better seas ons for the farmer comes a return of the old spirit, and hence the renewed energy that is now entering into their implement department. Old hands will remember with pride the Ritchie ploughs of thirty and forty years ago. The father of the Ritchies was the first to make ploughs in Australia. What ploughs they were, too! liow they stood the rough usage and wear and tear of a new country's demands ! For future issues we have some very in teresting anecdotes in connection there with. Meanwhile the sons, Messrs. James D. and John Ritchie, are throwing the same grit into the business as of old, and farmers can rely on a sound, strongly and we/11-made implement at a fair price. Ritchie Brothers' prices are ne...

THE GRAFTON STATE FARM. A DISGRACE TO THE DEPARTMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 18 April 1906

THE GRAFTON STATE FARM. A DISCRACE TO THE DEPARTMENT. At the last meeting of the council of the C.P. and A. Society the president stated that a few days before he had visited the Experimental Farm, and to say that he was astounded at what he saw was using a mild term. The dairy was a standing disgrace, not only to the Government, but to the district. Having had experience, he could confidently state that there is not a worse conducted dairy in the district, either held by owner or tenant farmer. He considered how they should act, and thought the best way was to strengthen the manager's hands. If they communi cated with the Member on the subject, possibly he would induce the Government to take some action. The farm is in an excellent position, and with a little ex penditure could be made one of the finest dairy farms in the State. The existing buildings are altogether inadequate, and are not a credit to anyone. The council should take action, and if nothing were done, it would be bet...
