GENERAL CARE AND FEEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 2 May 1914
GENERAL CARE AND FEEDING, No branch of dairy farming is more important than the feeding and treat inent of cows; yet none is more gen erally neglected. The direct influence of what the cow eats and drinks upon the milk sheo.produces cannot be too .Rtrongly impressed upon the attention of the farmer. Of equal importance ale the conditions under which food and drink are taken. If cows are chased by dogs or over-driven, or wor tied by boys on their way to pasture, their milk will surely show the effects in a deterioration of quality, If their shelter in winter or shade in summer is insullicient, or the food is not suf ficiently nutritive, the penalty will in variably be paid in a smaller miilk yield. These restrictions are inevi table, One of the greatest ttlistakes far. tnters make is in supposing that they nmay with impunity keep their cows ont "short commons" during tihe win. tcr and that they will fatten up in the spring, and milk as well ats ever. A cow reduced to meagrenoss by se...

SCOURING CALVES. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 2 May 1914
SCOURING CALVES. From experiments carried out In Germany it Is claimed to have been discovered that sour milk given to calves fromn the first to the fifth day of their lives, forms an excellent preo ventivo of scour. The constant losses --sometines of valuable pedigree calves--are well known in most herds, and are attributed to the curdling of the milk in the stomach. The bacteria in sour milk are sulpposed to act bone ficially. In ;iermany it is called yog hurt, produced by adding Bacillus bul garicus to milk. This generates lac tic acid in the stomach of the calves, which acts as a disintfectant, and pro vents the develolmellt of tile hurt. ful bacteria, anld at tile same tilme o sti mulates the activity of tile intestine, probably by producing a ferment that destroys the bacilli which give rise to scour.
AUSTRALIAN DAIRYING. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 2 May 1914
AUSTRALIAN DAIRYING. Within the past ten years the dairy cows of Australia have Increased from one million to above two millions. The butter produced in a single year reach ed about 200,000,000 lbs. The annual export is valued at between £3,000,000 and £1,000,000. No rural industry in Australia is more progressive and none pays larger returns to the farmers, Tile mainstay of dairying is the oeport market, and easily the largest con sumers of Australian butter abroad are the people of the United Kingdom., It might be thought that the expense of carrying butter from Australia to London would be a serious handicap upon butter-making in the Common wealth. As a matter of fact, however, the Australian dairy farmer, in point of cost, is as close to London as the dairy farmers of Ireland or Scotland. The actual contract price of shipplng butter from either Melbourne or Syd ney to I onidon is '.d. per lb.

DAIRYING. CULLING OUT POOR COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 2 May 1914
DAIRYING. CULLING OUT POOR COWS: An English dairylng authority says: The elimination of the worthless an. rmals should be one of the chief ob jects of the cow keeper. Milk records kept carefully and sys tomatically furnish reliable informa tion which enables a cow keeper to de toct these wo'rthlessi animals; and it pays him to dispose of them at, once. There are some farmers, of course, iwho may be tempted to rely wholly oil their own Judgment as far as the milking capacities of any cow Is con cerned; but guess-work of this kind can teach nothing what it costa to feed cows, nor whether such food is being economically fed in relation to the average quantity of milk produced. Milk 'producers peed to study this question of cost of food in relation to milk yield very carefully indeed, Thei fact Is clear that a cow giving, say, 800 gallons per anlnuml costs practic. ally no more to feed than one which only gives 600 gallons; yet, compara tively speaking, there is a loss of £6 on the latt...

WINTER CARE. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 2 May 1914
WINTER CARE. The season is at hand that is the hardest on our ever faithful friend the horse. The raw, damp, windy or extreme cold weather, together with a little neglect, may cause the loss of a valu able horse. When a horse comes in wet from work or drive, rub him well and cover with a warm woollen blanket. Always change to a dry blanket when the horse has cooled. Rub the legs well with a wisp of straw or a towel. Every horse is more or less warm when he comes in from a drive. Never strip off the harness or saddle and lot the horse rush into a fooeed of oats or a trough of water. Never give water or oats to a horse until he has been in the stable some time, and has had some hay. This is a sano and safe practice and much loss can be avoided by on. forcing it, Change the bit of the horse with the sensitive mouth. Take off the cheek, or let it out. Try a large rub. ber-covored bit. If the horse "drives on one line," look to his teeth at once; a sharp tooth Is nuually the cause.

VETCHES OR TARES. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 2 May 1914
VETCHES OR TARES. Vetches or tares are of two distinct kinds-those sown in the autumn for spring or early summer use, and those sown in the spring whtllh come in after the winter sowing is used up. There are few crops which yield such a large amount of succulent green food, though perhaps for special pur poses other crops are preferable, but for general use and under all condi tions tares cannot be beaten. The amount of seed required per acre is about three bushels of tares and one bushel of oats or rye, the latter belng sown to keep the tares off the ground somewhat and so prevent rotting in wet weather. In order to gain the full benefits from growing this greenl crop the sow lngs should be made at different Inter vals, beginning as early as possible, when the land can be prepared, so that successive cuttings are obtained without allowing them to become ripe. Tares are more suitable for soiling purposes than grazing,as this latter plan is very wasteful, much of the food being tramp...

THE VOYAGE OF THE "MEDINA," RICKSHAWING UNDER THE MOON. Grand Oriental Hotel, Colombo, Ceylon. April 9, 1914. Mr. Robert J. Whalley writes from above address (though not necessarily for publication): Yesterday was our first day ashore since leaving Australia, and a wonder fully interesting day it was. But let me say here how very delighted we were after returning to the steamer in the West to receive a telegram from North cote, also one from Preston. Any lurk Ing misgivings we may have had were entirely removed by the generous assur ances contained in these last messages, and we loft Australian shores in a joy ous frame of mind, satisfied that every thing would go well in our absence. Strange and incredible as it may seem, during the nine days occupied in crossing the Great Australian Bight and the vast Indian Ocean, with its varying sensa tions and changes, we scarcely once gave our Australian interests a thoueht. so engrossed and-pleased wore we with tne new and novel experiences ...

THE FURTHER ADVENTURES OF JUDITH. [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 2 May 1914
THE FURTHER ADVENTURES OF JUDITH, Dear Mr. Editor,-In accordance with my promise of last w'eek I write you further as to our trip to Yann. Our journey commenced on Monday last. The trip from the Queen City north ward was totally devoid of interest until we arrived at the boundary between Southcote and Preston-sur-Darebin, The immediate surroundings just here are extremely disappointing and depres sing, the roads being ill kept, and prom enades carrying inches of grey dust, which, rising in clouds, coats everything in the vicinity with its clinging particles. The Preston Government is evidently not seized with the importance of keep ing its main gateway in anything ap proaching an attractive condition, which could very easily be done at small expense in the form ofrockeries, &c, It was sometime before our party recovered from the depression this palp able neglect caused us. But here a sur prise awaited us. We descended for refreshments at a curious v-shaped building at the ju...
THE BUSY BEE [Newspaper Article] — Preston Leader — 2 May 1914
THE BUSY BEE Winter is close upon us. In the coolest of our districts bees have al ready retired, and before the month1 is out the retirement will be general. During the warmer portions of the days, especially if the sun is bright, the boos will still venture out, but they will not wander far from home ii last month's advice has been 's tended to, i.e., if they are supplied with sufflicient honey to carry them on till spring, or the coming breeding season. If bees mre forced to go for aging on bright winter'days, the sud. den atmospheric changes prevent the return of many, and a good supply of food in the hive is the only remedy. II also forms one of the best methods to keep up the warmth of the hive. On every occasion when the weather is bright and drying, remove the wraps, etc., from the hives, and spread them out to dry. External dampness produces internal dampness, which is one of the most prolific causes of di sease. Just before sundown return the protections to the hives. The ...
