Judge Moule, in the County Court on Monday, delivered his reserved judgment in the case in which John Hannon, farmer, claimed £209 from Al^xaDdcr Duncan McLarty, "Yarraby, farmer, for the loss of four horses and injury to five other horseR, owing to the wrongful act of McLarty in leaving wheat unattended on the roadside. Judgment was given for Hannon for £160, with costs to lie fixed. A counter claim by McLarty was dis missed. Judge Moule said that ho found, as a fact, that Hannon had not known that the waggon load of wheat hud been left on the highway on this occasion. If lie had known of its presence he would have voluntarily incurred the risk of injury, and could not have been heard to complain. Hannon had snSered through the wrongdoing of McLarty, and," in his opinion, was entitled to damages for such wrongdoing. Judge Moule esti mated such damage at £160.

MILKING MACHINE TESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 22 May 1914

MILKING MACHINE TESTS. Bulletin 3511 of the New York Ex ' periment Station at Geneva reports extended tests of the efficiency of the milking machine compared with hand milking ; and finds that it does not . measurably influence the yield of milk. That is, cows in the station herd milked alternately by hand and ' by the machine in 71 full lactation ! periods showed no more fluctuation ] in }ield due to the method of milkiug I than would naturally occur from year j to year in a herd milked coutinuous 1 ly by hand. j As the station lm.s already proved \ that clean milk can be produce^ by tho j machine if simple precautions are ob i served, the use or non-use of. the ' machine would seem to be merely an j economic question whose factors arc ' cost of installation and up-ke«p, 1 availability and cost of labour, size ! of herd and general convenience. 1 The bulletin does not discuss many * of these factors, but gives some care fully collected data regarding tho time neciTHsary in milking ...

THE DAIRY EXPERIMENTS WITH CREAM SEPARATORS. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 22 May 1914

THE DAIRY KXI'KniMPVMTS WITH CRKAM SEPARATORS. The pencral opinions held with re gard to speed and temperature dur ing the employment of separators have been put to test at the Experi mental Station of the University of Missouri. The "experiments showed that an increase in the spee-il of a separator leads to a higher propor tion of skimmed milk and to a hiph er percentage of fat_ in the cream, and, within ordinary limits, the higher the speed the less is ths amount of fat remaining ii the skim med milk. It is further declared that, con trary to pcneral belief, a reduction in the temperature of the milk oc casions a higher proportion of skim med milk and a small amount of cream with a higher percrntag^ of fat. The effect is said to bo still fur ther emphasised when the separator in adjusted to deliver cream with a hii^h fat content. A third conclusion which the in vestigators adduced was that the amount of fat in cream varies in di rect proportion to the composition of the milk. The ...
