COASTAL FARMERS AND LUCERNE HAY. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 November 1914

COASTAL FARMERS AND LUCERNE HAT. The Coastal Farmers' Cooperative So ciety has given 'further evidence of the in terest it takes in the man on the land by the fight it is putting up against the charge of 3/6 per ton heretofore levied on the farmer for the delivery of hay, straw or chaff sold at the Sydney Goods Yards. Recently a notification appeared in the metropolitan press to the effect that the Society had determined to no longer de liver lucerne hay or lucerne chaff at the expense of the consignor. The charge has always constituted more or less of a grievance. For some years past the Farm ers and Settlers' Conference has annually passed a resolution in favor of the aboli tion of the charge. The matter has, how ever, been worked up on behalf of lucerne growers by a committee of three repre senting respectively Mudgee, Tam worth, and the Hunter River. It is to be hoped that the effort of the Coastal Farmers' Society in this connection meets with the success it deserves. The sale ...

Poultry Demonstration Farm. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 November 1914

Poultry Demonstration Farm. About twelve months ago Mr. R. H. Stewart, now of Farm No. 558, approach ed the Commissioner with a view to tak ing up a 'farm on the Murrumbidgeei Irri gation Areas and establishing thereon a model poultry farm. Every assistance which could be given Mr. Stisiwart within the regulations was furnished, and the Commissioner has no cause 10 regret his decision to help as much as possible in properly starting Mr. Stewart's enter prise. Although he has been in occupa tion of his block for a comparatively short space of time, Mr. Stewart has work ed exceedingly hard, and the place) is un doubtedly a credit to him. Practically the great bulk of the irrigable land (21 acres) on the farm has baen cleared and cultivated, and at the present time it is either carrying a crop of grain., or, better still, of lucerne. In addition, Mr. Stewart has himself constructed 14 breeding pens, the dimen sions of which are 45 feet by 28 feet They are enclosed with wire netting, an...

The Pig. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 November 1914

?' The Pig. BY H. R. ALEXANDER. There are a considerable number of sows now on the Areas, and they are in creasing every day. Berkshires are the breed most in favor. For the time being the bacon market, which we have to look to, is the New S'outh Wales local one, and for that markeit a pig is required o'f a medium size, running when well fattened to about 125 lbs. at about six months old. To secure a pig of this type, it is advisable to use one of the finer or smaller breeds of pigs as a sire. The Berkshire boar is ideal for this pur pose, as is also the Middle York. On the Richmond River, the Poland China is held in considerable esteem by some bree ders. From a bacon curing pt»int of view, however, I prefer the Berkshire or the Middle York to the Poland China, which is a pig notorious for the excess of fat it carries compared to lean meat. This fact is an objection tio my mind, since on the Areas we have to endeavor to turn out a first-class marketable bacon, as uniform as it can b...

The Importance of Seed Selection. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 November 1914

The Importance of Seed Selection. It can be taken as an axiom5 that good crops are to a very large extent depend ent on the quality of the seed used. Al though the preparation of the soil may be excellent, its quality good, and the application of water all that could be de sired, good results will not follow unless the seed be a good quality. A great deal of carelessness is often shown in regard to this matter. A saving on the price of seed is very often bad business. An ad ditional 1/ or 2/ spent in that direction may resu.lt in many pounds gained when the harvest is reaped. In a recent pamphlet published on this matter by the Utah Agricultural College, the statement Is~ maHe^haT~Oie"yield of a crop of corn may be very easily reduced from 25 per cent/ to 50 per cent, by plant ing poor seed. Points to be Kept in Mind.-In connec tion with seed selection, the following points should be remembered: (1) Seed should be free from dirt, weed seeds or any other impurity. (2) Freedom from di...

WALNUTS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 November 1914

WALNUTS. American growers this year are expect ing to get excellent prices for walnuts, owing to the European war upsetting the French harvesting arrangements. Some figures recently published in the Califor nia "Cultivator" as to the actual quantity of walnuts produced are astonishing. It is stated, for example, that the French annual production amounts to no less than 15,000 tons, and the Californian pro duction is from 9000 to 10,000 tons. Walnuts are slow coming into bearing, but the trees at the Yanco Experiment Farm are doing exceptionally well. They grow to an enormous size, and yield heavy crops, but the question of the labor troubles incidental to picking will have to be seriously considered by growers on the Areas.

DAIRY SCIENCE SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 November 1914

DAIRY SCIENCE SCHOOL. A Dairy Science School has just been held at the Lee ton Butter Factory, Mr. M. A. O'Callaghan being the officer in charge. The. course was intended mainly for the instruction of butter factory managers, but it contained a good deal of informa tion that could with-benefit be passed on to cream suppliers to any factory. Very interesting, for example, was the de monstration given on the afternoon of Monday, the 12th instant, in neutralising and pasteurising. A mixed vat of cream, in some of which acidity had developed to the extent of perhaps 6 per cent., was treated in this way with a view to its im provement. The lecturer explained in the first instance how the development of acidity in cream was due to the decom position of albuminoids owing to bacteri ological action. He made a point of the fact that neutralising and pasteurising did not remove the deleterious substances which had been formed in the cream, but the acidity which had developed was count eracted...

Correspondence. THE LEASING OF LUCERNE LAND. To the Editor. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 November 1914

Correspondence. THE LEASING OF LUCERNE LAND. To the Editor. Sir,- ! shall be obliged if you will allow me to contradict a rumor that is in cir culation to the effect that we have lbt our lucerne lands on agistment to a certain stud sheep owner; neither have we any intention of doing so. I may say that we were approached by an agent, who stated that he had been deputed by the owner in question to procure agistment ; this we refused. It was then suggested that we should take the stud sheep at so much per head to feed with our lucerne as we deemed best, but the amount offered was so absurd that we turned it down. This is quite a dif ferent matter than to grant control of our land to outsiders, to perhaps riiih the same. This settlement can be of much assistance to stud owners and others, but they must be willing to pay what is a tair value for such, or we can do better by feeding our lucerne into our own stock - Faithfully yours, THOS D. WILLIAMS. Egremont, Yanco, 14th October, 1914.

Fruit Culture. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 November 1914

Fruit Culture. (By W. JA Allen.) Disbudding Vines.-It will still be neces sary for settlers to give this matter atten tion during the present month. The in structions given last month should be followed. After November, however, there should be little further trouble as re gards suckering. : Tying Up.-Care should be taken to see that all canes which are making a rapid growth are placed on the trellis wires so that they cannot be blown about and broken by heavy winds. - Sulphuring.-Although the season has been dry, oidium may make its appear ance. If so, it will be necessary to sul phur. All settlers who have vines two years old (and which are showing a little fruit) should procure a small quantity of powdered sulphur or flowers of sulphur, and dust their vines by placing a small quantity in cheese cloth or some other receptacle which when shaken over the, vines will enable the sulphur to be evenly distributed. The best time to sul phur is the early morhlng. The sulphur ing should be...

A New Australian Wine. ARE THE AREAS TO PRODUCE IT? [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 November 1914

A New Australian Wine. ARE THE AREAS TO PRODUCE IT ? The lecture recently delivered by M. B lunntratLe^o C the HftScal^S^'ners^ dealt at length with this very interesting subject, and the lecturer's remarks are quoted hereunder. Incidentally some new light'was thrown on the subject of distillation in the Areas, and reading between the lines it will be readily seen that the viticulturist's opin ion on that point coincides with that ex pressed recently by the Commissioner, viz., that 'the outlook is not promising. Of the five million gallons produced at present, the distilleries are treating a large part of the grapes which are sur plus as far as the local market is con cerned. The lecturer's advice, to en deavor to produce a new. light winie, for which he feels convinced a market could be found, is therefore earnestly commen ded to the notice of settlers who are con sidering the question of wine-growing tior distillation purposes.

A FORECAST FOR NEXT SEASON. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 November 1914

A FORECAST FOR NEXT SEASON. The metropolitan daily and other newspapers have recently been making re ference to a forecast of Mr. H. A. Hunt, Commonwealth Meteorologist, regarding next season. Mr. Hunt points out that the season following a drought, particularly a severe One, has often been marked by abundant rains* He gives the following figures in support: Victoria. Average Rainfall, inches. 1888 (drought year) .. 19.7 1889 31.71 1902 (drought year) .. 18.55 1903 27.45 New South Wales. 1888 13.4 1889 29.25 1902 . 14.00 1903 24.00 He goes on to say that there is a scien tific explanation of the fact, which may be accepted. "When the interior of the continent is very dry the solar radiation in the summer becomes intense, causing an inflow of moist winds from the tropics." It is worthy of note that Mr. Clement Wragge is reported to have prophesied that the present drought would last for a number of years.
