AN OPEN LETTER TO BINGARA FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911

AN OPEN LETTER TO BINGARA FARMERS. (By Courtesy of "The Land") Dear oirs,-1 think you will recog nise that the farmer1 and settler is, as a rule, the most hardworking, most persevering, and most abused of any class of people in this or any other State, and I tliimc you will also ad mit that, as a rule, he is the most careless and neglectful of all people of anything outside his farm or stock. The result is, the man on the land who, under the present state of politics, is to be the greatest sull'erer, is certainly the least organised and least prepared to fight for his rights. The present is a time of organisa tion ; almost every profession, and certainly every trade, is organised to fight for its interests, and, when needed, the members of each organisa tion will rally round the flag, stand ing shoulder to shoulder, sacrificing time and money for the principles they have at stake. Is it so with the farmer and settler ? I regret to say that it is not. Not more than one out of every t...

NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911

NOTES. The annual conference of the Co operative Dairy . Factory. ..-Managers'-.. and Secretaries' Association will be held June 13 to 17 inclusive. The, Commerce Act Avill probably be warmly discussed; The opponents of compulsory grading are. not going to let the new regulations stand if agitation can alter the position. Report of a meet ing of a section of the trade, and the London Butter Committee, to hand, declares against the compulsory grad-' i"g The factory managers and secre taries' association is also against the new rules apparently, :but . in L this respect they are probably only echo ing the directors' opinions. ; It is only natural the trade should buck if they reckon the new system is going to injure them. With the experience -of-New;- Zealand to go by, it seems a pity all the: same that the compulsory grading of butter is not given a chance to show what it will do. v Compulsory grading has built up the dairying industry in1 New ' Zea-: land, and it will be strange if....

DAIRYING UNDER IRRIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911

DAIRYING UNDER IRRIGATION. i' The departmental experts in Vic toria who are 'endeavouring to ar range pamphlets in the hope of push ing forward the irrigation schemes of the State are probing the. possi bilities of dairying very energetically. The inquiries are most promising. In deed, they are so attractive that dairying is likely to .become one ol the chief stays of the irrigation dis tricts, both in Victoria and New boutli Wales.. For one thing the re turns are quick, and they are regular -if the dairymen is up to date. All the well-known : fodders, such as' lu cerne and maize, do remarkably well under intense conditions, and as the. settler on irrigated land wiJl need to make tlie best use of his small areas he looks like becoming a competitor in the butter market which others in the line will be called upon to sincerely respect. Even in the case of the settler , who proposesto grow fruit, cows and pigs will be found to work in conveniently with his arrange ments. As- a result o...

BUTTERS IN COMPARISON. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911

BUTTERS IN COMPARISON. Tlie co-operative factory managers did good work at their conference in Sydney recently, by proposing to hold a butter competition. But the butter should be procured from the parcels offered for shipment, so as to })revent any special 'preparation. This is the plan carried out by the Sydney Royal Society. The boxes for com petition are picked from some con signment or other, and then sub jected to the cold storage conditions. Mr. .Russell,- of the, jN'ew Zealand Loan Co., made a very good suggestion, that parcels of Danish, Siberian, and Argentine sliould be secured and para ded side by side with Australian for comparison. It is thought that by this plan manufacturers will be able to see what sort of stuff their rival competitors ])ut into the Tooley-street field, and test the keeping qualities Avith others. Some years ago, par cels of Danish butter "were exhibited in Victoria, with instructive results. The Danish product is not nearly so strong in character,....

Dairying. TEN YEARS' BEHIND. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911

Dairying. TEN YEARS' BEHIND. Several of the agricultural associa tions continue the class in tlieir show schedule for the best dairy bull in the; yard, irrespective of breed. It is, indeed, a stupid arrangement. It cannot be justified in any sense. On the other hand, it is to be depreca ted; because it really serves no good purpose. Besides that, it has on more than one occasion driven men away from the show ring, which was a loss to the association, and a loss to the man himself. The trouble is that when all the different champions of the section are paraded, one or more judges have to make a selection with out a,ny competitive standard to guide them. The points of a Jersey and the points of a Shorthorn are not. in any way in harmony. The same thing applies to other breeds. So far as any specific direction is con cerned, alf the beef bulls at the show might as well be roiinded up, too Naturally, the judge will lean to wards his favourite breed, and award, the v, prize, accordingly....

ANOTHER COMBINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911

ANOTHER COMBINE. The demand for store sheep, main ly /wethers, lias been so great .during the past three months that prices lvave risen from 25 to 50 per cent. The reason, naturally, is the super abundance of. grass. Queensland lias been- the largest buyer of wethers, and several of her graziers and specu lators have purchased south of the border for close on 300 miles. The three largest purchasers have been Messrs. E. Jarrett, Harry Brooks, and E. J. Blume. The latter has just bought 40,000, and is negotiating for another 40,000. Whilst there is an outcry against the alleged grip on our meat trade by the American Meat Trust, we have in our midst three or four men who are doing their best to capture the store wethers business, which, if they do, will mean dear mutton in the near future. Lord Londonderry, speaking at a Chamber of Agriculture gathering in England, said that, although the prices for light horses had deteriora ted through the expanding use of the motor-car, there was no...

SHEARING TALLIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911

SHEARING TALLIES. Information is to hand from Cen tral Queensland that Harry Living stone lias been offered £4 per week, and expenses both ways, to give slieep-shearing demonstrations in Great Britain during Coronation time, but the offer was declined, as Liv ingstone says he can earn more by sticking to shearing during the sea son. It is not generally known that there ":'is%',band of fast shearers, the number of which is yearly increasing, between whom there is a rivalry as to the greatest number of sheep that can be shorn in a day of eight hours, and the total during the season. The greatest number yet done in one season was 40,000, by Jimmy Power, in 1902, and he shore 315 in one day. D. Cooper, one of the cracks of to day, has beaten this by one, and a New Zealand shearer is reported to have shorn 322 sheep by machine last season, but he took nine hours to do them. The hand-shearing record is that of Jack Howe, who shore 321 sheep in eight hours. There have been better tallies, ...

Illawarra Dairy Cattle Association. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911

Illawarra DairyCattle Association. Owing to the weekly occurrence of A. & H.. Society Shows in the Illa Avarra and Shoalhaven districts since the beginning of ''this yeai\'{writes Mr. Frank McCafVrey), the several members of the 111awami'. dairy cat tle Association have been too busy Av/.nning prizes at these shows, to de vote their time to cow testing. How ever, there are always a few who find; time to have their cows tested, .and they will, in the end, reap the reward of their industry. Of coursej there is much to be said in favovir of the show-frequenter, as lie is out to learn. But our shows are not by any means, as educational to the dairyman as they might be .easily made, if a little commonsense ?was exercised by the majority of the Show committee-men. To begin, all grand champion prizes should .be .abol ished forthwith, as it is the extreme height of folly to expect a Jersey man to vote a prize to a cow of the IllaAvarra breed, and vice'versa;'" The .same thing applie...

PROOF POSITIVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 March 1911

PROOF POSITIVE. If there was any need to look for further proof as to the value of pas teurisation as an enemy to tuber culosis, New Zealand has just sup plied it. The Dominion has in re cent years been hit pretty hard by the disease, and it was made patent to all that the people concerned should formulate an attack. In some dis tricts the use of pasteurisation was not popular, for people freely ex pressed doubts as to its efficacy. So the department set to work to pro vide proof. A plant was installed at the Glen Orona Factory, and an offi cer of the department supervised the feeding of the calves and pigs in the ! district. The first batch of pigs was marketed some time ago, and all passed the inspector. A second lot has sine" been killed, and all were free from the disease. The demon stration, though it only supports other similar ones, is important to all dairymen, because it proves the effi cacy of Pasteur's methods. It would, be useless either New Zealand or Aus tralia attempt...

The Engineer estimated that £2000 would be required within the next twelve months to put the roads in order." This must mean a temporary "loan,, and even then tem porary loans are not.for that pur pose. There must be some mistake.
