EARLY SOWING. THE BEST RESULTS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 11 June 1915

EARLY SOWING. THE BEST RESULTS. There is a decided difference of opin ion among Australian wheatgrowers as bo the best time to sow, Borne farm ers believe in sowing a moist bed, and waiting for rain. These aro the ex ceptions (writes a contemporary), as the generality proceed with drilling when the .proper season arrives. Seed lie in tho ground for months without suffering any ill effects if there is 110 moisture in the.soil. it is when light showers occur to start germination, suc ceeded by dry conditions,that harmful results follow. Loss of seed often :. rises from sowing on inadequately 'worked fallow. In such cases the soil contains sufficient moisture to cause tho yraiii to malt, and probably to sprout, but not to germinate properly. H is now generally agreed that on the av erage, early sowing produces the best results. The principal advantage claimed is that while the summer heat is still retained in the ground, a niore .satisfactory germination can be secured with a lesser ra...

CATCH CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 11 June 1915

CATCH CROPS. MANURING. Too little attention has been given in ! tile past to the manuring of catch cropsi They bare been regarded as ad ditional crops, which .should not cost anything boyond the labor of putting them iu and taking them off, and the Fanner hns been apt to forget the con ditions under which they grow. If this practice is to be at all suc cessful, crops which grow quickly and yield a large bulk must be obtained,, because a tbiu crop can give iiu return, or if only growing slowly will delay the next crop, while the expense of culti vation and harvesting are almost thy same lor a light as a heavy crop. Wow we know that of the necessary plant foods-nitrogen, phosphoric acid and potash-the most important tor promoting growth is nitrogen, and fur ther, that nitrogen is the most likely to be wanting in the soil. We also know tliat the plant can only take id this nitr-gon in the soluble form as nitrate. There are in the soil a largo number of organisms or bacteria which conve...

Yet the nutritive value of lucerne hay is higher than that of wheaten chatf. According to analysis made by the chemist of the New South Wales Department, lucerne hay has an album inoid ratio of 1 to 3.8; while that ol wheaten chaff is 1 to 4.7-;n other words u givep, weight of lucerne chaff contains roughly one-third more nutri tive material than the same weight ol wheaten chaff. Lucerne too, is valu able from the point of general health. Indeed, upon horses that are not used to it, it is even too relaxing, and con sequently must be fed with a little care at iirat.

A HOME-MADE DEVICE FOR FEEDING CALVES. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 11 June 1915

HOiViE-MADE DEVICE FEEDING CALVES. A dairy farmer writing to ''Hoard's Dairyman," thus describee a simple huino-mado device i'or feeding young calves: Physicians urge us to cliew our food if we are to avoid stomach troubles and indigestion. Failure to masti cate or to mix the food with saliva in the mouth means that part of it will not be digested. Wiiat is true with humans is true wiui calves, whose diet is milk. You say they cannot chew their milk? Yes, but they can aiul they do when tiley get it as nature in tended tlioy should. When they sucklo it from their mother they get it more slowly- and the milk is mixed with sec retions of the mouth beforo being swal lowed. I have found it pays me to have con ditions as similar to nature as possible. Ualves fed on the liouie-made feeders I have are strangers to scouring, which is simply indigestion. At the drug store 1 get some big sheep nipples. Then 1 saw out circular pieces of half-inch boards, with diameters slightly smaller than tii...

Unfortunately under the present ays | tem, cream is being accepted at butter I factorlo.i and paid for at the same price I irrespective of its olaes or quality, with I the exception of the very worst lots, which are rejected.

EARTHQUAKE RECORD. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 11 June 1915

, EARTHQUAKE RECORD. . In recording an earthquake York shire has broken its record of 20 years. Ln any scheme of earthquake insurance says the London Daiiy Chronicle, that country, along with -Northumberland and Durham, would escape with the lightest premiums, while the Orkneys, the Shetlands, and the Hebrides are just as unshakable. The county in Engli-.nd most to be dreaded is Here tord, where in the cathedTal city alone in 1896 over 200 chimneys were frac tured. This is the biggest British earthquake, extending itself to Ireland, over an area of 98,000 square miles. In Scotland, Oomrie, in Perthshire, would probably have to pay the high est premium, although of late years, the quakes in tlie Loch Earn district have gone to sleep.
