HINTS ABOUT MILKING. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 25 March 1914
HINTS ABOUT MILKING, Have the stable clean, and have the cow clean, or you can't get clean milk. Lime and whitewash for walls and posts is a good thing. Land plastei is a good absorbent in the stable. After a little manipulation of the teats and udder, the milk is ready to "come down." Then is the time to take it and do not delay. Milk as rapidly as possible withoul ,rritating or worrying the cow. No definite rule can be given as to how tllh teats shotuld be handled in milking,, as cows differ and hands dif. fer so much; but be sure of one thing, please a cow if possible. There should always be a friendly feeling between the cow and the milk. or, and milkers should not be changed if it can be avoided, A cow will not "give down" her mills to a milker she hates or is afraid of, and what she does give will be deft. eient in butter fat. Always milk a cow in the same manner, at about the same time and speed. Any change will irritate and tend to excite her, Always milk in the same order, ...

DIET FOR A FEVERISH HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 25 March 1914
DIET FOR A FEVERISH HORSE, It so frequently happens that horses suffer from slight colds, which pro, luce a certain amount of feverish, aess, at this time of the year, that a !ew lines concerning the laxative food Ahich is beneficial in such cases-may be worth consideration by the horse. iwner. Of course, when the bowels have to be kept mildly open, fresh grass or lucerne are both excellent :ods for the purpose, but these are not always obtainable, and, even when they are, sometimes preferable substi. tutes can be obtained. At all events, grass should 'never be given to sick horses unless it is dry, and this neces. iltates a certain amount of trouble w.vhich it may be desired, to avoid. Some people are very fond of giving green grain, such as oats or barley, ;o their horses, but such things are rnly occasionally in season, and, con. sequently, though an animal in a fev. 3rish condition is often tempted by them, they can scarcely be regarded as procurable when required.
