Model Soil for Cereal Crops. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 22 April 1910

. ' Model Soil for Cereal Crops. Sonie years ago an extremely import ant experiment was completed by a : French scientist, since dead, who luid been endeavoring to ascertain as con clusively as possible what actually con stituted a. model or perfect soil. Crops were grown with great diligence under various conditions, and the result was the conclusion that the best soil for ag ricultural crops, and they were pro duced during the experiments, was one consisting o£ equal parts of sandy, chalky (lime), clayey and peaty mat ter,- not by. weight, but by volume. It will be observed that the sand supplied the material which made the soil por ous and mechanically adapted for its purpose; the peat provided the organic .matter and the resulting humus, in addition to which it assists immensely in the retention of moisture at a time when moisture is most needed, and in the warming of'the soil as It gradually undergoes decomposition; the clay fur nishes the retentive and substantial matter which...

Best Lambs for Export. [Newspaper Article] — Canowindra Star and Eugowra News — 22 April 1910

Best Lambs for Export. I in an address at the Winter Show, Dunedln, New Zealand, Mr Gilbert An derson, said that what is required for the export trade is prime well-grown iambs under 421b in weight. They must be prime .—that is, well finished. Many farmers keep their lambs until the last of the feed is. gone, with the result that the stock when killed show signs of having gone back. These arc the "rimy backs" that you hear of from Smithfield market. Some make the mistake of keeping their lambs until they are too heavy. The? might have turned off two medium weight lambs which would have paid them better than one heavy lamb. The home trade wants lambs under 421b, and the demand Cor these exceeds the quan tity produced. There is only a limited trade for tegs—that is, lambs over 421b. At one time-farmers made the mistake of breeding too early, with' the re sult that the losses in lambing were very groat. Now the trade has developed, and is on steady lines. Farmers can choose their own t...

The number of sheep in the different countries of Europe, excepting in Russia, and to a less extent in England has been steadily decreasing for a number of years. Ths is especially the case in France, where the statistics show that there were, In round numbers:— 1840 32,000,000' 18C7 30,000,000 ' ffi 1877 .. .. ,, .. 23,-100,000 18S7 22,900,000 1902 15,500,000 ; Among the principal reasons which are said to have contributed to ths regret table position in France are the progress in intense cereal cultivation and ttu: breaking-up of the stubble directly after the harvest is gathered. It is also as serted that many farmers have found themselves reluctantly compelled to lceep fewer sheep in consequence of the in sreaslng diflicuty of getting the service Of capable shepherds. Under the care of a good and careful man nocks will pros per and multiply, but when badly tendeel, either through ignorance or neglect, they suffer, in condition and fecu...

Two services of motor waggons havo been established to meet the needs o£ farmers in carrying produce to the rail Way or the market, and in fetching sup plies . of artificial fertilisers, artificial foods and implements. The success of the first service, set on foot last year in Yorkshire in con nection .with the North-Eastern 7Ia.fi ' way, led- to the starting of the second. Mr Montgomery, of the Agri cultural Organisation Society, says :— "The farmers must be organised and the freights calculated. In Yorkshire, one of our affiliated societies, the Brandsby Dairy' and Trading Association, ap proached the North-Eastern Railway, promising, if they would run the service from Brandsby to Tollerton Station, on the main line, the association would erect a depot, act as agents, and organise the service.

Comparatively .few. possess any very clear 'conception of what a powerful colony is," (writes the; "Journal, of Horticulture."): In the height of the season 'as* many' as two brood chambers and four shallow supers are sometimes required to con-, tain the progeny of one queen, and the'stream ; of -traffic in' and out has the sound and appear-' ance of a swarm, and thev sound of a distant sawmill at-work. Colonies .such as, these pro . tect themselves from both diseases and 'rob bers, and are very profitable. . . -• The object of spring feeding may sometimes ' be to-prcserve the.bees, but generally it is to stimulate the queen to greater activity in ovipositing, to produce the greatest possible number of bees-before the main honey flow commences.
