STOOKING SHEAVES. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 21 February 1907
STOOKING SHEAVES. It may seem to some quite unnecessary to give instructions in the art of stook Ing (says a writer. in :nn English' ex change), but there are whole districts where farm- workers do not know how to 'set :up.'-; ; In such places the style followed Is fnr :,tu-n m cr, tr. gother, ono picks up a sheaf and. dumps it down on Its end, and waits till a mate dumps' the other alongside It. Three couples of ^sheaves are put down this Way, all standing more or less perpendi cular on their own bottoms. The result that a lot of sheaves tumble down before tho row is finished, whilst the least wind blows tho half of them over, and they do not protect -each other from rain. The proper method Is for each man to work a row of stooks' by himself. He should take a sheaf under each arm, set their butts »n the ground, and draw the heads ui- together. Then the outside couples should be done tho sanie way, and in ad dition slanted Inwards to the middle couple. By following this plan the sto...
HORSES IN SHOW CONDITION. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 21 February 1907
HORSES IN SHOW CONDITION. Horses are exhibited at shows in a fat ccndition because they look best. Tnere is not one horse in 10,000 that laoks well when thin. It is the same with the sale ring as it is with the show ring, and farmers who do not put a good coating of flesh on -their horses before offering them for sale are merely losing money. As -a- general rule, the falter a horse is the bettor he will sell, and though this isinot true to the same extent of exhibi tion, a horse must be in high flesh or he will not hold his own when -the ribbons are being handed aroun.1. Flesh rounds a _horse. up - and makes him attractive ; tor the- eye. A thin, gaunt, bony horse is. not. an object: of beauty. Then when one sees a- thin horse there is always the EU-plrion that; there may be something wr^ng ...with him, some organic defect that may prevent him taking on flesh. ?If a horse is fat and the skin glossy and good to look at, the .probability is that there Is nothing more wrong, - with .hi...
HOME-MADE LIGHT HINGE. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 21 February 1907
HOME-MADE LIGHT HINGE. When it is required to hang a light gate to a poultry-yard or garden, and hinges are not procurable, or cannot be fitted to a gatepost, an excellent sub stitute for hinges may be made with stout galvanised wire. Two pieces are bent to form the staples, which are passed through a hole In the post and secured at the back, as shown 'n the diagram (from the Queensland 'Agri- cultural Journal'). The hinges are formed by twisting two other pieces of wire in the form of a spiral, which is then hammered down to close it as much as possible. These two spirals ar ethen fixed to the gate itself, which is then hung on to the staples. For a light gate such hinge are very effec tive

Work was proceeding as usual In the premises, and outside a number of farm servants had assembled with carts for tho purpose of taking away loads of draff.

THE DAIRY. WATER FOR BUTTER FACTORY USE. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 21 February 1907
THE DAIKY. t WATER FOR BUTTER FACTORY USE. , Bulletin No. 138, Issued by the Agri cultural College in Kansas, U.S.A., d?als with the effect of bacteria In the water used at butter factories for washing butter. From tho bulletin we take the j following extracts: — | snrmmnR ot? cionta mttst atton. 1 'One of -the greaiest. sources of cm- j tamlnation In factory butter is that of Impure wash water. Cream may be well pasteurised, ar.d the best starter may be added so as to produce a perfect flavor, yet the entire product may be spoiled by wash ng It with the average creamery water. 'For the past few years butter has been greatly Improved by pasteurisation and the use of starters made from com 'mercial cultures. By this method some buttermakers have made an average score of from 93 to 97 for weeks, and in somo cases months, in succession. Occa sionally. however, the butter is off flavor, and in almost every case where butter has scored well when first churned, after remaining in cold sto...

Snug Little Dairy Farm. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 21 February 1907
Snus Little Dairy Farm. Perhaps one of the most compact, and snuggest little dairy farms in this district is that of Mr. E. Erichs, of Upper Main Arm. Its area is not very extensive, as it contains only 50 acres, but every acre is good. 1 It is pretty evenly divided, there being 20 anrfis of flat, and 30 acres of first class rising ground, all of which has been cleared and sewn down with paspalum, and .at the present time it is waving like a hayfield, and is cap able of carrying much* more stock than is depasturing upon it, which is one to the acre. The farm is splen didly improved, anil has erected upon it a pretty and comfortable home stead. The farm is divided into four cultivation paddocks, in one of which is a magnificent crop of maize, about 10 feet high, which is producing well, and will shortly be ready for harvesting. In another is a late maize crop, while the others are being sewn down with planter for winter feed. In addition to the cultivation paddocks there is a bull pa...

CARE OF HORSES' SHOULDERS. At a recent meeting of the ICoolunga branch- of . the South Australian Bureau of Agriculture a paper .was read ' on 'How I Keep My Horses' Shoulders Sound.' 'In Introducing, this subject,' Mr Buchanan said, '.'I intend describing the method which has proved satisfactory to mo for the last 15 or 10 years.

FARM AND FIELD. WHAT FARMYARD MANURE DOES FOR THE SOIL. [Newspaper Article] — Mullumbimby Star — 21 February 1907
FARM AND FIELD. WHA'I FARMYARD MANURE DOES FOR THE_S0IL. The following concise article on farm yard manure appeared in 'Wallace's Farmer,' U.S.A.: — We have been so Insistent on the duty of every farmer, every day In the week, except Sabbath, to haul out manure as fast as. it Is made, that we owe it to our readers to tell them just why we insist so strenuously on this point. It is not solely because it contains all tho essen tials of fertility, in proportions, varying accoraing -o tne toou wnicn tne .live stock has received. It does contain all these elements, and its return to the soil Is therefore necessary if we maintain this fertility, but this is not, after all, the main benefit of the manure to the soil. | It is cheaper to grow clover and plough It under than It Is to haul out manure, if the haul is of any great distance. The clover will furnish nitrogen. It Is cheaper, if the hmil is Jong, to buy pot ash and phosphorus than it is to supply It in the form of manure. Manure fur...

In the first' instnnco. Nature has applied the means to conserve tho fodder and in the second to test the provision made by man' for beast. In good ssasons many refrain from conserving fodder in this form, and growl if tlioy are asked to do it, and in tho bad season they growl because they have'nt done it.
