The Dairy. THE TREATMENT OF WOUNDS IN COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 December 1901

The Dafry* THE TREATMENT OF WOUNDS IN COWS. Far more harm than good is done by too much " doctoring" in dealing with wounds in farm animals. This applies in particular to such serious injuries as broken knees or deep incised wounds. In dealing with such cases, the owners of the animals seem to enter tain the idea that they cannot overdo the clean ing and dressing of the wounds, and the use of applications calculated to baring about a rapid recovery. No greater mistake could be committed. It is a good principle in dealing with cases in which the animals are suffering from ordinary injuries or wounds to use as few external application as possible until an oppor tunity has first been given to nature to repair the injury by bringing about a natural adhesion of the parts. Steps must Be taken, of course, to remove any foreign matter or dirt that may be present, and provision must be made for excluding dust and air, but beyond this it is seldom advisable to go. When a wound or injury of th...

PREPARING COWS FOR THE BUTCHER. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 December 1901

PREPARING COWS FOR THE BUTCHER. The natural end for a cow which does not milk up to the standard which her owner con siders payable, is to be killed for beef, unless, of course, she has some specially good blood in her veins, and her owner wants to rear calves from her. It is impossible to prepare her for the butcher if she is allowed to get in calf; The Famous Southern Ayrshire 44 Duchess." and, as the way our dairy farms are worked, it is not convenient to keep a few cows sepa rate from the bull, the only way to eliminate these cows from our herds is by spaying them. The risk from spaying is considered by experts to be very slight, and has been proved by them to entail a loss of not more than 2 per cent. Spayed cows fatten readily, and their beef is equal in quality to that of steers. The best time to spay a cow is about six weks after she has calved, and if she has managed to get in calf again before she is spayed it is almost a cer tainty, though not absolutely so, that the oper...

TO TEST IF A COW IS IN CALF. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 December 1901

TO TEST IF A COW IS IN CALF. The following is a very simple method of determining whether your cow is in calf or not:-" The cow to be tested is, of course, milked separately, and as soon as possible after the milk is drawn we dip a straw or Timothy stem in jthe bucket of milk. Have a glass of pure water at hand, and allow one drop of the milk to fall in the water-only one; if the milk quickly dissipates and renders the .water murky she is not in calf, but if the milk drop sinks to the bottom of t^ie glass before mixing with the water is preg nant. If you are not sufficiently ex pert," take, the milk of another cow that has newly calved, and pursue the same treatment with both at the same time, and you will not fail to note the difference in the way the drop of milk will mix with the water. I have practised1 this method of determining pregnancy in my herd for years, and I never knew it to fall. Of course, I only speak from my own experience, but the theory is that the milk of a pregn...

ARTESIAN WATER BORES, WESTERN QUEENSLAND. THE GEORGETOWN-NORTH QUEENSLAND GOLD ESCORT. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 December 1901

ARTESIAN WATER BORES, WESTERN QUEENSLAND. THE GEORGETOWN-NORTH QUEENSLAND GOLD ESCORT. THE BARRON RIVER GORGE, FROM THE RAILWAY LINE. VEST of Cairns is the Walsh and Tinaroo mining district, long known as an area rich in tin, copper and silver. Mining has been carried on for many years, but chiefly for tin. The copper and silver deposits, however, although rich, have not, until late years, had the attention paid to them that they undoubtedly deserved. This was due chiefly to the absence of rail way facilities for goods and machinery required at the mines. Now that the Cairns railway line has been extended to Chillagoe and a commencement made towards Mt. Garnet and Atherton, the district is rapidly progressing, and will, no doubt, soon become one of the leading mining centres of Northern Queensland. Herberton, the centre of the tin mining industry, lies about 37 On the Upper Walsh River miles S.W. from Mareeba, and was opened in 1879, and to date upwards of ^2,000,000 worth of tin, c...

Cucumbers. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 December 1901

Cucumbers. Cucumbers require such copious moisture, that unless thedrainage is exc^fenfc*theAground will become sodden rand tne plants-/{or fruit damp off. By placing a layer of rough matenal at the bottom of the bed, not only is stagnation avoided, and fresh water allowed to percolate freely among the roots, but the heat will more readily ascend into the bed itself. A good compost consists of one part sound loam, one fourth part well-decayed manure, arid two parts leaf-mould. The whole should be well mixed, and.brought into the house a few days before planting takes place, so as to prevent the roots of the young plants from being chilled. They system of mound:planting is the most satisfactory and it certainly conduces to a longer fruiting habit. After turning the plant out of the pot, stand it on the bed, and carefully cover round the ball of roots with about 3 in. of compost. This will encourage fresh roots to form at the base. Set the plants about 3 ft. apart and give a light wat...

YOUNG PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 December 1901

YOUNG PIGS. Complaints of young pigs doing badly while with the sow are very common. Occasionally the complainant recognises that the sow is a poor milker, or " a bad mother," as the general run of pig-breeders express it; but in the majority of cases it is not even dreamed of that the pigs are doing badly because they do not get sufficient milk of proper quality to satisfy their growing requirements. A large number of pigs die young from no other cause than that they are starved-unable to get sufficient sustenance from their mother. Young pigs are difficult to rear by hand; they do not take kindly to cows' milk, or rather it does not suit them because it is deficient in fixed constitu ents, particularly in fat, and they do not pay for the new milk received. There is no greater nuisance on a farm than a litter of motherless pigs, or a lot that are practically orphaned be cause, their mother has not enough milk for them. It is said that pedigree pigstock, like the pedigree cows above...

MINING The Minerals and Precious Stones of Queensland—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — Queensland Country Life — 1 December 1901

The Minerals and Precious Stones of Queensland-Continued. BY WM. LEES. HAMILTON GOLDFIELD or Ebagoolah lies 28 miles south of Coen, on the western fall of the Mcllwraith Range, 35 miles from Port Stewart, and 140 miles N.W. from Laura Station, on the Cooktown Railway line; the route generally used is by boat to Port Stewart, and thence by coach. The field was opened early in 1900, the alluvial being in places very rich, the stone yielding as high as 5 ozs. to the ton in the battery; in 1900, 223 tons of stone gave a return of 805 ounces of gold, being worth ^3 per ounce. The formation of the country is chiefly granite and schisls, nearly all the alluvial gold being obtained on the northern and eastern fall of the gullies. The reefs run chiefly north and; south, almost vertical, and in size from 12 to 48 inches; water is met with at a depth of from 50 to 100 feet; there is a five-head battery, to which concentrating appliances are yet to be added ; crushing costs 30/- and carting 8/-...
