The proposal of the Commissioner is a good one,-as something should be done at once to set the pro position moving in the. right direction. Next to dairying, I consider pig-breeding under proper conditions, should be the most profitable industry as regards animal husbandry.

Irrigation Practice. III [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 July 1913

Irrigation Practice. III. IN: previous articles the remarks regarding irrigation practice were chiefly confined to what is termed flooding.. This system of irrigating is, of course, the only prac ticable one for such crops as lucerne and grain, crops which, it may be said, cover the whole of the ground. Orchards, vine yards, vegetables, or any crops planted in rows'are irrigated by means of furrows, the application of water in this manner may not be found so difficult as that of flooding, but there are many features in irrigating by furrows which require care and close attention on the part of the irrigator to secure the best results-or, in fact, to obviate doing positive harm to fruit trees or other crops coming within . the operation. : / * ? * * Many experiments indicate that the most desirable way to irrigate is by means of furrows, and not to permit tEe surface soil to be wetted at all. Orchardists in California have largely experimented regarding different methods of irrigatin...

Irrigation IRecorb. Published Fortnig-litly under the authority of the Commissioner for Irrigation at Leeton, New South Wales, Australia. Address all communications to THE EDITOR, " Irriga tion Record," Leeton, N.S.W. CROPS of any kind make but little head-, way during' the next two months. Set tlers who 'have been late in getting a start on their holdings will probably sow oats as a staple crop during July or perhaps up to the first week in August4. Those who contemplate dairying, or pig-raising should be considering the question of raising fodder crops the coming spring. It is no use talking of dairying unless provision be made to properly feed the . cows. Settlers must lay their plans accord ingly. Last year there was a great amount . of good fodder practically wasted, because some settlers did not have their plans definitely laid to use the material and - turn it into money through milk, pork, mutton, etc. > There sliould be a sound economic reason for every crop produced.

Rhubarb. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 July 1913

Rhubarb. By C. Braithwaite. THE above useful culinary plant should have a place for home use on every farm on the settlement. . Two varieties--Top ;s Crimson .Winter, and Hogan 's Shillelagh (Giant)-have proved themselves to be especially adapted to conditions here, the former being a splendid variety that can be grown practically the whole year round in this district. The latter, as its name implies, is of large growth, but a. spring and summer variety only. * * Most soils on the Yanco Area will grow rhubarb well, but with the addition of stable manure, all but the heaviest soils will grow it to perfection. The plants may be raised from seed sown in the spring, but the better and quicker way is to buy roots of..the best varieties from the nurseries. Where 'possible, before planting, the bed should be well covered with well-rotted cow-yard or stable manure, then dug in as deeply as possible. The crowns should be planted from one to two.inches below the surface, at a distance of from...

THE DIVINING ROD. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 July 1913

THE DIVINING ROD. The need for water on Cowra Experi ment Farm led the Dep artment of Agriculture in September, 1912, to arrange with a gentleman, who appeared . to have' met with success in western districts in locating water by means of the divining rod, to indicate the place at which boring might be conducted on the farm, and the depth at which water would probably be found. The report' to the Department stated: After walking over the Farm witli the divining rod, I could only locate two sub-artesian underflows of im-r portance and only oiie of real importance, The depths range from 132 feet on the hill, and come within 46 feet of the surface in the bush paddock. The manager has pegged out the sites and taken a record of the depths, I am much impressed with this underflow. As far as agreed to I guarantee that water will be found at 46 feet at the spot pegged. I am of opinion from indica tions that at least, 3,000 gallons will be obtained each twenty-four hours. During October bori...

Dairy Cattle to Self Feed. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 July 1913

Dairy Cattle to Self Feed. THE inexperienced dairy farmer is often heard to exclaim that the prospects of dairying becoming payable on the irrig able lands are not good, because hand feeding the cattle would be too expensive in view of the scarcity of reliable labour, and the high rate of wages demanded by the rural workers. It is quite practicable to arrange, say, a 50-acre dairy farm so as to have rotation of crops, and to permit the cows to feed themselves. There is no theory about such a system. It lias been practised in the main dairying countries with the greatest success. At Mildura, for example, where the climatic conditions are similar to those on these irrigation areas a successful irrigator (Mr. H. Jacob) works on a plan for growing fod der for dairy cattle so they can graze the crops, and thus obviate the labour of hand feeding. < # * * . We will suppose a man has 50 acres available as a dairy farm. He may re quire a few acres more for a [homestead, etc., but ...

Among the Settlers. VII. MIRROOL. ALTHOUGH the Mirrool irrigation area lias only been available to settlers a few months, good progress has been made in its development by enterprising* farmers. Out of about ,90 farms thrown open for selection in December la§t over 60 have been taken up. At the time of our visit at-the end of last month, the hieiavy rains had made the roads muddy and difficult to travelover. The character of the soil, is, of course, responsible in a great degree for. this. The roads have been formed through a large portion of the area, but there has notfyet been time to put the thoroughfares in proper order. * * * J" * "" The road from Wilbriggie to the set Ploughing' Mr. L.

NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 July 1913

AT a well-attencled meeting of influential settlers, at Leeton, on June 29 th, it was decided to form a local league of the newly formed Country Party of Australia. Dr. S. S. Smith was elected President; Messrs. A. G. White and E. G. McMurtrie, Vice presidents; and Mr. E. J. Osborne/Hon. Secretary and Treasurer. Those who attended were enthusiastic -regarding the prospects of the new party. Several resolutions were passed to be dealt with by Congress, which met in Sydney, on the 5th inst.

Irrigation Practice. \ IV. IT is interesting to note the experience and ideas of other countrins whose raeople are awakening to the expediency of irrigation. The report i of the South African Irrigation Association, presented at the second annual congress a few months ago, is an evidence of the en thusiasm pervading South Africa regard ing the production of crops at all sieasons through the influence of : irrigation. A dozen or more essays were read at the con gress. These essays, while containing nothing new" in respect to the science of artificially applying water to the soil, are Vine Trellis. The drawing- illustrates a method of erecting- trellis for. vines,-..: and. it will be noted that " chocks " are used for the end post in preference to /'stays." All the timbers are shown as if-sawn, but any convenient timber may be used. It is advised to slightly cant the end posts before straining the wires in order to get full contact with the chocks Each season after pruning, the wires ...

Irrigation IRecorb. Published Fortnightly under the authority of the Commissioner for Irrigation at Leeton, New South "Wales, Australia. Address all communications to THE EDITOR, " Irriga tion Record," Leeton, N.S.W. THE individual possession of large areas of land suitable for close settlement and not fully developed has been a conten tious matter in Australia for many years. The profitable production of wool in the early days of settlement was an incentive to acquire as large a tract of country as possible. The various Governments were then as anxious to get people with capital to take up land as are those to-day. Men were encouraged with free grants of land, and they in turn secured as much more territory as possible in the best localities. Had the individual used the huge areas so acquired to their full value it might not have been such a bad bargain for the State, which was some day destined. to become a nation. Wool being a payable commodity, did not call for the same amount o...
