LAMBS PER MOTOR. NEW ZEALAND EXPERIMENT. Recently the 'Stock Journal' men tioned that fat lambs in N.Z. were be ing motored to the meat works. Now comes this from N. Z. 'Sheep and Wool': The new method of transit of fat lambs by means of motor lorries to freezing works has induced the New Zealand Meat Producers' Board to ex periment in the direction of ascertain inof wlint t.hp. loss in nnnHit.irm n-mmiTrfa to compared with the driven lambs. 'Opinions differ as to the extent that lambs, particularly early lambs, suffer in condition and general appear ance if driven any great distance as compared with lambs which have been railed or motored. The tests which are being carried out by the board have been confined to lambs 'off their mothers' (unweaned), but are not yet complete as the season is too far ad vanced. Th^y will bo resumed again at the commencement of next season with the first drafts of early milk lambs.' I'*

Live Stock - MATTER OF FEEDING. POINTS FOR INVESTIGATION. The Animal Nutrition Institute or ^ Cambridge University is endeavoring to discover the exact stage when cattle- , \ fattening, should stop, owing to the. fanners' losses due to over-fattening . , , .J| meat which the public rejects. - £ There are three points which the ex perienced lattener always considers : — I The first thing to understand is just . ? where the profit comes from in feed-. ing, because it; may- cost moro m test! to get 100 lb.;,l'gain in weight than the extra weight of beef is worth. But the whole of th& dressed meat is worth, v say, Id per pound'raore as food, because ' ; of the improved i condition of tha beast. - The second thing to understand is that the store cattle 'must bo young, \ , because the older a jbeiist is the more , it costs to add each -100 lb. gain.

What Readers Think. THE PREMIER'S GRIEVANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 7 March 1924

Iffiat /Siaiiri;Tililc. THE PREMIER'S GRIEVANCE. Mrs. M. Gunn, Vaucluse, writes: In all the meditation for the State's amelioration, There's not a grain of commonsense except my own. Apparently so said . Sir George Fuller when he detailed in the 'Herald' of the other day all the bills that he, as Premier, has managed to get through in thfe past two sessions. ? The only reason why he did not get through more bills of superlative bene fit to N.S.W. , is that other people in the House did not share in his cpm nionsense ; and, therefore, as he says, lie had to work 'in the face of con structive opposition and unusual 09m bination of circumstances which milita ted against the maximum of progress being made.' Was ever a poor Premier so beset and harassed;'

Points Which Distinguish the Average and the !- _ Polished Driver T HOSE who drove motors in the early days were classed as clever men with nerves of steel, hawk-like optics, and of unerring judgment. Fortunately, or perhaps, unfor tunately, this mantle of awe becomes bo threadbare as to be transparent, and is finally torn away by an en lightened public mind. Nowadays motoring is so general that anyone nshn in not. Mind in hnth nvfla is con sidered to be capable of handling the most powerful car on the road with perfect safety, and people of all types and classes take up driving as though it were more child's play, requiring no extraordinary abilities. For that matter, anyone can drive a, car — bo long as that term only means getting a car, undamaged, from one place to another — but everyone who can do so is not a true motorist. The majority of drivers on the road to-day are self-taught. Qu...

Rabbit Invasion RICHMOND AND TWEED. LANDHOLDERS ALARMED. [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 7 March 1924

Rabbit Invasion ? *— — RICHMOND AND TWEED. LANDHOLDERS ALARMED. A well-attended conference of lead ing farmers and members of the Prim ary Producers' Union was held on Sat urday at Byron Bay, to devise or sug gest some method of arresting the threatened approach of rabbits into the Richmond and Tweed districts. Mr. Banner presided. _ j It was suggested that a rabbit-prodf fence should be erected from the head of the Lismore tidal waters to the head or me lweea ruver, near uie yueeus land border. This would embrace Lis more, Ballina, Byron Bay, Mullumbim by, Murwillumbah, and other centres within the area. An engineer said that a rate of a farthing in the pound on all land rate able in the area would give a revenue of £6935. Mr. W. Flick, who inspected the proposed route, said that the fence would cost from £150 to £160 per mile to erect. Some of the speakers con tended that rabbits were already inside the proposed line.

CHAMPION BUCKJUMPER. [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 7 March 1924

CHAMPION BUCKJUMPER. Bilnmbil claims to possess the cham pion buckjumper in the State. He is a half-draught, so big and awkward looking that one would imagine he was quite incapable of even attempting to buck. Those who essay the task of riding him are soon disillusioned (says a message from Murwillumbah to the 'Herald.') Although the animal is- quiet in har ness, and can be driven by a lady, he objects most strenuously to being rid den. At a sports meeting held at Bilainbil some of the best rough riders in the district attempted to conquer the outlaw, but were unsuccessful. Basil Conaglian, who has been a buck jump rider from his boyhood, and who recently jumped on to a bareback gul loping horse and so saved the life of a young man, named N. Bellman, tried three times to ride tho animal, but failed on each occasion, being thrown high in the air the last time. Ho was slightly, injured. Other men suff ered the same fate.

A.W.U. CLAIMS ON COTTON. [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 7 March 1924

A.W.U. CLAIMS ON COTTON. Queensland cotton-growers got a shock a little time ago, when the A.W.U. served farmers with claims for .employee^ePgagedvin-^leMinwriandrfoF:. cotton, or harvesting cotton, through out Queensland. Th© rates claimed are ;£3 103 a week of 44 hours for youths under 18 years of age; £5 IDs for adults, including keen of (anoroxima tely). £1 per week. There is also to be preference to unionists. Growers claim that the cost of picking would be, under these rates, 4^d per lb., which they cannot pay and make a profit. A very good suggestion comes from the Local Producers' Association on this matter. It is to the effect that the Government should give a production guarantee per acre, so that the farmer could be assured of a fair return. Their argument is that the Govern ment, under the 'darg' system, pro vides for the coal-miners to earn a fix ed amount of, at least, £1 0s 9d per shift per man, irrespective of what coal is got, so why not apply this to the farmer?

The Dept. of Agriculture has circu larised all dairy farmers their opinion on the marking of new-laid eggs. It is suggested that this reform would seri ously hamoer dishonest traders. But Sussex-st. is adverse to marking eggs in any way. No improvement in tbe potato market was noticeable on Thursday, nor do conditions at present pcint that way.
