RAPE FOR PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 15 January 1915

RAPE FOR PIGS. The Wisconsin Station lias fed rape to pigs ivith uniformly satisfactory re sults. It was sometimes found neces sary to limit the amount of other foods until the. pigs became accustomed to the rape. As an average of two trials recently reported, it was found that 1 aero of rape was equivalent to 2.767 lbs. of mixed grain (2 parts maize ami 1 part shorts). It is believed that rape will prove as valuable for pigs as for sheep. ]t may be fed to pigs with less risk, since they do not, bloat, on it or scour if fed properly. Tt will doubtless prove valuable as pasturage for brood sows and young pigs, and seems espe cially valuable for swine feeding div ing the hot summer months, because of its succulence and the relish with which it is eaten. r\

AUTUMN CROPS FOR COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 15 January 1915

AUTUMN CROPS FOR COWS. An Omata (Taranaki) farmer reports good results from a trial of tares and rye corn as green feed for dairy cows iu the autumn. "The eows," lie states, "were turned on early in March and the stimulus was such that the March returns were as good as those of Feb ruary. The herd is one of 25 cows. During the period of feeding the milk increased by 104 lb., over the last fort night in February. In the second fort night in March, after the tares- and rye corn wore done, they decreased 1002 lb., notwithstanding that they were giv en a liberal supply of turnips, proving that green succulent feed is required | to keep the supply up. "The average earnings of the herd for six months-October to March, in clusive-was £1/1/10, an average of £1 12/ per cow per month. The March cheque was £340/7/, £2/12/8 a-head of February. The average earnings were really rather better than stated, as three or four of the cows did not calve until about the middle of Octo | ber, and the late...

THE BEST "WAY OUT. An oW negro parson in a Southern cliurch was denouncing theft to his congregation, when he said: "If there is any member of- this congregation who is guilty of theft, he had better repent at once and be saved." On his way home he was stopped by old Rastus,' who had listened to the sermon intently. "Dolin' you think parson, that nex' Sunday will do jes as well as to-night to repent?" asked Rastus. "But, Rastus, why not repent to night and he .saved, man?" "Well, pahson, it's dis way," explain ed Rastus.

DROUGHT-RESISTING FORAGE CROPS. SUITABLE FOR STACK ENSILAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 15 January 1915

DROUGHT-RESISTING FORAGE CROPS. SUITABLE FOE STACK ENSILAGE. As the dry weather is fairly univer sal, and many spring-sown fodder crops are either a total or partial failure, a brief description, of some of our leading drought-resisting fodder crops suitable for making into ensilage later on in the autumn will not be out of place. First of all comes maize, and there are now so many good varieties for fod der purposes that it is sometimes diffi cult to choose. Longfellow and Bed Hogan have.proved good fodder maizes. Hickory King is a large white maize, and throws several stalks from each seed. It stools well in fact, and there fore is economical in the seedling. There is an Australian variety-the Craig Mitchell, which yields enormous crops of fodder. It has yielded up to over 50 tons of fodder to the acre, and stools well. The seed is, however, ex pensive as yet-about 10/- per bushel. But, speaking generally, any variety that has proved itself in a district should be chosen for prefe...

SOME LUCERNE POINTS. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 15 January 1915

SOME LUCERNE POINTS. A sovereign spent m buying lime and phosphates, with drainage, will do more towards keeping weeds and grass out of lucerne than two pounds worth oi labor spent m discing. Where weeds get ahead oi the lucerne, the soil is wrong; remedy that and the lucerne will smother all else. There are as yet 110 serious diseases to which lucerne is subject. On soils well stored with lime lucerne seems to vigorous and healthy that it resists disease most markedly. ..'i'he s;mple truth is that after the first year lucerne is in its prime. . it 'may yield as much the third year or may not. It will oiten begin to de cline somewhat on tho fourth year and inay be notably less productive on the fifth year. isy the sixth year, the owner begins to wonder whether, after all, lucerne is as valuablo a crop as he had supposed, and his neighbors begin to say "i told you so!" .Now liad this- man turned under his lucerne after it had given him three or four years of cuttings he would have ha...

CORRECT WAY TO CONSIDER A PEDIGREE. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 15 January 1915

CORRECT WAY TO CONSIDER A j PEDIGREE. | Those who think a pedigree is of little value will never get very far in animal breeding of any kind, yet the sight of a pedigree is of little value to a buyer of breeding animals unless lie knows something of the individuals found among the ancestry named. There is no use in examining pedigrees unless the names found in them suggest some thing intelligible to the reader. . The beginner can soon learn the names of some of the most famous animals of the breed and look for them in the pedi grees of the animals he buys, but there is much to bo known about the pedi grees in addition to the knowledge that they contain the names of great ani mals. Even old experienced breeders have their own notions and hobbies as to the value of good names in given places in a pedigree. .1 believe that one of the greatest mis takes into "which young breeders are prone to fail is thinking that a great sire or a great dam necessarily means a great individual.

A L.M UHTA-GLKX l'OIUJES I!OA U. Cr Steenholdt reported re interview with people concerned in this road. Mr Eden did not attend, but Cr Hade subsequently saw him. Mr Eden will adhere to his original proposal, if the road is taken diagonally across his paddock, but if taken along the railway line he wants £10 per acre and a number of impossible condi tions. The land along the line was good. The only objection to Mr Eden's proposal was that theie was 2 miles of fencing, otherwise the road was just as near, and over poorer and gravelly country, which would m il« just as good a road. Cr* Bowman : It would be much safer for travelling, than alongside the railway line ; horses would not be frightened with trains. On the motion of Grs Steenholdt and Hade it was decided to ask Messrs Eden, Knox and Charlton for terms for land, giving old road in exchange. The secretary Mr Bonwick, said that they could be compelled by tin Act to accent the old load in exchange. ORDINARY BUSINESS. Cr Daly who...
