COUNTRY BUTCHERS. BOARD TO BE CREATED. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 10 March 1914
COUNTRY BUTCHERS. BOARD TO BE CREATED. At the meeting of the State Cab fnet on 'Monday, it was decided to au th?rise the Minister for Labour (Sir Alexander Peacock) to appoint a board to regulate the wages and con ditions of employment of country butchers. Under the Factories Act the Minis ter has the power, where a metropoll tan board has been created, to appoint a country board for the same indus try, should clrcumstances warrant it. Mr. C. H. Andersen (the secretary of the Butchers' Federation) recently re quested that the country butchers, who are now under the Country Shop As sletants' MWages Board, should be de leted from the determination of that body. The reason given was that the board had not the power to fix rates for slaughtermen and others similarly employed. The deletiou of the country butchers from the determination was suggested, with a view to the eventual extension of the metropolitan but chers' determination.
AGRICULTURAL NOTES AND QUERIES. RAISING THE WHEAT YIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Mercury — 10 March 1914
AGRICULTURAL NOTES AND QUERIES, (13Y GLEANER.) RAISING TILE WI--1ET YIELD. Great advances have been made in recent years in respect to wheat oul tivation. The widespread use of phos phatic manures and of bare fallowing, and the introduction of new and more proliic varieties of wheat, have all tended to increase the wheat yield. It was due to these improved methods, rather than to a favourable season, that the record wheat yield of over a5 nullion bushels was obtained in Vic toria last harvest. But the average yield per acre (13.28S bushels) last har vest is still low compared with that of other grain-growing countries. The L llted Kingoum is a climato by no means thle most favourable for wheat culture, but has a yearly average of over 8o bushels per acre. Great Brit ain's high average yield is almost wholly due to good farming, in which drainage crop rotation, thorough cul tivatlonl anld heavy malnuring, all play an important part. It would be idle, of course, to advocate that the m...
