CATS. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 14 January 1919
States Friday's Melbourne's "Age": A little excitement was .occasioned in tho market for oats yesterday by the eagerness of buyers of grain and thc willingness of_some of them to oay for lots fit for shipment prices which were ponce above recent limits in values. Tho actual causo of the "flutter" was difficult to define, but it was attribut ed in some quarters to a sudden de mand from Tasmania and New Zea land. There was also a strong inquiry from country centres in Victoria, where farmers apparently are desirous, to secure oats, for seed before stocks havo been picked over. Sales of all de scriptions yesterday represented about 2000 bags, contracts for shipment pro . _i - viding for spread delivery dows .to as late as Jg»e, .

DRY SPELL AFFECTS DAIRYING. I The effect of thc prolonged dry .weather on the coast is noticeable in tlie dairying industry! The milk sup plies are falling off, and a ¿ood down pour is "needed to prevent a more mark ed decline. A good rain now would . make a difference of 20 tons of butter. That is the conviction of the manager of tho Burnio factory. That quantity of butter at current prices represents over £3,000. ; Thc production'.at tho Burnic! factory last week was 5 tons 17 cwt., a. decline of about 3cwt. on tho previous week. This time last year tho production was substantially greater, and reached the maximum of 7* tons per week. Despite the fact that the farmers aro getting substantially higher prices for butter fat, their cheques do not equal the receipts of last season. And unless good rains fall soon the season will prove a short one. The experienco at Burnie is probably similar to oilier parts of the N.TT. Côast. . . Advice has been received from thc South that Bream Cre...
