WEANING PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 January 1915

WEANING PIGS. (By H. R. Alexander.) No hard and fast rule can be laid down as to just when to wean any particular litter of pigs. Much depends on the suckers, but it is not an advantage to leave them longer than, s'ay, from 8 to 10 weeks with the mother, as if she is to be kept up to a certain standard and breed, say, two litters every fifteen months, it is not a fair-thing to ask her to suckle pigs for a longer period than that mentioned. We'aning pigs shou'd be done gradually by shutting the young ones away from the mother and only letting them have access to her at gradually lengthening intervals. It is rare that this practice has to be fo1lowsd, for as a rule the sow we'ans the pigs herself by simply drying up in her milk supply within a period of about eight weeks. It is at this time tha:t the greatest advantage is found of of having a few cows on the pig farm, the skim-milk so produced making an ideal form of food for the young weaners. The skim-milk and a good run on the luce...

Something About Olives. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 January 1915

Something About Olives. In a recent issue of the "Irrigation Rev cord" there appeared some impressions by Mir. H. L. Levien, of Mildura, and in the course of his remarks he stated that in his opinion it would pay settlers to go in for the growing of olives if arrangements could be made for a sufficient amount of oil to be produced on the Areas to war rant the establishment of a factory. It will be remembered that Mr. Levien ad vocated co-operation in the matter, and suggested that settlers in a given district might make arrangements among them selves to each plant a certain area. In formation has just come to hand of the actual results which are being obtained in Mildura from olive culture. It should be remembered^, of course, that labor over there is not as expensive as it is here, and in olive picking the cost of labor is a very expensive item. Making deductions on this head however, the fol lowing figures aire interesting reading, particularly as the olives were obtained from 30 ...

The Need of Caution. A WORD ABOUT HAY CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 January 1915

The Need of Caution. A WORD ABOUT HAT CROPS. When a man achieves an outstanding success in any given direction he is very liable to imagine that similar success is bound to follow his next venture on the same lines. This reflection is very ap plicable to the growing of hay crops on the Areas next year, and perhaps at the present time when boom prices are the rule, special attention can with advantage be directed to the subject. Don't Overdo It.-The present position is quite exceptional. Although the me teorological records of the State show that droughts have occurred with almost mon otonous regularity during the past fifty years, they, fortunately for the State as a whole* do not occur every year; in fact, by the law of averages it is reasonable to suppose that a period of several good years will foflow on each droughty one. As a matter of fact it may be (and for the sake of the State it is to be hoped it will be) a great number of years before the next severe visitation of the kin...

Our Late Chief. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 January 1915

Our Late Chief. The Late Mr. L, A. B. Wade, M.Inst. C.E., Commissioner for Irrigation, N.S.W. ""His life was gentle; and the elements So mixed in him, that Nature might stand - up And say to all the world, 'This was a man!'" ; .. "He was a man, take him for all in all, I shall not look upon his like again."' The Commissioner is dead! At 6 p.m. on Monday, the 11th instant, he left the office after a heavy day's work, apparent ly in the best of health and spirits; at 2 p.m. the, next day he had passed away. The suddenness of the end was intensified by the fact that although he passed a bad night, and was not well enough to come to the office next morning, no one d earned, even then, that serious consequences would follow. Shortly after midday, however, he collapsed, and soon his spirit had gone beyond recall. The immediate cause of death was heart failure, but all who know the Commis sioner intimately realise that the real cause is to be found in the enormous strain to which, day afte...

Dairy Sanitation. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 January 1915

Dairy Sanitation. - (By M. A. O'Callaghan.) The following is a transcript of notes taken at a lecture delivered by Mr. O'Cal laghan during the holding of the reclent Dairy Science School at Lee ton Butter Factory. After explaining how neces sary it was that a creiam testier should be fully qualified, Mr. O'Callaghan went on to deal with the effect which the proposed Dairy Bill would have on oream testing. The-Grading of Cream.-If the Dairy Bill" becomes law, graders'"must hold cer tificates to the effect that they can grade cream into classes which will fairly ac curately at least typify the butter that will result. The duty of classifying but ter will, therefore, rest to a great extent on the Manager. If the cneam is classi fied correctly, there will be no difficulty in classifying the butter, but if the Manager is incapable of grading cream correctly, good cream will pass into No. 2 vat with the inferior, and inferior cream will be mixed in No. 1 vat with good cream. Both results ...

Instructional Notes. FRUIT GROWING. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 January 1915

Instructional Notes. FRUIT GROWING. The most important part of the season from a watering point of view is over, and the trees should be now given a chiance to harden off. As a matter of fact, in most cases the trees will not require much water after February. It is beneficial to do without watering if possible at this period of the year, as the tendency is then for the roots to work their way deeper into the ground thian would be the case if there were a supply of moisture near the surface. Watering up till the end of the season is a great mistake, since there is every proba bility of the tender growth thereby in duced being injured should an early frost occur, with injury to the growing tree. All that is necessary from now onward is a sufficiency of moisture in the ground to keep the tree in ia healthy condition and to prevent it prematurely losing its leaves. Citrus trees will require more water than deciduous trees or vines; if good autumn rains do not fall, it may be advis able...

THE BARELLAN-GRIFFITH RAILWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 January 1915

THE BARELLAN-GRIFFITH RAILWAY. It is pleasing to be able to make an im portant announcement in connection with the progress of this much-discussed work. Settlers on the Irrigation Areas have been anxiously waiting for something definite as to the completion of this line for some time past. This anxiety has been shared by the Commissioner, as it has been all a'ong recognised that until the extension of the line from Barellan to Griffith was available to carry produce from the Irri gation Areas, a number pf eligible settlers would be loth to take up blocks on the favored Mirrool end of the project. On 21st December last the Commissioner wrote a letter to the Department of Pub lic Works pointing out that a large num ber of farms had been taken up in the vicinity of Griffith, and that this portion of the Irrigation Scheme was under a very serious drawback on account of the lack of railway communication. The Commis sioner asked for information as to what steps were being taken to expedit...

POINTS ABOUT POTATOES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 January 1915

POINTS ABOUT POTATOES. Many settlers are no doubt considering the possibilities of the autumn potato market since it is the autumn crop to which potato growers un the Areas must look for their main returns. A certain amount of doubt has always characterised the views expressed by visiting experts as to whether potatoes could be satisfac torily produced on the Areas during the springtime, but very little doubt has ever been cast on the possibilities of the autumn planting, and the experiments carried on by the Department of Agri culture last year seem to prove that, given a fairly light friable soil, potato culture properly conducted wou'.d be a payable proposition on the Areas. In deed, this is only what would be expected, as potatoes-are very largely grown on many similar American scftemes. As a matter of fact,. potatoes do well in a wide variety of soi's, bxit a deep medium loam inclined towards a sandy rather than clayey nature is perhaps the best of all for them. Don't Bo Afraid...

The wounds should then be thoroughly washed with some anti septic 'solution, such as 2 per cent.

OPENING OF THE BACON FACTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 February 1915

OPENING OF THE BAOON FACTORY. All intending suppliers to the bacon factory are naturally anxious to hear when it is anticipated that the factory will be opened. Should nothing unforeseen occur and the work progress at the rate it is now doing, it is hoped that bacon curing will be commenced about the end of March. A lot will depend, however, on the number of pigs which are then offer ing, as it is intended to endeavour to run the bacon factory economically right from the start of operations. It is reported that pigs were last month being taken away from the Areas in hun dreds, and some settlers who were spoken to on the matter stated that if they knew when it was intended to open the bacon factory they would be prepared to hold some of their pigs. The information now published should be such as to enable settlers to ascertain exactly how they stand.

SCHOOLBOYS' AGRICULTURAL CLUBS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 February 1915

SCHOOLBOYS' AGRICULTURAL CLUBS. Reference was recently made to the com petition lately held in connection with the growing of onions by Leeton schoolboys. Immediately upon the school resuming it is proposed to try and work up some more enthusiasm amongst the young prospec tive irrigation farmers by inducing them to inaugurate another competition among themselves on the lines of the American Boys' Corn Clubs, which have yielded such surprising results in many of the agricul tural centres of the United States. It was hoped to have made corn the subiect of the experiment this year, but it will unfortunately be too late to do so now. The best crop for the next season's work will be fully discussed with Mr. Dickson on his return. In all probability cereals will be chosen-may be either wheat or oarts, for hay production, or per haps malting barley may obtain the palni, since it is felt to be a crop which has great possibilities on the Irrigation Areas if handled on the right lines. It may...
