DAIRYING. CULLING OUT POOR COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 2 May 1914
DAIRYING. V CULLING OUT POOR COWS. An English dairying authority says: Tho elimination ot the worthless ani mals should be one or the chief ob jects ot the cow keeper. ' Milk'records kept carefully and sys tematically furnish rollablc informa tion which ennblos a cow keeper to do tect tlieso worthless animals;, and It pays him to dispose of them at once. Thero are some fnrmers, of course, who may be tempted to rely' wholly on tliolr own judgment nB Tar as the milking capacities of any cow Is con cerned; but guess-work of this kind can teach nothing what It- costB to feed cows, nor whether such food Is being economically fed In relation to tho average quantity ot milk produced: Milk producers need to study this question of cost of food In relation to milk yield very carefully Indeed. The .fact Is clear that a cow giving, say, 800 gallons per annum costs practic ally no moro to feed than one which only gives 000 gallon's; yot, compara tively speaking, there is a loss of .EG on the lat...

SCOURING CALVES. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 2 May 1914
SCOURING CALVES. From experiments carried out in Germany it is claimed to have been discovered that sour milk' given to calves from tlie first to the'-fifth day or tlieir lives, forms an excellent'pre ventive or scour. The constant losses —sometimes of valuable pedigree calves—arc well known in most herds, and arc attributed to the curdling of tlio milk In the stomach. The bacteria in sour milk are supposed to act bene ficially. In Germany it is called yog hurt, produced by adding Bacillus bul garicus to milk. This generates lac tic acid in tlic stomach of the calves, which acts as a disinfectant, and pre vents the development of tlio hurt ful bacteria, and at the same time sti mulates the activity of the intesiine, probably by producing ;! fcrmeut that destroys the ' bacilli wliicli. give rise to scour.
AUSTRALIAN DAIRYING. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 2 May 1914
AUSTRALIAN DAIRYING. Within the. past ton years the dairy cows'of Australia have Increasedfrom one million to.above two millions. The butter produced in a single'year reach ed about .200,000,000 lbs. The annual export is vajued at between £3,000,000 and £1,000,000. No rural industry iii Australia is more progressive and none pays larger returns to the farmers. The mainstay of dairying is the export market, and easily th6 largest con sumers of Australian butter abroad are the people of the United Kingdom. It might be thought that the expense of carrying butter from Australia to London would be a serious handicap upon butter-making in the Common wealth. As a matter of fact, however, the Australian dairy farmer, in point of cost, is as close to London as the dairy farmers of Ireland or Scotland. The actual contract price of shipping butter from either Melbourne or Syd ney to London is lid. per lb.
WARTS ON TEATS. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 2 May 1914
- WARTS ON TEATS. Many people fail to get rid ol warts because tliey think it-can only be.done with, great dlfllculty, or by tearing the wart bodily away, but this is not the caBe. "When sows are milked twice a day it does not seem to afford much opportunity to get rid ot warts. To use any. substance of a poisonous nature for the wart is dangerous in many ways.,. When the teats are chapped only, some kind of soothing ointment should bo applied, and for this pur pose carbolised vaseline, and other preparations may be procured from the chemist. This will heal the teat up in a short time, and allow the milk ing to be carried on without any dis comfiture to the cow. In the case of warts, when small tlioy can generally be got rid of by touching them with- caustic soda. An other simple remedy, nnd one which in many caBes has been found to be successful; rub the wart with vinegar, then while it is still wet dust it with dry carbonate of soda. If tiiis is done after each milking, tlio warts...
GENERAL CARE AND FEEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Northcote Leader — 2 May 1914
GENERAL CARE AND FEEDING. No branch.of dairy farming is more Important than" the feeding and treat ment of cows; yet none is more gen erally neglected. The direct- influence iof wliat-the cow- eats and drinks upon tlie milk she. produces cannot'be too' strongly impressed upon'the attention of .the farmer. Of equal importance are: the' conditions under,, whicli. food and1 drink are taken. If cows are chased by dogs or over-driven, or wor ried' by boys on their way to pasture, their millc will surely show the effects in a'deterioration ofcquality. If their shelter in; winter or sliado In summer is' insufficient, or the food is not suf ficiently nutritive, the penalty will In variably be paid In a smaller milk yield. These restrictions are inevi table. . One of the greatest mistakes far mers make is iir supposing that they may :with impunity keep * their cows oil "short , commons'* during the win der and that they will fatten lip in the 'spring, and milk as well as ever.

No More Questions Asked. The Inhabitants of a certain county in England—we will not specify which —are especially distinguished by an Inordinate desire to become familiar with details of the private concerns of everyone with whom they come in to contact. Ilecently a stranger journeyed Into a village in .this county known as Mlrevillo, entered the local inn,' or dered refreshment, and Bat down. "Staying here, sir?" asked the land: lord. A brief nod was the reply. . "Business good, sir?" "I don't know what to make of It," said tho stranger.
