OUR HORSE COLUMN. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 2 May 1906

OUR HORSE COLUMN. By 'Childe Harold.' Horseowners in the vicinity of Sydney are becoming rather alarmed at the ap pearance of the bot-fly in many of the suburban paddocks. The fly itself is about the size of a bee, and the horses gallop about wildly in their attempts to escape from the insect, which lays its eggs in the hair of the horse. In a few days the eggs arc ready to be hatched, when the horse in licking itself touches the egg, it bursts, and a small worm escapes, which adheres to the tongue, and is conveyed with the food to the stomach, where it remains, attach ed by two little hooks, until the time ar rives for it to be evacuated with the dung. * * * The maggot being thus thrown out, seeks shelter in the ground, becomes a grub, and in a few weeks, bursting from its confinement, assumes the form of a fly. Tn England the bot-fly is not con sidered injurious to the horse, but several horses have died about Sydney, and in at least one case which this writer heard about, a post-...

BARREN JACK IRRIGATION SCHEME. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 2 May 1906

BARREN JACK IRRIGATION SCHEME. Further evidence has been taken be fore the Parliamentary Standing Com mittee on Public Works upon the Barren Jack reservoir and irrigation scheme. Mr. A. L. Lloyd, chief surveyor of the J'ublic Works Deparment, said he thought it advisable to so concentrate the whole scheme by gradually getting the settlers closer together. In Mr. Lloyd's opinion, the Government should go very slowly in taking up any scheme. Very few farmers had any knowledge of irrigation.

SHOW MILKING CONTESTS. ALLEGED FAKING IN VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 2 May 1906

SHOW MILKING CONTESTS. ALLEGED FAKING IN VICTORIA. The investigation by the committee of the Royal Agricultural Society of Vic toria into allegations made by Andrew Adams against Mr. G. T. Chirnside, of Werribec, with regard to the milking contest at the 1502 Exhibition, took place ..1st Wednesday. It was alleged by Adams that he had purchased cream for Wingatc, Chirnsidc's troom, and some syringes, by which it was proposed to secretly inject cream into the udder or the cow, which was in the milking competitions. Wingatc's evidence was to the effect that the cow was restless and off Us food, and after getting permission from Hastie he obtained a gallon of cream from Adams, and gave some of it in a , bran mash to the cow. He denied ever having asked Adams to get him two syringes, or having s'aid that he would teach the colonials a thing or two. Two witnesses, workmen, alleged that Adams had said he was to get ,£100 from Chirnside for 'faking' a cow, .,£50 of which was as good as in h...

THE PRIZE MILK COWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 2 May 1906

THE PRIZE MILK COWS. A noted Ayrshire breeder claims to have bred Mr. Wedlock's three milk prize cows. Mr. R. H. Antill, of Jarvisfield, Pieton, writes as follows : ' ' While giving every credit to the winners of prizes with dairy stock, 1 think some mention should be ?made in such events as milk records of the breeder. Iu the big butter test event lock's cow, Success, was second, and in the prize given for the cow giving the largest quantity of milk Mr. Wedlock was first, second, and third, with Model, Suc cess and Dairvinaid, giving respectively 2011b. lloz., 1771b. Soz., and 1681b. 14oz. All these cows were bred by me, and carry my brand. ' ' Without doubting for a moment Mr Autill's veracity, as to the origin of Mr. Wedlock's cows, after 25 years' practical experience in a stockyard among Ayrshires and their crosses, tho writer would like to' see the bull' that sired those cows.

A WORD IN FAVOR OF THE CHANNEL ISLAND CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 2 May 1906

A WORD IN FAVOR OF THE CHANNEL ISLAND CATTLE. The 'Journal of Agriculture' of South Australia publishes an article from the 2)en of Mr. Coleman, Tuela, Saddleworth, who says : — 'While I do not put so much importance upon pureness of breed as se lection, I favour the Channel island cattle, and of these put the Guernsey before the Jersey as a fanner's cow. There I find both healthy and hardy, standing the hot, dry summers in open paddocks remarkably well.' ' ' They come into profit almost too young,' says Mr. Coleman; but this, ac cording to no less an authority than David llyam, of. Terrara, is a quality or charac teristic of the Jersey which, instead of be ing a fault, is much in her favour. 'In selecting my cows,' says Mr. Cole man, 'I weigh their milk, and test its quality with the Babcock tester, dispos ing of those under 4 per cent, butter fat, unless the cow has many other good points.' As to what good points are, he falls back on the description of the points of an Ayrshire c...

BUTTER ADULTERATION. A writer in 0110 of tho daily papers has touched a very sore spot in connection with tho general management of the dairy ing industry of this State. He says : — 'Your issue of April 14 gives an ac count of some business transacted by tho butter oxport committee at its final moot ing,' held at the Coastal Farmers' Coope rative Society's offices the clay before. Tt is unquestionable that to niauy or. the far mers who arc true co-operators the meet ings held nt the above company's offices always appear to bo conducted on lines which have previously been laid clown, aud I for 0110 am a believer in tho necessity of having all such meetings hold where tho individual policy of 0110 of our throe largo co-operative selling institutions will ' not always bo casting its shadow over all co-operative business.

It is said that sales of live stock on the Upper Richmond have averaged over ten. thousand pounds per month lately. Toa many sales show an unsettled state of things.
