SPAYING AND SEX. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
SPAYING AND SEX. At the meeting of the Wilmington ?branch' of the Agricultural Bureau. South Australia, recently, Mr. Slee reported on experiments which he had carried out with a view to as certain if it was possible to control the sex of animals' by spaying. He stated that in October, 1908, he spay ed four two-year-old heifers. The near side ovary was removed from two, and the'off-side organ from the other two.' He also took the tip off the horn on the side spayed in each case, so that there might be no pos sibility of mistake. In June, 1910, a hqifer which had been operated upon on the near side calved a heifer calf, and in the same month, and in July the two heifers spayed on the off side also had heifer calves. The re maining heifer had a bull calf in Oc tober. It was, therefore, his opinion that the removal of one ovary would not control the sex of the offspring. A consignment of ten cases of cheese, sent from Mount Tyson, Q., realised prices equal to the top price realised by ...
DEHORNING BULLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
DEHORNING BULLS. The bull is a source of endless trouble and annoyance to the dairy farmer, because of his noble contempt for ordinary gates and fences. Even barbed wire is not always respected by him. Very few bulls over the age of five years can be trusted to re main outside of a paddock of green feed. The poley breeds are more amenable to control than the horn ed, and for this reason will, in the future, come into favour. At pre sent tne red-polled milking strain is almost unknown in N.S. Wales, out side the Government herd. Iiorns are an absolutely useless and actively injurious appendage to domesticated cattle. The horrors that a truck load of fat bullocks endures during, a long train journey should dispose any hu mane man to welcome the advent of the poleys. Small landholders who breed their own bulls would be well advised to prevent the growth of horns by the application of > caustic soda, when the horns- first appear.v#A- ? bull of a horned breed, without horns may appear...
LARGEST CHEESE FACTORY IN THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
LARGEST CHEESE FACTORY IN THE WORLD. While Australia can boast of the world's greatest butter factory, Byron Bay, New Zealand, * trots along the champion cheese factory. Both are pretty tall achievements, considering that the dairying indus try is not a very great age in these parts of the world. This colossus of the Dominion is situated at River dale. It , is, of course, one of the sights of the district, and every visi tor who is /worth notice is taken round to see the institution. The Scottish Commissioner, Mr. Dunlop, was, of course, shown the factory, and right Avell did he enjoy the visit. His opinion is worth something, too, for he has been all over the factories in Canada and other parts, and seen everything in the. line that is worth seeing. He Avas very much struck with the work performed by the whey pasteuriser, a simple apparatus, de signed by the manager, Mr. Cooper, on a simple regenerative plan. It puts no less than 5000 gallons of whey through in the hour. Another in...

TOO MUCH TALK. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
TOO MUCH TALK. A correspondent from Woodville writes:-Some of our friends, in their well-meaning enthusiasm, no doubt, have fixed what is absolutely a fair maximum rate, in place of a fair minimum rale. It must be remem bered that the man with his five bush els to the acre crop, will have to 'pay the same wages as the man with his 50 bushels to the acre crop, if an award is made, lie is a bad general who places his plan of campaign in his enemy's hands, and his qualifica tions are increasingly diminished when he also provides him with arms and ammunition wherewith to fight him. If Ave are not exactly doing this, I think in some instances we are getting perilously near to it. Any information appearing in our official organ which may be to the advantage of our friend, the enemy, will no doubt be worked for all it is worth when the case comes on. Hence the need to be cautious. We are all agreed that insofar as the farming industries can afford it, a. fair minimum wage should be paid, a...

ANOTHER BRANCH WANTED. Mr. A. M. Wilson, of Goolmangar, Richmond River, writing to the gene ral secretary, Mr. T. I. Campbell, says:-"Some time ago I received a letter from you with reference to forming a branch of the above As sociation in this district. I brought the matter up for discussion at our local monthly progress association, but we only had a small meeting that night, so it was decided to again discuss it at the forthcoming meet ing on the 13th of this month, when it will be proposed to wind up the progress association, and start a branch of the F.S.A. Most of the dairymen about here seem at last aroused to the fact that some such' union must be entered into to protect us from the demands of the R.W.U., and now is the time for us to be up and doing. If you have any lecturer coming to these places, you might let me know, and we could arrange for a meeting, and have the aims and the claims of the F. & S.

NETTINGS AND FENCING WIRES. Users of wire nettings have now ,go.t ..to, face somewhat .higher prices than inose of a week back, that is for Lysaght's locally manufactured net tings, which have been raised about 2%, per . cent, all .round, representing from 10/ to 15/ per mile advance on previous rates, according to the quality and description of the net tings. This movement in the locally produced article lias tended to streng then the position of imported brands, some holders 'now asking an extra 5/ for standard sizes. Business in fenc ing wires has been quiet, and the tone of the market here seems a shade easier; the-fact of the matter being that holders have been cut ting rates rather than loSe. sales.

CITY YARDS. Fair supplies still continue to come forward^ the past week's yardings to talling 1600. Porkers and baconers Quality in all sections was of a liigli standard, particularly the porker. The demand for heavy porkers on Friday last Avas far from good, and a big fall had. to^he;accepted, to effect sales.' Light weights were ' in good reqiiest at firm figures. Medium weights, although a little easier, sold very satisfactorily. Bacon pigs, not too heavy, received a fair amount of atterition,..noi'alteration-;>being: notice able on, previous quotations. Others were dull and difficult to quit. Back fatters were greatly in want of buy ers, even at unreasonably low figures. Tuesday's market, although a good supply of porkers were offered, proved to be much better values for rlu-se classes, being 2/ per head better than Friday, light and medium weights,, in many instances, being as much as 4/.

JAPANESE AND WOOL FACTORIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
JAPANESE AND WOOL FACTORIES. A most interesting question for Australia is the position of Japan as a wool-manufacturing country. This matter has been referred to before, but it is important enough to receive further attention. During the present wool season in Sydney the trade had its eyes opened at the very exten sive, purchases made by the buyers representing that very progressive little country in the Orient. To some people interested it .came as a revela tion. Not only was their buying heavy, but their competition had a most stimulating effect upon the mar ket. It is qiiite plain that as a result of Japan's advance as a manufacturing "Hayes' Fido"-Bought for Mr. A. Hordern. country she is going to become one of Australia's very best custuiuors for wool. Next July will sue a .new tai'flf introduced into that i-oiintry, which has been specially designed to foster the woollen industry. The reason for the introduction of duties' as high as 300 to 500 per cent, on wool coatings is th...

SHOCKING NEGLECT. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
SHOCKING NEGLECT. It is little use dairymen undertak ing pig production unless they get a,way from the foolish and ruinous idea that anything will do the swine. They seem to expect that when in troducing the animals into their yards that they are going to turn .them into lots of money because they hear that some one else is making a :success of the game. But they will .do the very opposite without some :sense is exercised in carrying out this important branch of farming. It used to be said that the pig wag the gentleman that paid the rent. There .are grave doubts about the rent-pay ing capacity of some of the herds in many of the districts, even the most .progressive. It is not the fault of the swine, either. They are just as .able to equip the banking account for the rent day now as ever they -were, if not more so. But the far mer's methods are to blame. The idea seems to be persisted in that the pig is a dirty animal, and that it should all the time be treated as a scavenger which...

Dairying. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
Dairying. Practical dairy farmers who have tried it, have great faitli in the use of linseed meal or crushed linseed, added to skim milk or separated milk as the best substitute for.^he abstrac ted butter fat, when tlie milk is being fed to calves. Linseed, they argue, more nearly approaches in composition the solids in milk than any ..other food. One farnfer practises the plan of feeding the calves for the first week on milk alone, and then gradually adds the linseed meal. I'he Sunlight preparations are good. Advices received in New Zealand are to the effect that it Avill not be long before the cheese manufactured in the Dominion will enjoy the same popularity in London as Canadian. A Goulburn Valley farmer has come to the opinion that it pays better to give the skim milk back to the cows than feeding it to calves and pigs. It increases the flow of milk, lie says. If this were not done he estimates that lie would be ob liged to reduce his herd of 24 cows to 20. As evidence of the r...

£17 PER TON FOR POTATOES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 March 1911
£17 PER TON FOR POTATOES. ' Caution is very necessary in all pur suits, and prevention is always bet ter than cure for all disease. Still, there is such a thing as being over cautious, and the Western Australian Gqivernment were this when they placed the restriction on the impor tation of potatoes, prohibiting the .landing of any tubers from any dis trict less than 35 miles from an area infected with Irish blight. . This has had ;the effect of practically cutting-' off their potato supply, and in Perth consumers have had to pay up to £17 per ton. None of the potato Heias in Victoria are, so it is said, ?35 miles distant from an affected : area,, so that this sour,ce .of. supply, a large factor in the requirements of "W.A., has been shut off. The West Australian Government now propose to import seed potatoes from the United Kingdom.
