Dairy Sanitation. (Continued from last issue.) [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 February 1915

Dairy Sanitation. B7 M. A. O'CALLAGHAN. (Continued from last issue.) The Protective Action of Fat and the Lactic Acid Germs.-ThefaHin the cream is also a protective agency, because it is not a suitable food for germs. Fat is really a preservative ag^nt in cream. If you remove all the albuminoids from the fat or from any animal oil, it is not a /ood that will support bacteriological life. There is another great factor which has been provided by nature for the protec tion of people from the unclean dairy pro duce, viz., what are known as the germs that help in preventing putrefaction. I refer to tbe lactic acid producing germs, or, as we have termed them in our dis cussions this week, the policemen of, the industry. Where milk has been produced, lactic acid germs are present in myriads. They carry on a constant fight with putre factive germs in the miik. If the farmer is at 'all clean, if he gives the lactic acid producing germs 'a fair5 start, they will prevent a great deal of deteri...

ADVANCES BY THE GOVERNMENT SAVINGS BANK. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 March 1915

ADVANCES BY THE GOVERNMENT SAVINGS BANK. One of the last official acts of the late Mr. Wade was to bring under the notice of the late Minister for Lands, the Hon. J. L. Trefle, the need for the continu ance of advances to settlers by. the Gov ernment Savings Bank Commi^sionjers. The late Commissioner made the pro position, and the Minister very readily recommended it for the consideration of the Hon. the Premier, that a sum of £25,000 be made available in this connec tion as early as possible. The Premier approved of this course of action, and settlers will no doubt be glad to hear that complete arrangements have now been made for allocating this sum. At tbie request of the Manager, Murrumbidgee Irrigation Areas, a special officer has been made available by the Savings Bank Cojnmissioners to inspect the holdings of applicants, and it is hoped those settlers who desire advances on their improve ments will be able to obtain them within a reasonably short period.

THE LATE COMMISSIONER. It would be impossible to publish the very many tributes received as to the worth of our late Commissioner, but the following letter received from Mr. T. H. Houghton, honorary secretary to the In stitute of Civil Engineers, may be re garded as typical of the esteem and affec tion which was felt by all who came into oersonal association with the late Mr. L. A. B. Wade: Mrs. Wade, 77 Beach-road, Rush cutters' Bay, Sydney. Dear Madam, At the last meeting of the Advisory Committee of the Institute of Civil Engineers representing the members resident in this State, I was instruct ed to convey to you, and the mem bers of your family;)! our foeartffelt sympathy in the irreparable loss which you have sustained.

In submitting an application, the time for which the temporary premises will be re quired before demolition should be de finitely stated.

Mirrool Cheese Factory. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 March 1915

Mifrool Cheese Factory. BT H. R. ALEXANDER. The late Commissioner was very anxious that the Mirrool Cheese Factory should soon be in operation and progress ing satisfactorily. The plant is being secured, and will be installed immediately the building is handed over by the build ing department, which it is hoped will be in the course of a month or six weeks from date of writing (25/1/15). A good quality cheese can be produced at Mirrool, and by utilising the organisa tion of the local agency of the Coastal Farmers' Society, which is now handling the dairy produce of the Areas, an ex cellent local market can be tapped * in Riverina, and in the south-western and central-western portion of the State gen erally, when the Barellan line is complet ed, as it will be in a few months. From information gathered there is no reason to doubt that the bulk of the cheese made at Mirrool for some time to come will be all absorbed in the districts mentioned. This means that the Mirrool suppliers will...

THE FLOWER GARDEN. (J. T. D.) [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 March 1915

THE FLOWER GARDEN. (J. T. D.) Plantlings of seed sown in February or early March should now be ready to put out. Plant in rows in masses, plants and rows about 16in. apart, with the excep tion of lupins, which should be 2ft. from each other. Phlox and pansies are very effective as a border-say two rows of plants in front of a bed of stocks, lupin, larkspur, &c. Choose, if possible, a dull day for trans planting, and, otherwise, transplant in the evening. Shade the plants for four or five days on the west and northern sides with a shingle. Water well immediately after transplanting. When putting out the plants, don't forget to firm the soil round the roots-roots of plants do not like free air. Some plants transplant badly, notably taprooted plants. Hunnemannia and eschscholtzia belong to this class. Give these special care.

Cow Bails and Milking Yards. (Continued from last issue.) [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 March 1915

Cow Bails and Milking Y ards. (Continued from last issue.) Plan 1.-Plan 1 shows a cow shed of a type which can be built to a size to suit the requirements of any particular set tler. The dimensions of the bails are given, and the yard and shed in the plan is adapted to the requirements of a dairy man with a herd of about twenty cows and operating with four hand milkers. With larger herds a larger yard is advis able or, as a matter of fact it would be better still to have two yards, a larger < one leading into a smaller yard than shown, which opens directly on to the bails. By the use of a second yard much trouble is obviated, particularly if there is a bad-tempered animal, which delights in horning her fellows, the big yard gives the other cows room to get out of her way. For a small herd, however, one yard of the size shown is usually sufficient. As explained in the general remarks, published in the first in stalment of these notes, a detailed speci fication can be obtai...

STAKING AND PRUNING TOMATOES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 March 1915

STAKING AND PRUNING TOMATOES. The question has been raised as to whether tomatoes staked and pruned pay for the labor expended. Experiments recently tried at the Vege table Experimental Plot tend to show that the practice does pay. Plants sown on the same date and receiving similar treatment in other respects have given results which have been strongly in favor of staking. The following facts are worthy of notice: (1.) The staked plants fruited three weeks before their unstaked companions. The amount of fruit which ripened dur ing those three weeks on the staked vines was practically one ton per acre. At current market prices a settler staking his vines would have received a return from the marketing of the early ripened tomatoes during the three weeks referred to of from 30/ to 40/ per cwt., equal to £30 or £40 per acre. (2.) By staking tomatoes, 2000 addi tional plants per acre can be grown suc cessfully. The numbers given by the officer in charge of the experimental plot are 5000...

DRIED FRUITS INDUSTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 March 1915

DRIED FRUITS INDUSTRY. The Inter-State Commission recently held an inquiry into the present position of the dried fruits industry. In the course of that inquiry the table published hereunder was submitted. It gives the average yield per acre in Mildura for the last eight (8) years of currants, sultanas, and lexias. Not only is the gross value given, but the cost of production, &c., and the net value per acre. The figures should be extremely interesting to grow ers and intending growers on the Murrum bidgee Irrigation Areas. It will be seen that as far as lexias are concerned, they are anything but a profitable crop, even at the present time, and the prices from currants and sultanas are not nearly as high on the average as they were some years ago. It was further stated in evi dence before the Commission that the average acreage in bearing considered in compiling the table was 6835, and the average production of dried fruits there from worked out at 5835.

Life-Giving Lime. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 March 1915

Life-Giving Lime. The old card player's adage, " When in doubt, lead trumps," might with a little alteration be made a suitable motto for most farmers all the world over. "When in doubt apply lime" is a "little bit of ad vice that farmers would do well to re member. Possibly it would do no harm to recall some of its virtues. It removes acidity, sets free valuable plant food, liberates ammonia and fother valuable constituents of humus, fixes nitrogen, and theri stores it for use as plant food, im proves the texture of both light and heavy soils-the ". one it makes heavier and the other more open and easily work ed. In addition to all these good quali ties, however, it must be remembered that lime itself is a plant food of no. mean or der. How To.

How to Lose Money in Dairying. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 March 1915

- How to Lose Money in Dairying. By following these rules any dairy farmer can in sure the failure of his business, says Prof. G. W. Barnes, farm adviser on live stock of the University of Arizona Agricultural Exten sion Service: 1. Use scrub bulls. This will run down any herd in quick time. 2. Let the bull run with the cows. This will make their milk yield fall off arid their calves come when least desired. 3. Do not test the cows for milk production or but ter fat. In this way the poor cows will lose enough money in a year to buy several good ones. 4. Keep only the heavy-eating cows which produce little milk. 5. Raise only the heifers from non-producing cows. G. Feed sour and rotten feeds. 7. Dq not supply pure water, but make the cows drink out of mudholes. 8. Furnish no shade during the summer months. 9. Have no shelter for the cows in cold and in clement weather. This will reduce the milk flow from 35 to 50 per cent. 10. Milk at irregular intervals. 11. Hire rough milkers who d...
