WATER AND THE IjAND VALUING SETTLERS' AREAS USEI3 OP 'LUCERNE 'Mr John Roy, district supervisor, it? engaged in valuing- the settlers' im provements throughout the Rochester^ irrigation areas, and has completed the Nanneella valuations. He iwas to begin with the Bamawm and Ballendella valuations in the present week. There, is a gratifying result to record com pared with last year, especially in regard to the advance in cultivation. The Bamawm and Ballendella areas will show even better returns. "While the settlers' payments are not as for ward as the officials would like the improvements show a good margin on every hand. From now on the settlers' arrears should be appreciably reduced. A correspondent states that there is a good demand for lucerne in the truss, but settlers are inclined to hold their stocks in view of the idea' that there is a spell of dry weather ahead. The city agents advise lucerne growers to chaff and bag the fodder. Supplies are more saleable chaffed, and bring ...

FODDER CONSERVATION THE FOODS AVAILABLE. ECONOMICAL FEEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914

FODDER CONSERVATION THE FOODS AVAILABLE. ECONOMICAL FEEDING. Fodder conservation has come to be the settled practice on many Victorian farms, but there are still wheat grow ers in the drier areas who make no pre paration for times of stress. - It is handy to have a reserve of foodstuffs available for sheep and cattle as wo31 as the working horses. According to Mr W. P. Foulis, a Wil lowie (South Australia) landholder, every farmer owning 1000 acres or more , should endeavor to maintain a reserve | of from 200 to 800 tons of hay. This is not an easy matter. It will be ap parent long- before hay time that there is going to be a heavy yield; anticipate it, and have all other "work well in hand. "Make all arrangements for hay-mak ing early," he says. "Hire the neces sary laborers, have the binders in thorough; order. I have cora§ to the conclusion that two .binders are .aeoess sary. Many farmers cannot afford the first outlay, but. those who are 'n aj position to do so will find that it...

THOROUGH CULTIVATION SOME STRIKING RESULTS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914

THOROUGH CULTIVATION SOME STRIKING RESULTS The effect of good cultivation was very strikingly exemplified in some experiments carried out by the Go vernment agriculturist at Cape Colony; A piece of land was - selected and divided into plots. The plots were uni formly dressed with a complete fer tiliser, and, after being ploughed, a cultivator was run over the land and oats sown with the di'ill. Each suc cessive plot, however, had had one more ploughing than the' preceding one, and the effect was very obvious in the returns obtained:— . Plot , 1.—Ploughed once; yield, 7501b. oaten hay per acre. " Plot 2.—-Ploughed twice; yield, 10001b. oaten hay per acre. Plot 3. — Ploughed three times; yield, 18801b. oaten hay per acre. Plot 4. — Ploughed four -times; yield, 38001b. oaten hay per acre. Equally noteworthy results are re ported to have been obtained from plots of wheat and barley during the past year, although the plots were only ploughed and harrowed once each, the difference being i...

THE HORSE FOOT TROUBLES CORNS AND SAND CRACKS. CAUSES AND TREATMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914

FOOT TROUBtiES CORNS AND SAND CRACKS. CAUSES AND TREATMENT. Band crack Is the name given to any crack or fissure between the fibres of the hoof-wall (states the "Eng lish "Farmer and Stockbreeder"). It may begin from the top or the bot tom, may be quite superficial or extend right through the wall into the sensitive laminae from which blooa or matter may be oozing. The causes are defective secretion and insufficient gelatine. Brittle bones are caused by Insufficient gela tine or a disproportion between the mineral and animal constituents; so it is with hoofs. For that reason, horseowners try to doctor the bones and the feet by giving special foods and drugs which either supply the missing materials or enable the ani mal to appropriate them where needed. The weakness is present, but the final concussion results in the breach. Sand cracks may be ex pected to come on the inside quarter of the forefoot because it is there thin, and concussion is great. It may be looked for in the toe of...

j MONEY WANTED FOR ROADS COUNCIL SEE MINISTER Representations made on January 21' by members of the Orbost Shire Coun cil to Mr F. Hagelthorn, Minister for Public Works, indicated that notwith standing the appointment of the Coun try Roads Board and the liberal pro vision made by the State for helping the making of roads in rural districts;, local financial difficulties may still pre vent works being carried out. The Minister promised consideration'. It was stated by the deputation that the Country Roads Board proposed the construction of two roads through. Or bost to the New South Wales border. The roads were developmental in char acter, but the council was unable to pay half the cost as required by the act. Special consideration was asked as the roads would pass through a vast area of unalienated Crown lands which yielded no rates.

William Kolehmainen had a record of 2 hrs. 28 min. 32 sec. for the 26 miles, so there was some thing certainly wrong in Holmer's perform ance, as Q. Dinning, of England, and Koleh mainen, two noted distance men, had filled the places.

CO-OPERATIVE COMPANIES [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914

Bv " BUNYIP." This journal has always been Insistent upon the necessity and value of co operation among the primary producers. It is quite superfluous at this late day to elaborate its advantages. Co-opera tion has proceeded ,&t a comparatively slow pace in Victoria, because the population is scanty and scattered, and co-operation thrives best where men can gather together a,nd take thought with one another. Hirtvever, in spite of this difficulty the co-operative "butter factory has fcaen a familiar object in ; the land, and has been a highly bene ficial institution to the producer, pro viding him a ready and steady market and being an indispensable link in the chains which connects the producer with .the consumer, eliminating, though only to a certain extent, the opera tions of the middleman. Small wonder that enterprising private individuals should have started proprietary fac tories of their own, and, strange to say, are even invading the territories which slxould be sole...
