FILLING THE SILO USEFUL HINTS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914

FILLING THE SILO USEFUL HINTS The quality of silage is determined to a great extent by the condition of the maize when cut and the care used in filling1 the silo. The question of the proper time to cut maize and store in the silo has been much discussed and studied. Experience and careful study of results show that the best silage is made from maize that is cut and put into the • silo, at the time the kernel dents and begins to harden. At this stage the maize has practically at tained maturity and its full maturity is developed. This, of course, will depend to some degree on the kind of maize which is grown. Some varieties of maize dent easier than others, and care should be taken not to let the maize become too dry Dry maize fodder | does not pack and exclude the air as J well as that which contains a con siderable amount of moisture. If the use of over-dry fodder cannot be avoided, its disadvantages can be over come, in a measure, by adding water as the maize is put into the silo....

THE DAIRY QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Butter Fat.—Dairy Farmer (Warragul).— There are 9.071b. of Gutter fat in 1891b. ot milk tfcat 'tests 4.8 per cent., and 11.521b. ot butter fat in 1891b. of milk that tests 6.1 per cent. The rule is to multiply the -weight of milk by the test figures and divide by 100. In regard to the first calculation 189 multiplied by 4.8 equals 907.3. This sura divided by 100 gives a butter fat content of 9.071b. The average test of the nine samples of milk 'would be 4.8 per cent. This is aa j certained by adding all the tests and dividing the result by nine.

TESTING DAIRY COWS VALUE OF THE WORK RESULTS IN SCOTLAND GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914

VALUE OF THE WORK RESULTS IN SCOTLAND GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE By "CASEIN." In various parts of the world where dairying1 is carried on, the necessity for testing- cows regularly is recog nised. It has been found that excel lent results are obtained by the for mation of herd improvement socie ties. This method of increasing the milk yield has become general in Denmark, and the observance of the system in Great Britain leaves no room for doubt regarding the benefits. The educational committee of the Lancashire County Council recently issued a report giving the results of four years' demonstration work in the keeping of milk records. The object, or at least the principal object, in con ducting these tests was to furnish facts to convince farmers of the de sirability of keeping records. The committee, being of the opinion that the objects for which the tests were begun have been achieved, have now resolved to discontinue them, and as some of the farmers whose herds were used for the inves...

DAIRY SUPERVISION QUESTION OF CONTROL. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914

DAIRY SUPERVISION QUESTION OF CONTROL. At the quarterly meeting- of the Chamber of Agriculture last week; Mr J. Zwar, of Kilmore, introduced the question of dairy supervision. He: said it was ridiculous" for the State to have two different systems of supervision as at present. The municipal supervision was considerably cheaper, but he did not thixxii it was as thorough as the Government system. One or other of these systems should be put aside, arid he believed that it would be in the interests of the State to have all milk supervision under Government con trol. He moved that, the council sup port this view. • Speaking against the motion, Mr T. M'Cullough, Warrnambool, said that municipal supervision cost' 12/6, as against £3/15/ for the Government system. In many districts the Govern ment supervision did not give as much satisfaction as the municipal. Mr Schwieger explained that at pre sent Government supervision extended over about one-third of the State. It was optional for the d...

Cole, the Coroner, at the Morgue on January 17, after inquiring- into the death of Wil liam Charles Batten, 52, dairy produce merchant, of Sunshine.

FARMER AND WORKER ALLIANCE SUGGESTED [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914

FARMER AND WORKER ALLIANCE SUGGESTED In the course of an address at the Australian Workers' Union Hall last evening on the subject of the "Farmer and the Trades Hall," Senator Barnes contended that the farmer and thq worker had nothing to lose by being allied. They had, he said, a common interest, and a common enemy in the middleman, who was over-prospering at the ex pense of each, and to whose interest it was that both the farmer and the worker should be politically at oppo site ends. The Labor party had suc cessfully managed the task of winning over the average worker, as in 25 years the- ranks of organised industrialists had increased from 50,000 to 430,000. They were now out for the man on the land, and there was not the least doubt that he would be won over.

WIRELESS OUT BACK EACH STATION ITS PLANT NEW SCHEME SUGGESTED [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 24 January 1914

' WIRELESS OUT BACK' EACH STATION ITS i PLANT NEW SCHEME SUGGESTED - Station.owners who live miles from telegraph or telephone lines may be accommodated, with their own wire less stations. This is an extension of a branch of the business of the Post and Telegraph Department. Mr Wynne, Postmaster-General, said that, after having conversed with some large station owners, he was satisfied that, if the department gave their permission, they would erect wireless stations on their own premises, provided that the department put up a station at the end of the nearest telegraph or tele phone line to act with theirs. He had not gone into the details of the scheme", but had mentioned it to Mr Balsillie, the wireless expert, and he thought that it was feasible. A station to "cover 50 miles might cost between £200 and £300. It was not difficult to operate. Most of the large stations employed bookkeepers, - and they could learn to send and receive messages after two months' practice. The only cha...
