SHEEP AND FAT LAMBS. STIMULATING INTEREST, BIG POSSIBILITIES. No. I. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 29 May 1914
SHEEP AND FAT LAMBS. STIMULATING INTEREST, BIG POSSIBILITIES. No. I, The Director of Agriculture of South Australia, (Professor Lowrie) has an abounding faith in the possibilities of the fat lamb industry, and on several occas ions lately be has hammered into the farmers the desirableness of ke'ping sheep on their holdings, and indicated the advantages to be obtained by growing special fodder crops for their maintenanc,ý. In the course of a forceful address at the conference at Gladstone last week he crntended that the greatest developement in agricultural practice that could be made at the moment, and the most profi able one, was the better manage ment of sheep on the farm. The agri ulturalists had become so accustomed to pay their whole attention to wheat, that the other factors which made for the wealth of the output were to a large ex tent lost sight of. Ile did not advocate that less attention'should be devoted to that product for which those regions were so admirably adapted, ...

Family Notices [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 29 May 1914
IN MEMORIAM LAWLESS-In memory of our late beloved &nbsp; husband and father, John Lawless. Died 7th May, 1912. Oh, husband dear, I feel thy loss, I miss thy dear face so : Deep in my heart I mourn for thee, More than my tears can show. Through days and nights he bore his pain, To wait for cure was all in vain; But God alone, who loved him best, Did ease his pain and gave him rest, Worthy of true respect was he, Of those he left behind; A better friend in need never lived, More true, upright, honest and kind. All those who have a father Love him while you may; He will not always linger, Too soon he'll pass away. -Inserted by his wife and family,

SHEEP AND FAT LAMBS. STIMULATING INTEREST, VARIOUS FODDER CROPS. No. II. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 5 June 1914
SHEEP AND FAT LAMBS. STIMULATING INTEREST, VARIOUS FODDER CROPS. No. 11, The crops in the public attention at present were peas, rape, mustard, Ita lian rye grass, and vetches. Peas were not ascendant. If they tried the others in the normal seas o, they would very likely find that peas did not work out the most profitable. They should get this crop right round the farm in a cycle of a few years. Under similar condi tions, in a season when the weather broke at the end of March or the begin ning of April, they would find that rape with a little mustard seed mixed, or bar ley, would produce more feed than peas. The average carrying capacity fr the last three years, of 2-acre blocks of land, ploughed up and sown to Italian rye grass at Aldinga, had been 10.6 sheep for five months. Of course, if the sheep had been put in for live months contin uosly the land would not have carr;ed that number. A large number had been put in for a short period, and when they had eaten the feed down they w...
