COMPARISON OF WHEAT AND RAPE CROPS. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 20 January 1912
COMPARISON OF -WHEAT AND RAPE CROPS. Comparing the cost and value of the wheat and rape crops in tho rotation system,shows the rape in a very favour able light. "\Vhilo the cultivation and manure of the two crops are tho same, it requires three-quarters of a bushel to one bushel of wheat seed per acre at 3/6 per bushel, as against 31b. to 61b. of rape seed a 4d. per lb. Then, again, tho harvesting of the wheat as against the attention to the sheep and marketing the lambs gives better monetary results from tho rape crop. Moroover, the wheat has to stand through, those risky months— October and November—whereas all anxioty with rapo and lambs is over before then. Eight owes and lambs to the acre on a rrep. put in under this system is by no meaiis a high estimate: and Mr. Birks statics that he has had that num ber on rapo, not on fallow, for several years. With lambs at 8/- per head ana crediting the rape with part of the wool clip from tho ewes, such wool-crop be ing increased by the ...
RAPE AND BARLEY IN DRY AREAS. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 20 January 1912
RAl'E AND BARLEY IN DRY AREAS. As rotation of crops will be. of ne cessity, forced upon wheat-growers and mixed farmers generally, in the course of a- 1'ow years to enable tlio fertility of the soil to bo maintained, tlfo experi ences of practical farmers with certain kind of crops in dry areas are of value. At tne Dry Fanning Conference held in Adelaide last year, Mr. C. E. liirks, of Wandearah, read a paper showing that rape and barley can be grown with a low rainfall. • For fodder tJiese crops arc profitable, work in woll in a rotation, and help the wheat crop, which in tlio northorn farming areas of SoutJi Australia always occupies first plaqe. Mr. Birks pointed out thai over a large area of the north of South Aus tralia a thorough system of cultivation, or, befctor still, under dry farming practice, ana where wheat may be grown profitably, rapo and barley can also bo made to pay well so long as lambs can be sold in unlimited numbers at 7/6 or more per head, and butter at 9d. pe...

ROTATION FOR DAIRYING AND LAMB RAISING. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 20 January 1912
ROTATION FOR DAIRYING AND LAMB RAISING. Where fat lambs aro to be raised and cows kept for milking purposes, Mr. Birks found a. suitable rotation in— Fallow, 1'p.pe, barley, fallow, wheat, grass, grass.' The cultivation should be done under the dry-farming method. It must be thorough and done at the right timo. Tho soil must bo put into fine tilth for rape, and mustl be consolidated to ensure a good germination, and to con very the moisture cultivation to the plant.' When rape has germinated it can withstand a good spell without1 rain. Starting with rape and fallow, and noting the order of. rotation, it will be seen that it will noti be necessary to wait long after the first' rain before sowing the rape. In fact, in some soils rape may be sown before, and no harm will result it it have to lie for some weetcs in the ground before rata comes. The lew weeds l)iiat would come away on well-worked fallow where the seed sown immediately after the rain would not be a serious matter, for the...
CROP ROTATION REDUCES RICK. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 20 January 1912
CROP HOTATION REDUCES 11ISK. Growing three different crops instead of 0110 reduces the risk from loss in various ways. Tlio two important points in a rota tion are: to raise crops which will re turn the most value, ancl at the same time increase the fertility of tho soil; and to properly subdivide Alio farm for the respective crops. Mr. JJirks found that no regular ro tation can bo adopted unless the pad docks are of a somewhat uniform size. The smaller the paddocks the better for stocking purposes. The rotation to be adopted will de pend on the use to which the fodder crops are to be put. Whatever it it, care should bo taken that it permits the land to be ploughed as sooon as possible after the rape crop has been, fed off, so as to make the mosJ# of the manure and moisture -which results! from the feeding-off of the crop.

DAIRYING. LICE ON COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 20 January 1912
DAIRYING.' LICE ON COWS. Lice on cows seem to bo troublesome in many of the dairying districts, judg ing from tho number of inquiries re ceived by tho Department regarding Jtlio pest. The Long-nosed Cattle Louse .(Tlaematopinus vituli) is tho species In some cases the animals aro stated to be losing condition and going off in their milk supply. A mixture of kerosene andr softsoap woIJ rubbed into tho skin would soon have the effect of killing the lice. Mr. Max Henry, M.R.C.V.S., of this De partment, has made soma observations in tho matter, and his conclusions should be of much interest to users of milking machines and to thoso con templating using tliem. It has been said that the- machines caused hemorrhage of the udder; also inflammation of the udder known as mammitis; and with spreading con tagious mammitis.

DEPTH TO PLOUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 20 January 1912
DEPTH TO PLOUGH. The right depth to plough to givo best returns is largely governed by the character of the soil. It is a question tluit has given rise to much controversy and tins can hardly be wondered at in view of the diverse results from the various experiments. At one of tko branches of tho Agri cultural .Bureaux, tioulh Ausatralia, a long discussion took place on the sub ject, following a paper read by Mr. W. Lollor. Members cited several instances where deep ploughing—even as uecply as 10 inches—gave best results in i.om parativo tests. On tho other hand, one of the mosii successful wheat-growers in the district novel- ploughed laud of any kind deeper that 2 inches or inches, and yet his averako was ■ ■■'■i '2') bushels per acre oil all soils. He, however, used tho disc cultivator freely. Mr. Loiler mentioned the case of a fanner who ploughed a light soil &lt;1J inches deep, turning up abouti 2 inch's of clay, resulting in hardly any crjp; and it was three yearsi bef...
THE UNCLEAN MILKING MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 20 January 1912
THE UNCLEAN MILKING MACHINE. The unclean milking-machine will not spread contagious mammitis even as much as clean hands. Tlio experience at Hawkesburv College is a vory fine example of this fact; but no cow with a detective udder showing any lesion likely to be due to mammitis was. as far as possible( allowed to bo milked by- machine. Ibis is a point dairymen should bear in mind. To deliberately milk a diseased cow with n machine, then to milk a healthy one, and blame the machine for spread ing the disease, should the healthy cow contract iti, is distinctly unfair. The blame is 011 the farmer tor not keeping his diseased cows separate from his healthy herd. Yet there are many casos of con tagious mammitis, not obvious to tike! laymen, requiring somo skill and know-1 ledge in detection. in any district in which contagious lmunmias is present, the tanner Simula; havo his herd examined by a qualified veterinary surgeon, with a view ol putting any suspicious cows out of the nerd. 1'iii...
WHEN MILKING MACHINES ARE PROPERLY LOOKED AFTER. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 20 January 1912
WHEN MILKING MACHINES ARE PllOl'ERLY LOOKED AFTEft. There is nothing in the action of tho well-constructed milking machine of the present (lav which can of itself brint; about diseases of-tlio udder Mr. Henry contends. Nor can the machine, if pro perly looked • after, infect tho udder with- micro-organisms. The serious charge against tho milk ing machine—that it spreads contagious mammitis—may have some grounds in fact ivhen tho_ machine is kept in an unclean condition. Nor is it difficult to understand the reason why in soma pases it appears to sproad tho disease more rapidly tlian in tlxe case of liand willdng. In haud-milking the disease is spread! by the hands of the milkers, which, be coming moistened with infected milk while milking a dseased cow, are next used, wiilhout washing, to milk a healthy cow, often with disastrous re sults.
