General Notes. TYPE PIG STIES AND COW BAILS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 April 1915

General Notes. TYPE PIG STIES AND COW BAILS. It is regretted that during the absence of the editor on leave, it was found neces sary to discontinue the publication of the series of articles commenced in the 1st. March issue, on Type Pig Sties and Cow Bails. Everything is now, however, in order for their continuance, and the next instalment, accompanied by sketches of some of the type bails, will be published next issue. The opportunity will be taken of including in the notes some additional suggestions that have been made by the Board of Health authorities, regarding little matters often overlooked by dairy men making a commencement, and per haps by older hands as well.

The Season s Watering. SOME GENERAL COMMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 April 1915

The Season s Watering. SOME GENERAL COMMENTS. At this period of the year it is rather a good thing to review the work done in regard to water distribution during the season, and compare it in some import ant respects with previous seasons' re sults. Judged by the standard of past years, considerable progress has been made during the present season, and if these lines of improvement are consist ently followed in succeeding years there will soon be little to complain of as far as water distribution on these areas is concerned. Less Water, More Cultivation.-Settlers are rapidly realising the truth of the statement so often made as to the bene fits to be derived from the application of less water and more cultivation. In all projects of the kind it is discovered as time goes on, by those who are on the land, that the maximum of cultivation and the minimum of water in a given period of time always leads to the best re sults being obtained. Settlers all over the Areas are realising, as a ...

THE BLESSING OF AN ASSURED WATER SUPPLY. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 April 1915

THE BLESSING OF AN ASSURED WATER SUPPLY. The newspapers of the various States which devote attention to irrigation mat ters all contain numerous references dur ing the last few months to the difficulties with which irrigationists on many of the Australian settlements have had to con tend during the recent drought. At Merbein, Mildura, and Renmark not only have settlers had to battle along with a very inadequate watev supply, but, in addition, it is reported that some of the crops and trees have been injured by the brackish or even salty nature of the water with which the farms have had to be irri gated. In the Goulburn Valley the con dition of things has been little better. .Difficulty there has been experienced ow ing to the scattered nature of the various irrigation settlements and the consequent great length of channel through which distribution has had to take place. The Rochester and Rodney districts have been receiving supplies from the Warranga Basin, but the level of the wat...

Being Behind the Times. AND WHAT IT LEADS TO. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 April 1915

Being Behind the Times. AND WHAT IT LEADS TO. During recent years very severe losses have been suffered by fruit growers in the coastal districts, particularly in the county of Cumberland, from "brown rot," a fungoid disease that does great damage to fruit, particularly when it is nearing the ripening stage. The trouble is most acute in wet seasons such as the present has been in the metropolitan area. For a considerable time the cause of this disease and its remedy have been well-known to the experts of the Depart ment of Agriculture, and full publicity has been given to the matter through the columns ofi the "Agricultural Gazette" and other journals which devote consider able space to agricultural matters. In spite of this, however, a communication was recently received by the Department of Agriculture from the Fruit Growers' Association, officially asking for advice as to the best means of treating "brown rot" in peaches, plums, & c. In an article dealing with the matter,...

Instruction Notes. PIG RAISING. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 April 1915

Instruction Notes. PIG RAISING. (By H. R. Alexander.) These notes are given covering the pig industry in a general way, as I feel at the present time there are many little points which the settler needs to be made familiar with. I propose, through the pages of the " Record,'' dealing individu ally with the different breeds of pigs, various crosses, and the recognised good points of such. I will also give notes on pig-feeding questions from time to time. Feeding of Pigs. The Advantage of Skim Milk. Many settlers complain of troubles with their young pigs, mostly when they are at the suckling and weaning stages. A case came under my notice to-day which is identical with several other similar in stances. The young pigs were doing badly, digestive troubles being apparent. The sow also looked somewhat harsh in the skin, and not what one would call thrifty. Inquiries revealed the fact that the pigs were being fed on very green im mature lucerne and corn stalks. No milk pollard swill or su...

THE SHOW EXHIBIT. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 April 1915

THE SHOW EXHIBIT. The illustration on this page will give settlers and other residents on the Irri gation Areas an idea of the nature of the '.Areas' exhibit at the Sydney Show this year. The space reserved by the Com mission for the exhibit was considerably larger than that of last year, consequently a much better opportunity was afforded for an effective display. Moreover, the development of the Areas meant a better iange of products to select from. Large photographs of life and work on the Areas formed one of the most inter esting features of the exhibit, and the manager of the Leeton Cannery also succeeded in showing very satisfactory evidence of what the factory can do. The great range of crops which the Areas are already producing was also well illustrated, and generally speaking the ex hibit was a distinct credit to the Areas and the officers who had the arrange ments in hand. In another portion of this issue reference is made to the success achieved by the Butter Factory in ...

WHEAT AND OATS FOR HAY UNDER IRRIGATION AT YANCO. (From the "Agricultural Gazette" of N.S.W.) [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 April 1915

WHEAT AND OATS FOR HAT UNDER IRRIGATION AT YANCO. (From the "Agricultural Gazette" of N.S.W.) In order to gather some idea of the yield of several varieties of wheat and oats when grown for hay under irrigation, plots were sown at the Yanco Experiment Farm of most of the varieties likely to do well under such conditions, together with a few unnamed varieties at present in the hands of the plant breeder. The seed was sown by hand at the rate of 201b. per acre, and superphosphate was applied at the rate of 601b. per acre. The drills were lOin. apart. The land previous to sowing was well worked and irrigated. The different plots each consisted of four rows, with a space of 2ft. 6in. between the plots. For the first two irrigations this space was fur rowed, and the water allowed to percolate through the plants, thus preventing the land to a large extent from setting hard. The last irrigation was applied by flood ing. The furrows in each instance were cultivated after irrigating. The see...

THE RUSH FOR FARMS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 April 1915

THE RUSH FOR FARMS. 'The rush for farms still continues, and the time is apparently not far off now when every farm available at present will have been allotted. Construction work has been slowed down owing to the financial conditions, but water will continue to be carried to fur ther areas at a good rate. Still, it is just a question as to whether the present rush is so very abnormal after all. Enough has now beien done to reveal the wealth that lies hidden in the soil of an irrigation farm on the Murrumbidgee Areas, and as time goes on these proofs will accumulate with leiver-increasing rapidity. Already tempting offers to transfer are being made to holders of blocks, and it is perhaps as well at this juncture to point out that until the five years' residence has been completed, trans fers can only be granted in cases of sick ness or other "adverse circumstances"; the course open for a man who for other reasons wants to leave his farm is to sur render and take tenant right in his ...
