DAIRYING. THE PURPOSE OF A DAIRY. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 15 April 1914
DA I FY IN G. -4-+- THE PURPOSE OF A DAIRY. Tho dairy is supposed by many to be a place solely for keeping butter and other products mado therofrom, but too ofteon, on some of our colonial farms, it is turned into a general stor' ago room, 'Meat, salting .troughs for bacon, apples and onions i're only a very few of the articles that there find a place, Seeing that milk is so easily tainted by such surroundings, no won dor that much butter is offered to the public of inferior quality, and of bad flavor. And it is not going too far to assert that about half the rancid butter arises through the milk or cream being tainted by impure air in the dairy, There are, of course, many other causes of bad butter, such as imr proper feeding of cows, badly kept utensils, effluvia from the yard, and carelessness in general management Absolutoly pure air in the dairy in an Indispensablo condition to ensure good butter, yet a good many dairies lack this precious pure element, which one would think ea...

BUTTERFAT IN CHEESE. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 15 April 1914
BUTTERFAT IN CHEEBE. if a cow gives a milk containing more than 5 per cent, of fat, it is too rich for economical choeso-maklng, an all the fat cannot be confined in the cheose. It may be stated that a good butter cow is a good cheeose cow, pro. vided the percentage of fat does not exceed 5 per cent, The larger the per contago of fat the larger the poroen tage of casein. There is a true aaying that "the solids follow the fat." That is, if the milk be high in fat percentage, the other solids are high; if the milk be low in fat percentage the other solids are low. Dairymen are realising more and more every day that it is not the quantity of milk that gives them their profit, but the quality; that it is the amount of butterfat and casoin the milk contains and the cost of produo. tion of both. The solution of these factors is the key to suceoes in the selection of the profitable dairy cow. Nothing can be made or grown on the farm which brings as much per pound as butter.
DIRTY, UNTHRIFTY CALVES. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 15 April 1914
DIRTY, UNTHRIFTY CALVES. We wore in a man's stable last win ter looking at his cows and calves. The calves in particular were covered with manure, and the place whore they were forced to lio was so wet with urine that the sound of it was heard as we walked over it. The man had plenty of straw. Thero was a big stack of it rotting down in his field. The calves looken htnthrlfty and poorly in every respect. We told him that he needed to call his wife to the utabl)l and take some advice from her, for any woman knows that one of the chief things in keeping a baby healthy and vigorous is to keep him dry and, clean. All that ailed this man was that he was trying to raise calves without real calf knowledge, He wouldn't be. lhve it, for ho said he had raised calves all his life. That is easy enough. The calves told the story, however. "Hoard's Dairyman,"

THE COMMONWEALTH BANK, THIE uggestion for tho elimination of the Ssvioge Bank branch of the Com. monwealth BAnk made at the Premiere' Oonferenco should certainly have received support from all concerned, The Federal Parliament has given the Governor of the Commonwealth Bink alnmob autocratic power in its manage. ment, This is a factor that may be inconvenient in this particular conneo (ioo, hub ib is one that all who bavo studied the asujeot thoroughly approve of, I? would be disastrous to the Institution if political control were allowed to creep in, Such iifluenco would mean not only the downfall of the bank, but a distinctly bad effect upon the politicians, Tho legislature has a well defined function to perform, Ib is indispensable in this, and while membere of Parliament confine their energies to law making and to the provision and criticism of a Ministry they are doing good work, When tley interfere with tho aotivities of the Government they are liable to go astray.
