EXPERIMENTS WITH FERTILISERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 30 April 1914

EXPERIMENTS WITH FERTILISER8. Every man must study his own soil and crop conditions. Experiment eta. tions may practise from now until the end of time, and still not be able to answer the question for the Individual farmer. Principles can be established, the needs of different crops can be learned, the composition of fertllseors can be determined, chemical and phy. slcal' analyses may show wherein soils differ; but when it comes to the question of the profitable rse of fertil. isers, each farm, each paddock must answer for' itself. That Is, careful, intelligent and accurate experiments must be carried on by every farmer, gardener, and orchardist who wishes to settle this point. In all fertiliser experimental work it Is important that tihe land used be as uniform In soil condltlon and previous manuring and cropping as can be procured. The size of plots may vary according to the nature of tle crop from two elquare rods to one-tenth to one-third of an acre, or larger it desired. The la...

FARMING ON BUSINESS LINES. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 30 April 1914

FARMING ON BUSINESS LINES. It is quite impossible in these days of keen competition, and with the high prices ruling for land, cattle, la. bor, and all commercinal commodities, to ignore the fact that if thg dairy farmer, is to make the most of his labors, he must be in the position of I knowing, with some degree of cer i tainty, just wsat branch of his busl ness is, from year to year, the most profitable. How can disaster be avert. ed it he goes on year after year utter ly ignorant, not only of how much he has made, or is making, from his dairy or other branches of his bust. ness, but what is far worse, often not possessing a knowledge as to whether hoe s making money or'losing it. That hundreds of farmers do not find them selves involved in serious financial difniculties is largely due to the pro. ductiveness of the land and a tribute to their own hard-working industry. If the commercial man, faced on all sides with keen competition, carried on his business In the haphazard way th...

FLOCK MANAGEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 30 April 1914

FLOCK MANAGEMENT. If strong, healthy and vigorous lambs are wanted, extra care must be given to the ewe flock from time of mating to time of lamblig. Durilg this tline the ewes shotld be steadily gatning in Ilesh. It is not desirable that the ewe flock after Inating should over have to become the scavengers of the farm; that business should be lett for store sheep. The ewe flock is too valuable for that work. for it is front this flock that the future feeding lamb is obtained. One often hears of heavy 'losses be ing experienced by sheep breeders through ewes being frightened by dogs and otilher causes, and this brings to mind reasons that ought to lie up pernlost in the minlds of all those who have charge of lambing ewes. Among them there is o1ne precaution that should orever be'absent, and tlht is this: That the ewe ilock should never be allowed to be rushed by the rhcp herd's dog, nor should it be hurried whell being driven, nor under any clr culnstances shoull it be given an oppo...

CROPS FOR FODDER. [Newspaper Article] — The Casterton News and the Merino and Sandford Record — 30 April 1914

CROPS FOR FODDER. The time seems opportune to di rect the attention of farmers to the necessity of planting fodder crops, and for their subsequent conservation as a provision for stock and feed dur irg the winter. The weather this season has been very dry, and in al most every district absence of rain has been severely felt. ,The llan who dloes not tale this wise precaution of providing winter feed will have a grin reallsation of his lack of forethought when he finds his dairy herd, andi other stock, languishing for the food which Nature withholds during hIer unpropitious seasons. - It is, however, quite within the pro vince of the farmer to conserve suoil. clent fodder for his stock to tide over the winter. There are so l:nny ex namples of the splendid results from silos that it is hard to conceive why tie practice of making sllage has not become more general throughout the State.

ARGENTINA'S WHEAT INDUSTRY. Argentina, inspite of poor market facilities and a backward farning po pulation, already ranks third among the three wheat-exporting countries of the world. Its area devoted to wheat cultivation has doubled during the past ten years, and Is three times as large as it was only fifteen years ago. There is every prospect, too, of a still greater advance In the near future. Owing to conditions of cli mate and soil. Argentina cannot, it would seem, enter Into serious conm petition with Canada in the produc tion of "strong" wheat. Barleta wheat, originally brought from Italy, forms about 70 per cent. of the crop. and Russian wheat 20 per cent., while the remaining 10 per cent would In clude varlos classnes of wheat, tome of which are grown specially for mak Ing macaronl.
