Making Irrigation Farming Pay. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 July 1913

Making Irrigation Farming Pay. FROM the Water Supply Commission of Victoria, Ave have received a pamphlet, containing' advice to settlers in the irriga tion districts of Victoria. The experiences of some of the settlers in that State should be pf value to us here. The advice given is also useful, based as it is on the actual results achieved. The returns from the smaller irrigable farms of 10 acres, and up to 50 acres, are an evidence of what can be done by intelligent settlers com mencing* with .a comparatively small capital. The expenditure and receipts from a 10-acre block are thus given by the Commission. * * * "The settler came on the 10-acre .farm just two years ago. The land at the- time was new, unfenced, entirely uncleared, and unimproved. He had never had experience in farming before he came on this block, but had kept a small kitchen garden for home supply. His entire capital was about £300. Has cleared' the whole place, and the improvements made by him are-a house, poult...

Grazing Lucerne. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 July 1913

Grazing Lucerne. An interesting' experiment was recently made at the Moumahaki Experiment Farm, New Zealand, to determine the best means of grazing an established lucerne-field-by both cattle and sheep. The lucerne crop was two and a quarter years old, and the plant was then (ac cording to the Journal of Agriculture) thoroughly well established. * * .. . After the first cutting of the season five hundred and twenty-five sheep (ewes and lambs) were turned in on seven acres. At this time the lucerne was eighteen inches high, rather high for feeding off, the wet weather having made it necessary to postpone the stocking. The sheep, not being accustomed to the rich feeding, were not continuously kept on the lucerne for the first few days. They were taken off after two hours7 feeding the first day; on the second day they had four hours' grazing, and on the third day they were allowed to remain in the field. The sheep rapidly improved in -condition, and on the. tenth day, the lucerne being...

Eulogy of the Cow. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 July 1913

Eulogy of the Cow. THE COW comes in -for frequent eulogy, but there coulcl not be a more en thusiastic exponent of her many virtues than Col. F. W. Woods, a well-known Nebraska auctioneer. At a cattle sale, the Colonel let himself go thus: u Grand and noble brute, of all man's animal friends she is the .greatest! To her we owe the most. Examine all the channels of trade into which she enters and note the result should she be blotted out. A Sunday stillness w6uld pervade the great stock yards of our large cities and grass would grow in the streets. One-half the freight trains that plough the continent from ocean to ocean would side-track, for there would be nothing for them to do. Fifty per cent, of the employees would draw no pay on Saturday night, and our tables would be bare of the greatest luxuries with which they are now loaded. The great plains of the west that the cow has made to blossom like the rose would revert to the Indians from whence they came, and millions of prosperou...

Nature's Process. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 July 1913

Nature's Process. NATURE'S process in bringing water from the deeper soils to the plant roots in the seed bed should be studied by the agri culturist. The process is known as cap illarity. When it is understood that the soil must be properly cultivated to per mit of the desired capillary action or else plants cannot do their best, the tiller of the soil will realise that cultivation is the first and last word in his business. Dr. Taylor, of the Deere Coy., puts the case very plainly in his notes on the subject. "Water passes upward, .going from soil particle to soil particle, and enveloping each with a film of moisture until the surface is reached. There it is consumed by plants or lost by evaporation." * * * Capillarity is perfect when the soil is compact and at the same time thoroughly pulverised. The process is materially retarded if the soil is lumpy, because of the large air spaces, or when the con tact is not compact between the bottom of the furrow and the furrow slice, be ca...

Tobacco Growing. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 July 1913

Tobacco Growing, THE Minister for Agriculture, Mr. Trefle, made a -statement last week in regard to the tobacco-growing experiments on the Yanco Irrigation areas. Mr, Trefle ex plains that special arrangements were made with a tobacco expert, Mr. Albert Gornitzka, to settle upon the Yanco area, and, in return for special land conces sions granted him in connection with his farm, he was to devote himself to the growth of tobacco in certain quantities annually. He was also to -supply to bacco, sold at a fixed maximum price, to settlers on the area, and instruct them in. the methods of producing tobacco leaf. Further, Mr. Gornitzka was to be available for certain purposes, if re quired by the Agricultural Department, to, visit other districts in - the State, and to impart such information. to tobacco growers as tlie Minister might require. Mr. Trefle said he was ple'ased to an nounce that, so far, the experiment has been a most pronounced ' success. Com munications have been received f...

Mildura-Merbein. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 August 1913

Mildura-Merbein. BY "STEELE BLAYDE." THE present writer, who, for some time, has been connected with the Mildura Cultivator, has been invited to contri bute, such notes to the Be&ord as he may think will be of interest or value to the settlers in the N.S.W. irrigation areas. In starting* out ihe will be very glad if his readers will take him as the rough and ready observer he is, rather than as an authority on horticultural or agricul tural matters. He will write, in the free and easy style he adopted many years ago in writing as a very plain man for plain men, and there you are-introductions are over. Most Yanconians will have some know ledge, or at least idea, of Mildura.

Dairying Results. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 August 1913

Dairying Results. THE first results attained by the newly formed Yanco Cow Testing Association bears out to a large extent all that has been said and written regarding dairying being a highly payable industry on these irrigation areas when conducted on o proper lines. The Waterville Demonstration Dairy Farm established by Messrs. O'Callaghan and Sheehan, Leeton, gives an example of what good cows are capable of under actual test. These settlers have only made a start in dairying here during the past few months. They have 19 cows in the herd, 17 of which are heifers with their first calf. They have been tested twice during the past month, and despite the cold weather which usually prevails at this time of the year, the herd is yielding 39libs of milk, equal to 22 091bs of butter per day. This at the present price of butter gives a cash return of <£1 13s. 3d. per cow per month, besides skim milk for calves and pigs * The following table gives the average yield per day of th...
