BETTER DISTRIBUTION OF MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 7 March 1924

BETTER DISTRIBUTION OF MILK. Realising the fearful waste that gdes on at the present time, through the overlapping of the distributing com panies, a deputation from the Country Milk Suppliers' Association recently waited on the Minister for Agrieul ture; with a view to devising a scheme for improving and cheapening the dis tribution of fresh milk. Mr. Knox, President of the Council, stated that tho existing system was wasteful and costly, and his association believed that if the larger companies could he merged into one, the result would be much better. Failing that, he suggested that an area in the city bo set apart to demonstrate the ad vantages of tho block system. The Minister, in reply, said the in terests of the .suburban dairymen must be considered. Ho believed that co operation would help to solve the diffi culty. Finally, it was agreed that the following companies should confer with him on the subject, namely, the Fresh Food and Ice Co., the Farmers and Dairymen's, the Camd...

A RETROGRADE STEP. [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 7 March 1924

A RETROGRADE STEP. The Mudgoo Agricultural Society, in. its anxiety to encourage pure-brod draught stock, has decided that all draught horses exhibited at the next show must have Stud Book pedigrees. This, in my opinion, as an old horse man, is a retrograde step, because many owners of first-class draught mares buy them at auction, and haven't the least idea of their breeding. To penalise theso men for not having a pedigree, seems to me wrong. In my own district, up to a few years ago, small men bred some of the staun ehest and most shapely draughts in the State; but it is. safp to say that none of them were in any Stud Book. I know the value of pedigree as well as anyone ; but where, as in draught horses,, there is but little register kept, their looks and work being their re ference, it seems a pity to debar such animals from exhibition, merely be cause, they are not in the Stud Book. Why. ijot amend tho rule, so that, other poinjb's .being equal, the Stud Book horse is tb have th...

FARM FACTORS (Conducted by ROBERT KALESKI) [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 7 March 1924

[?] ( Conducted by ROBERT KALESKI) Correspondence^ is invited. All questions on agriculture will ? be answered in these columns. Address: Mr. Robert Kaleski, 'Stock and Station Journal,' 17 Castlereagji'st, Sydney I Improving the Wheat Soil A few weeks ago, I asked a pro minent Wyalong wheat farmer % his opinion ' on my book, 'The Settler's Guide,' published before the war. His reply was, that he didn't like it, be cause in it I advocated ploughing deeply for wheat. I turned wp the passage in/question, and pointed out that I advocated shal I low ploughing at first, then an inch 1 H deeper every year, . as the soil sweet ened till the ideal (10 inches) was 1 reached. This, however, appeared to 1-6 beyond him ; his idea being appar- - entJy, that shallow ploughing was the : only thing possible. 1 So it is, of course, for the first few years, but a 'plough-pan' is soon created, air and light cannot penetrate B deeply, and the shallow depth being 1 worked soon peters out, leaving tho , ...

A DOG'S DUTY. [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 7 March 1924

A DOC'S DUTY. Word comes from Goulburn of a fine bit of work done by a sheep-dog, owned by Mr. A. Lamb, of Barralier. Dur ing mustering a mob of sheep got away, and broke into the rough bush country at the back, with the dog in pursuit. Sheep and dog were com pletely lost for four days, but finally the mob was found feeding quietly in a clearing, with the dog in charge. There woo r-i-k mnfAr t.i-A milnc nnrl flip temperature during the daytime was 100 degrees. This is the sort of thing our sheep dogs do all over Australia, and little or nothing is said about it. We take it as a matter of course, just as we did many of the superhuman things done by o'tir boys in the Big War. Austra lians are generally accused of talking too much aoout themselves; but, in jus tice to us, I must say tliat if the aver age Australian forgot his modesty, and boosted his country attd its products like Canada or the U.S.A., it would be much better for us financially.

A NEW IDEA IN MULCHING. [Newspaper Article] — Country Life Stock and Station Journal — 7 March 1924

A NEW IDEA IN MULCHING. What seems to be a good laborsav ing ^device for saving weeding and watering when growing valuable crops, suehu as pine-apples, sugar-cane, tob acco, strawberries, etc., comes from Hawaii, where it nas been in use for the past five years. So far, it is said to have proved a complete success there, hastening the growth and maturity of the crop considerably, and improving the yield up to 70 per cent. ii seemB to me well worth a trial here. Tho plan followed is to prepare the laud in the ordinary way, but leav ing it perfectly flat. A paper mulch is then rolled out, over the surface j holes are punched in it where tho seeds or plants are to go; and they are planted in these holes. A little dirt is plaoed on the edge of the paper to prevent it blowing about ; and alter a time, holes are punched in the paper between the rows, for watering. No weeding or cultivating is needed; and, in the case of straw berries, no straw. The paper can be procured from a local agent...
