COW FEEDING RATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton Advertiser — 26 January 1914

COW FEEDING RATIONS. An exchange of opinions upon the subject is common among dairy -farmers in America. One contributer's experience is:-"In compounding a ration. a. number of things should be taken into con sideration other than the nutritive ratio of the ration. We consider a combination of lucerne bay and maize ensilage one of the best for dairy cows, but it does not fulfil the requirements in every case. Many herds that receive no grain in connection with this com bination have made good -records. Qftentimes it is more economical to use the feeds alone, but some grain must be used to geta maxi mum production. Cows giving a good flow of milk will use a little grain in addition to the ensilage and lucerne very profitably. "A combination of lucerne, hay and maize ensilage may be supple mented very satisfactorily with a grain mixture of 300 lb, cruehed maize, 300 lb. crushed oats and 200 lb. distillers' dried grains. This ration is a little narrower than necessary, but with the luc...

LAST NIGHT'S STORM. VERY LITTLE DAMAGE DONE. CHURCH SERVICE IN DARKNESS The storm that burst over Sheppar ton last evening is not known to have done much damage in the town, beyond knccking down a few fences, such as a portion in Nixon-street, between Maude and Orr-streets; but the rain pelted; came down in torrents; then eased off to a rattle, while the lightning flashed and the thunder. carried on desultory cannonading. The streets were speedily cleared of people; but St Augustine's Church of England, Maudesltreet, was, without the faintest warning, suddenly thrown into darkness about 8.10 p.m. A sheet of iron roofing became de tached from the verandah of the Union hotel, and falling upon the electric wires, cut two of them, with the result that all the electric lights on the opposite side of Fryers-street, including those at James Fairleys', were extinguished, In the Church of England prayers were being said at the time when the electric lights went out and the electric fans ceas...
