ANIMALS THAT KNOW WHAT THEY NEED. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 8 January 1915

ANIMALS THAT KNOW WHAT THEY NEED. The instinct which animals possess generally serves their purpose just as well as the reasoning faculty in uman. Especially is this so when the animals become afflicted, for they frequently, and with unerring instinct, prescriba for themselves, searching- out that par ticular herb or plant or ?iad of. soil which will quickly make them well. We have been told how the mongoose cures himself, when bitten by a cobra, by eating a certain plant, and many of us have seen a sick dog bury himself in the dirt, thereby to overcome some af fection. Animals get rid of their para sites by using dust, mud, clay, etc. Those suffering from - fever, restrict their diet, keep quiet, seek darkness, and airy places, drink water, and some times even plunge into it. When a dog has lost its appetite he eats that spe cies of grass known as dog-grass. Cats also eat grass, catnip, etc., when they feel the need of a tonic. Sheep and cows, when ill, seek out certain herbs. An a...

DROUGHT-RESISTING FORAGE CROPS. SUITABLE FOR STACK ENSILAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 8 January 1915

DROUGHT-RESISTING FORAGE CROPS. SUITABLE FOR STACK ENSILAGE. As the dry weather is fairly univer sal, and miany spring-sown fodder crops are either a total or partial failure, a brief description of some of our leading drought-resisting fodder crops suitable for making into ensilage later on in the autumn will not be out of place. First of all comes maize, and there are now so many good varieties for fod der purposes that it is sometimes diffi cult to choose. Longfellow and Red Hogan have proved good fodder maizes. IIickory King is a largo white maize, and throws several stalks from each seed. It stools well in fact, and there fore is economical in the seedling. There is an Australian variety-the Craig Mitchell, which yields enormous crops of fodder. It has yielded up to over 50 tons of fodder to the acre, and stools well. The seed is, however, ex pensive as yet-about 10/- per bushel. But, speaking generally, any variety that has proved itself in a district should be chosen for pref...

MANURIAL REQUIREMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 8 January 1915

MANURIAL REQUIREMENTS; Experiments devised with a view to ascertaining the essential minimum amount of available phosphoric acid potash required to produce maximum growth were made at the New York Agricultural Station. The crops used included barley, peas, tomatoes, tobacco, buckwheat, rape, and turnips. The conditions of temperature and moisture were under control and were, as far as possible, regulated so as to fully satisfy the requirements of the plants throughout the experiments. The results obtained show, writes W. N. Jordan, considerable uniformity amongst the different crops, no fixed relation exists between the production of dry matter and the amounts of phos phorous and potash utilised. Up to a somewhat indefinite point the produc tion of plant substance increased, but beyond that point increase in the con sumption of both phosphorous and pot assium compounds only resulted in an increase in the proportion of phosphor ous and potassium in the plant tissues, and not to a cor...
