WINTER CARE. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 1 May 1914

WINTER CARE. The season is at hand that is the hardest on our ever faithful friend the horse. The raw, damp, windy or extreme cold -weather, together with a little neglect, may cause the loss of a valu able horse. When a horse comes in wet from work or drive, rul> him well and cover with a warm woollen blanket. Always change to a dry blanket when the horse has cooled. Rub the legs well with a wisp of straw or a towel. Every horse Is more or less warm when he comes in from a drive. Never strip off the harness or saddle and k*t the horse rush into a feed of oats or a trough of water. Never give water or oats to a horse until he has been in the stable some time, and has had some hay. This is a sane and safe practice ami much loss can be avoided by en forcing it. Change the bit of the horse with the sensitive mouth. Take off the cheek, or let it out. Try a large rub ber-covered bit. If the horse "drives on one line." look to bis teeth at once; a sharp tooth is usually the cause.

AUSTRALIAN DAIRYING. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 1 May 1914

AUSTRALIAN DAIRYING. I Within the past ten years the dairy cows of Australia have increased from one million to above two millions. The | butter produced in a single year reach ed about 200,000,000 lbs. The annual export is valued at between £:>,000,000 mid £4,000,000. No rural industry in Australia is more progressive and none pays larger returns to the farmers. The mainstay of dairying is the export market, and easily the largest con sumers of Australian butter abroad are the people of the United Kingdom. It might be thought that the expense of carrying butter from Australia to London would be a serious handicap upon butter-making in the Common wealth. As a matter, of fact, however, the Australian dairy farmer, in point of cost, is as close to London as the dairy farmers of Ireland or Scotland. The actual contract price of shipping butter from either Melbourne or Syd ney to London Is '.;.d. per lb.

DAIRYING. CULLING OUT POOR COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Standard and Alberton Shire Representative — 1 May 1914

DAIRYING. CULLING OUT POOR COWS. An English dairying authority says: The elimination or the worthless ani mals should be one of the chief ob jects of the cow keeper. Milk records kept carefully and sys teniiitically furnish reliable informa tion which enables a cow keeper to de tect these worthless animals; and it pays him to dispose of them at once. There are some farmers, of course, who may be tempted to rely wholly on their own judgment as far as the milking capacities of any cow is con cerned; but guess-work o£ this kind can teach nothing what it costs to feed cows, nor whether such food is being economically fed 'in relation to the average quantity of milk produced. 5111k producers need to study this question of cost of food in relation to milk yield very carefully indeed. The fact is clear that a cow giving, say, S00 • gallons per annum costs practic J ally no more to feed than one which | only gives COO gallons; yet, compara tively speaking, there is a loss of .£G on the latt...

Till! issue of notices by the 'Albert011 Shire Council, sotting forth the liability of a section of Yavram property owners to payment of sums ranging from a modest "fiver" to .£57, according to frontage, has come like a.bolt from the blue. When tho forming of Com mercial-lane was undertaken by tho council there was mention of saddling abutting property-owners with part, if not all, the cost. What the cost was likely to be was not inquired into, nor were those concerned notilied.1 The work svns urgent. Last year some im provement was effected. A concrete drain on one side is meant to carry oft surplus water, while tho formation is a vast improvement on the quagmire that used to exist. iUit the work, es timated to cost .£28 a chain, is not liuished yet.

The Fire Bell. HAY DESTROYED. At a quarter past on Saturday afternoon the lire boll created a stir in tlie town. People rushed into the main street, anticipating an outbreak near at hand. A volume of smoke in dicated that a fire had occurred at -Mi'. Fred. Warren's place, about a . mile south from the - town. A number of people hurried thither by various means, to find that a large shed of hay, con taining about 150 tons, was on lire. Tho first on the scene assisted to re move the engine and chaff-cutter to a place of safety. The rest had to go, for the tire had a firm hold.
