GLENELG DISTRICT. Casterton. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 24 January 1914
C.LENELCG DISTRICT. - . (FpOM OUR COPRRSPONDEN'P.. Casterton. The weanther is now about perfect for outdoor work. Yields are well up to the ear?-y estimates. The bats are turning 6ut a very fine sample. A few ciltivators talk of following the e.xample of some who have proved it more profitable to feed their hay and grain to stock than to sell it at present- market rates. Some of the dairy farmers hoave long since realised that good milk yields cannot be: obtaihed from a cow half starved duriig the calf bearing period and in poor condition at calving, -and the present abundance of fodder that is salable only at a low Iigure seems to have quick ened others to recognition .of the fact that there is better prospect of getting a bet ter return for fodder by lieeping their milk herd in good condition or fattening other stock. The potato crops in any kind of soil 'that. 'holds the moisture fairly well, and especially in the r&ver flats, are looking well, and there seems to be now r...

CENTRAL GIPPSLAND. Trafalgar. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 24 January 1914
CENTRAL CIPPSLAND. [FROM OUlt CORRESPONDENT.] Trafalgar. A welcome rainfall has had beneficial re sults to crops and grass. In the towns many of the water tanks had given out,' but they are. all replenished now, and the surrounding country already presents a greatly changed appearance. The tuccess of the. potato crops is now assured. The amount of cream received at the Trafalgar Butter Factory is somewhat below this time last year. Dairy farmers say it .is re markable the way-grass has dried up this summer. Stacking is now practically finished, but at-Suniny Creek and Yarragon a good deal of the crop is still in the pad docks. The effects of good work carried out by the rabbit inspectors can be seen in all.directions. Gippsland has been almost entirely free this sumlmer from pests. which usually do a lot of damage--rasshoppers, bush fires and caterpillars. Cattle are in good demand at satisfactory prices.

Noboly knew whit seize of majoritjr woulld satisfy their opponents, who said that a majority favored I-orne Rule, and that Ulster was to be crushed. But if .Ulster was right, why should she be crushed by the odd men at' an" election? It was not true that-a kingle' PIrotetant wvould be thrust out of the Im'perial conetitution; the statement was a mere bogey.

SOUTH WESTERN DISTRICT. Port Fairy. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 24 January 1914
SOUTH WESTERN DISTRICT. [FROM OUR CORREDPONDENT.] Port Fairy. Thrashing -operations are now in full swing. In some parts the.yields are good, but taking the district as a whole, the aver age is not up to last year. The price of fering for barley (3/ per bushel for best malting) is not a .very payable one to the farmer when all expenses are paid, and it is a most, risky crop to grow. - The quan tity of malting barley for sale in this dis trict will be much below that of last year, but the shortage does not seem to have in creased the price, and many farmers will hold their barley- in the hope of getting a more payable figire. The market for oats is. even worse than fbarley, the best quotation being 1/6 to 1/8 per bushel, at which figure farmers who are paying high rents for their land would not be able to pay expenses. The. potato' crops on the whole are- very good, and it is estimated that 30,000 bags of potatoes have left the Warrnambool district during -the past fort night for Mel...
