POULTRY ON THE FARM. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 16 May 1906

;|— POULTRY ON THE FARM. Double-Mating.— Last week we alluded to the double-mating system which breed ers of eminence in almost all varieties now follow. This, of course, is only done when it is desired to produce exhibition specimens. Perhaps the reader may feel inclined to ask what that may have to do with the heading . of this column. The answer is that although the essential point in 'Poultry For Profit' is egg production, while admitting that many show snecimens nrp. snrilv rififirient in H that particular, yet there is abundant evi |g dence to prove that high egg-production U and high quality may be co-existent. It U is only when every other consideration x is sacrificed to the cultivation of show m points — large beefy combs in the case of M Leghorns, and feather lacing as in that of ? VVyandottes — only then it is that show I birds become good things for the utility H poultryman to steer clear of. I .-..*? ?£.. * ? We have already stated that everyone M feels a proper pride ...

VEGETABLES AS FIELD CROPS OR FOR KITCHEN GARDEN Seasonable Work for May. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 16 May 1906

I VEGETABLES [ AS FIELD CROPS OR & FOR KITCHEN GARDEN Seasonable Work for May. The early part of the present month should see a general clearing- up. Old growths and spent crops which cumber the ground should be removed, as the first step towards the preparation of the soil for succeeding- ones. When these have been taken away, an idea which finds many advocates might well be given a trial. It consists of sprinkling the beds with common salt, the .primary object of which is to destroy the slugs, which work such havoc upon young, plants. In ad dition to this, However, tne salt acts as a fertilizer, particularly valuable to cab bages, turnips, and others of the Bras sica. After sprinkling, the surface should not be disturbed for a few days. Then, if manure is to be turned in at the time of digging that operation secures the in corporation of the salt with the soil. A full crop should now be sown of the, fol lowing : — Peas, broad beans, radish, cab bage, and leek. In an earlie...

THE HORSEMAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 16 May 1906

-—THE HORSEMAN.— 55—5S By- 'CHILDE HAROLD.' Mudgee is following in the train of Sydney, Bathurst, Dubbo, Newcastle, and Orange, and is about to form a trotting track, which will allow of horses in har ness showing off their paces to the best advantage. In all the districts named the trotting-bred horse is fast becoming a favourite with the farmer and settler, who is only now finding out what has been so long known in America, that he is the best all-round horse that can be bred. * * * Trotting-bred stock made the biggest showing at the recent Sydney Show, and this writer is pleased to state that coun try buyers bought largely. The two horses which were drawn attention to in the last issue of this journal as animals of great bone and substance, Almont Pilot and Cashier, changed hands, Al mont Pilot going to the Dubbo district and Cashier into the hands of that astute judge of the trotting horse, Mr. Harry Knight, the price being 150 guineas. The price paid for Almont Pilot was not st...

SYDNEY WOOL MARKET. DALCETY & CO., LTD. 15th May, 1006. There is still a temporary shortage of supplies of wool available for sale by pri vate treaty, a not unusual state of things at this time of the year. Consignments, however, are arriving freely for the next Sydney auctions, to be held on the 21st and 22nd inst., when- in all probability 6500 bales will be catalogued, of which we expect to submit about 4000 bales, com prised largely of Central Queensland new clip wools. The facilities offered by the Sydney market for the realisation of early shorn wools have in the past induced own ers to meet the market as speedily as possible, and this season the disposition is equally as keen ; for there is the ad ditional inducement to sell on account of the high values ruling for all descriptions of the staple. At the present time super 60' s tops are quoted on the Bradford market at 28}d. per lb., a price that is only 4d. per lb. below the highest point of the boom year. Under the ...
