EXPERIMENTAL LAMBS. To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 4 December 1915
EXPERIMENTAL LAMBS. To the Editor of the Expresas. Sir,-I was much interested, in reading in the last issue of the "Ex press" the paragrgraph giving the ac count of the sales, by Messrs. L. A. Fairbairn & Co., for the Government: Research Farm, at Werribee, of the "experimental lambs," which test, I have no doubt, has been carried out with great care and forethought. Still, I think the account leaves much to be guessed at by those: for whose benefit the tests have been-. carried out. I. consider' it is nec essary to know the percentage of lambs raised from each different breed of rain ; also the percentage of lambs found fit for market on thel day the same were drafted for the sale; as it will be found that the numbers range from 19 by the rams, down to 12 by the Dorset Horn. If you can procure these par ticulars, and publish the same, you will doubtless enlighten a large num ber of lamb 'raisers.--And oblige, yours truly, JOHN DUGDALE. "Rosehill," 1st Dec., 1915.
