PEE-COOLING FRUIT. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 June 1915

PEE-COOLING FRUIT. One of the burning questions of the day on the Mildura Settlement is that of en suring that fresh fruit sent to the Mel bourne market will arrive in first-class condition. The distance from Mildura to Melbourne is approximately the same as that from the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Areas to Sydney. Moreover, climatic conditions are also very similar, and the same classes of fruit are grown in both centres, consequently the solution of the problem in Mildura is bound to have a very important bearing on the decision which will be arrived at in regard to the same question as far as settlers at Leeton and Mirrool are concerned. In a recent issue of the "Mildura Culti vator" there is a long report of the meet ing of a committee consisting of settlers and representatives- of the Agricultural Department, Railway Department and other interested bodies. The consensus of opinion, as reported, is strongly in favor of the pre-cooling of fruit, that is to say, the provision of faci...

The Feeding of Farm Horses. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 June 1915

The Feeding of Farm Horses. BY H. R. ALEXANDER. Of late complaints have been numerous from settlers on various parts of the Areas as to digestive troubles experienced with their horses. In almost every in stance brought under notice, the trouble really lies with the settler. Some men seem to think that a horse can work and keep on working on a diet that will not furnish the animal with sufficient nutri ment to maintain its body warmth and give energy for work. Horses doing heavy farm work must be fed if the farmer expects to get anything like reasonable results from his team. An ideal food for a horse is oaten or wheaten chaff with oats and some crushed maize added. With wheaten chaff it is not considered an advantage if the chaff shows much evi dence of shelled grains of wheat-an ex-, cess of wheat grains frequently causes trouble. Wheaten hay. to make good chaff must be cut on the greten side. As the weather becomes colder an extra allowance of crushed maize can be sub stituted fo...

SCHOOLS OF THE AREAS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 June 1915

SCHOOLS OF THE AREAS. Empire Day Celebrations.-At all the schools on the Areas, Empire Day was commemorated by the holding of func tions inspired by the spirit of patriotism, expressive of loyalty to our King and country, and of sympathy towards our brave Allies. At Fine Bough Public School the proceedings terminated with a picnic and social, largely attended by the residents. At Yanco Public School a similar programme was carried out, while at Leeton the school combined with the Citizens' Empire Day Celebrations Commit tee in carrying out a patriotic procession through the town, followed by a day's sports on McCaughey Park. The chil dren's display in the procession consisted of an allegorical representation of Britain and her Allies surrounding and protecting little Belgium. The characters, which were well and tastefully costumed, were ably portrayed by the following pupils:-Britannia, Miss Irene Williams; France, Miss Doris Daly.; Russia, Miss Ella Tiff en; Australia, Miss Rita Co...

Vegetables. WHAT TO PLANT AND WHEN. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 June 1915

Vegetables. WHAT TO PLANT AND WHEN. As the result of his year's experience on the vegetable experiment plot, Mr. Hog bin, the Officer in Charge, has formed a calendar, to which he is himself working. The calendar will be referred to month by month, in future issues of the "Irriga tion Record," and notes given on the sow ings for each particular month, but in the meantime it is thought that settlers will be interested in seeing the calendar as a whole, so that if they desire to follow the lines laid down, they will be able to do so some distance in advance. CALENDAR. January.-Peas, French Beans, Carrots, Swedes, Cabbage, Turnips, Cauliflower, Lettuce, Potatoes, Radishes. February.-Parsnips, Carrots, Turnips, Cabbage, Lettuce, Peas, Beetroot, Po tatoes.

A POULTRY HATCHERY. Is There Room for One on the Irrigation Areas? [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 June 1915

A POULTRY HATCHER?. Is There Room for One on the Irrigation Areas? Some time ago, before his death, the late Commissioner looked into the ques tion of the establishment of a hatchery for poultry onirhe Irrigation Areas. The matter was brought under notice in the first instance by Mr. James Hadlington, the Poultry Expert to the Department of Agriculture, who, after a visit to the Areas, reported that he had been much impressed with the necessity for a central hatchery, where settlers . could obtain chickens or have their eggs hatched. He pointed out that White Leghorns were the most popular fowl on the Irrigation Areas, and that consequently settlers had few breeding hens until late in the season. At the same time, they were not operating in a sufficiently large way to warrant the employment of incubators, nor were many of them in a position to purchase such machines. Mr.. Hadlington considered that settlers should have their chickens out before the 1st October to obtain the best res...

PIGS SUFFERING FROM LICE. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 June 1915

PIGS SUFFERING FROM LICE. By H. R. Alexander. Several cases of badly lice-infected pigs have been brought under notice of the Land Settlement Board. Any man who has handled stock to any extent will have noted that animals, not too well. nourish ed and showing signs of emaciation, fre quently give evidence of louse infection. It seems that animals weakened and anae inic are the natural prey of ;«]?is class of parasite. It does not always "follow that a sound, healthy animal does not carry lice, but the sound, strong, well fed ani mal is usually so vigorous that the effects of the parasite are less noticeable. On the Areas it should be interesting to pig raisers to know that pigs run on local . dairy farms where a liberal supply of skim milk is available show no sign of lice infection. The biggest sufferers noted have been pigs which, judging by appear ances have not been too liberally fed. When lice are present on the pigs and in the pig styes and surrounding yards, they are a most o...

The City Plan of Griffith. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 June 1915

The City Plan of Griffith. BY WALTER BURLE7 GRIFFIN (Designer of Federal Capital). General.-Griffith, so named in honor of the late N.S.W. Minister for Public Works, is designed to be the capital of the great Murrumbidgee Irrigation Dis trict in the southern part of the State. Though as yet only existent in the form of preliminary construction work, it is established for the time as the terminus of a main line of railway that is being by degrees extended westward into the interior of the State and the continent. The Site.-Forty miles west-north-west of Leeton, the site occupies gently rising land, including some slightly marked off shoots from the western end of the south ern convex base of a crescent-shaped, sharply-defined ridge known as the Mac pherson Range, rising here to 250ft. above the level of the Australian plateau which from this side stretches almost flat indefinitely into the distances. Situated in a central position on the main irrigation canal, 91 miles from the Mur r...

Wind Breaks. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 June 1915

Wind Breaks. The conditions which have ruled during the recent summer have convinced many of the late Commissioner's wisdom in hav ing inserted in the conditions of lease the clause making it mandatory on settlers to plant wind-break trees. Up to the present time it has been thought that a certain amount of hardship would have been involved in strictly enforcing this condition, seeing that the great majority of settlers had an enormous amount of work to do in developing their blocks work which at first sight might have ap^ peared to them to be more important than the planting of wind-break trees. With the experience of the weather con ditions which have now been gained, how ever, it is felt that the time has arrived when the condition of the lease relating to this matter should be more strictly en forced than it has been hitherto. This will ensure not only the protection of set tlers' own interests, but the permanent benefit of the whole settlement. . Planting Must b© Done.-Notice i...

RAINFALL RECORDS. A comparison of rainfall for the years 1913-14 and 1914-15 was published in the "Record" of May 18. In addition to this, we publish hereunder a rainfall average made up from the records available cover ing the years 1891 to 1914, viz.: Points. 1914. January 13S 4 February (minimum) 83 42 March 153 205 April 120 72 May 129 105 J.une (maximum) .. 215 43 July .. .. 172 36 August 145 10 September 145 24 October 145 4 November 118 56 December 100 112 Total 16.63 7.13 1915. January - 25 February - 43 March - 19 April - 60 From May 1, 1914, to April 30, 1915, the rainfall was 5.37 points. A perusal of this monthly average points to the fact that the month of June ap pears to be a month in which it is usual to experience the heaviest rainfall in this particular district. February is the month credited with the lowest average amount of rainfall. The figures given should be useful, and will help as a slight guide to settlers in anticipating rainfalls.
