Air-Craft In the Great War. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 29 October 1914

Air-Craft In the Oreat War. The enormous growth in the size of armies, the immensely greater range of modern guns, the increased mobil ity of troops and transport*, and the impiovementa in methods of entrench ing and taking cover—these are the main features that make the flying machine absolutely indiapensible in the battlefield to-day. When the .Japanese invested Port Arthur, their field telegraph service was wonderful, and their reconnaisanee work was be yond praise, but to-day these methods would bo hopelessly out of date. An aeroplane on cither side, indeed, would have turned tin* scale for the Rus sians or the Japanese months earlier. But to-day the flying machine comes into its own, and is being tested to its uttermost. What Has Been Done ? The reports that have come to hand of such trials us have already taken place are, to say the least, sketchy— picturesque rather than accurate, and and, in general, based upon the evi dence of "wounded officers" rather than on that of exper...

LUCERNE AND MAIZE IN PORK PRODUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 5 November 1914

LUCERNE AND MAIZE IN PORK PRODUCTION. l.uccrne uiiti maize arc a splendid combination for cheapening' the produc tion of pork. At Orbost, in Kastern Ciippsland, Victoria, large numbers of pigs are fattened in this manner. They arc run out on the lucerne stands and topped off on maize and pumpkins, j They are seldom if ever shut up .to fatten. The usual method is to throw the maize cobs out to them, and they will do the threshing. VmnpkiuH, bu gar boet, ur mangels niako an excel lent addition to the grain. When they are used its consumption is lessened. Snowy Hivcr farmers estimate that the j equivalent of two bags of shelled maize j will, together with the lucerne, suflice j to fatten a pig. When fed conjointly with one or more of the other foddoru ' slightly less will bo required. In the United States of America the value of lucerne for fattening pigs is becoming generally recognised. There the ani mals aro ringed to provent rooting the ground up. Thoy harvest thoir own feed, and f...

MILK AND SILAGE. AN INTERESTING EXPERIMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 5 November 1914

MILK AND SILAGE. AN INTERESTING EXPERIMENT. A farmer in England some time ago made the following experiment:—He liud a twenty-six acre paddock of Eng lish ryo grass, one-half of which he made into hay, the other into silage, Twenty cows in full milk were then taken, and to ten he fed as much hay aa they would cat. The other ten got as much of tho silage as they wanted. The experiment was carried out for some months, and the silage was found to last quite three times as long as tho .hay. During the time of tho experi ment the silage-fed cattle gave much more milk, and kept up the quality hotter than those fed 011 hay. Outside persons wore asked to compare the con ditions of the cattle, ami they all gave it in favour of the silage-fed. They were in better condition and their skin softer than the hay-fed animals. The result, therefore, was that the silage fed beasts gave more milk, were in bet ter condition, and were fed three times as long from thirteen acres of land aB those that wer...

CONCRETE ON THE FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 5 November 1914

CONCRETE ON THE FARM. Concrete is" the coming material for a continually increasing number of fafin uses. To-day it is being successfully used on the dairy and other farms in the place of timber in the censtruction of lloors, troughs, gutters, tanks, ditches, dams, paths or building blocks, so th.it tho following authoritative directions may be found useful. The ingredients for making concrete ave cement, sand and water. Nothing but the bi'st cement should be used, and it is best in a line, powdery condition, con taining no lumps, Cement should bo stored in a dry placc, as dampness is an injury. The sand used should be clean, sharp and not too fine, Jt should be frco from loam or clay, as these will tend to destrt'7 tho adhesive quality and to re tard iho sotting of the cement. Clay mixed with the sand may bo removed by washing. By sharp sand is meant that the edges of the grains must be sharp and not round or worn off as is often the case with sand found in the bed of a stream. Coa...

HINTS ON REARING CALVES. (By a Practical Australian Farmer). [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 5 November 1914

I'lHTS ON REARING CALVES. (Hv ;i Practical Australian Farmer). In order to eecurc strong, healthy calves it is essential that the cow be well .tared for previous to giving birth. Sho should be well fed duriug her milk ing period, and should have a rest of from fix to eight weeks prior to calv ing. If the eon- is milked too close up t(i the time of calving the calf will be deprived of its full supply of nutri ment, and the cow's milk yield during '.ho following lactation period will be greatly reducod. Dry rows should not be turned into poor rountry, but should be kopt in youd working condition. If good pas lines sue not available, dry coirs should he supplied with food of a laxative i-hariictor, such as bran, lucerne, greens! nil' or ensilage. Cows about to i-alve should be kept in close, handy paddocks; and if much inilk is made previous to calving the udder should lie cased, but not milked dry. Allow the calf to remain with the cow for one day after birth, so that the cow may clea...

FEEDING FARM ANIMALS. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 5 November 1914

FEEDING FARM ANIMALS. For beef, milk, mutton, pork, and bacon production, one must feed an additional quantity of food. We may call this the "manufacturing diet," and as such it must be regarded as an essential addition to the "mainten ance diet" for any animal that is uti lised in the production of the com modities mentioned abore. So com plex is the utilisation of food in the animal body that it becomes impossible to lay down any hard and fast rules for determining the "manufacturing diet." The best way is to make an indi vidual study of each animal. If one cow yields normally, say, 800 gallons of milk p.er annum, it wiil most likely require more additional food than one yielding normally only 500 gallons. But there are exceptions; hence the need for studying the individuality of cows. Feed according to the milk yield and the digestive capacity—that is the bost rule to go by. In the case of fattening stock, it is perhaps easier to determine a suitable ration Careful records should...

ROOTING DEPTHS OF PLANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 5 November 1914

ROOTING DEPTHS OF PLANTS. A study of the growth and develop ment of the roots of plants is of prac tical interest. Certain systems of planting and cultivation have been practised because experience has shown tliem to be the best, often without the reason being known. Study of the soil and of the roots of plants throws light upon some of the difficult problems of crop production, and leads to better farming. Wheat aurl oats do not spread out their roots so far horizontally as do the roots of most other cultivated crops, but penetrate deeper into the soil. Grass is a soil maker and a soil pro tector. No other crop equals the per ennial grasses in producing such an im mense growth of roots in the upper lay er of the soil, and the roots of some varieties of grass also penetrate deep, being exceeded in this respect only by one other ilass ef crop, the perennial legumes. Lucerne is the deepest rooting plant of the cultivated crops. It makes only a small fibrous growth of roots in the uppe...
