A LIVELY WHEAT MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 23 May 1906
A LIVELY WHEAT MARKET. A wire from Albury says : — Owing to the increase i/n the price of wheat, special trains are running night and day, to shift grain recently sold. The wheat mar ket is just now in a peculiar position, the price being above by some pence the value for export. Shippers who bought largely for the London market are now selling at a profit to Sydney millers. As this con dition may not last long, farmers consider that they will do well to unload.

LOEL, M.M.C.V.S. ?~~-=~~~1S«=s£s:^;[ NEMO writes us from Euabalong as follows: — 'Could you tell me the name of the disease in cows mostly affecting milkers, and the cure, if any ? Symptoms of disease : Lameness in hind-quarters in the stifle and hip-joints ; afterwards swel lings appear in the fetlocks, first in hind feet and then all four feet become af fected. The animals lose their appe tites, and gradually lose condition. The complaint appears contagious. One cow has died from the effects, and when opened all organs appeared healthy. They linger on for six weeks aner contrauiinjf wie uuiujjicum. The only complaint we know of with symptoms resembling the above is rheumatoid arthritis' (rheumatism of the joints), and this mostly affects very young or very old animals, but should not be fatal in the time you mention.

THE "TOWN AND COUNTRY JOURNAL" EGG-LAYING COMPETITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 23 May 1906
THE 'TOWN AND COUNTRY JOURNAL' EGG-LAYING COMPETITION. The craze for egg-laying competitions appears to have caught on. The' Daily Telegraph' claims to be 'running' one. at the Hawkesbury Agricultural Col lege, and it is certainly made attractive by the donation of -£100 prize money. The ' Sydney Mail ' has provided the prizes for another at Rockdale ; while 'a third one is being conducted entirely under the auspices of the ' Town and country journal,' at the residence 01 Mr. A. E. Henry, ' Glenryde,' Ryde. Mr. Henry has been a successful breeder and exhibitor for some years of the Wy andotte fowl — has, in fact, made the keeping of high-class poultry pay, and the results attained by him should be watched with considerable interest. Some 69 pens are under his care, and, al though his report for April is far behind the liumber of eggs secured in other competitions, big results may be expect ed later on. What we like about the ' Town and Country Journal ' competi tion for April is the...
POULTRY ON THE FARM. DEMAND FOR EGG-PRODUCERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 23 May 1906
f- pouTtSTon the farm. — el ' DEMAND FOR EGG-PRODUCERS. The laying- competitions have, no doubt, done much to advertise the prominence in poultry matters of the Mother State. In addition to the 'locally-made' laying strains of the better known breeds, enter prising- fanciers have gone to America for Rosecomb Leg-horns, Rhode Island Reds, and Sing-le-comb White Leg-horns. These have all. in the land of their oric-in. a great name as egg-producers, and their addition to our already excellent stock must still further enhance, the reputation of N.S.W. poultry. Concerning- the now famous Rosecomb Leg-horns, a decided I improvement in their quality is now ap parent. The first importations from America, although laying remarkably I well, were diminutive, fine-boned speci I mens, lacking type and evenness, while r some of their combs were open in the 1 'work,' as the character of a rosecomb is ? termed, and that organ in some instances I manifested a falling, or pendulous tend ency. Now, ho...

DEHORNING CALVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 23 May 1906
DEHORNING CALVES. This is a subject that has been much discussed from time to time, but there can be only one conclusion arrived at, and that is of the benefit not only to *he cattle but to the owner. ♦ * * There have been several successful pro secutions for cruelty to animals against owners who have operated on mature stock with instruments devised for remov ing the horns, but none against those who have operated on calves by the method I am about to describe. * * * Dehorning calves is a growing prac tice, and has proved beneficial to all con cerned, and if it be practised on several generations, the operation will be able fo be dispensed with altogether, as we would gradually cultivate a race of polled cattle of all breeds. '♦ * * It is not neces'sary to point out to stock owners the severe injuries which horned cattle inflict upon one another either in the field or milking' yard, and when tra velling in trucks, very often by accident more than by set purpose. To understand the i...
