CATARACT ON THE EYE. A PREVALENT BLEMISH IN HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 29 May 1914

CATAflACrT i I THE EYE. A iPRnVALENT BLEMISH IN HORSES. A congcnital disease, often observced in -hcrsc in. particular loealities, is ca t,:ract. This consists of an opacity in one of the deeper struoturcs of the eye, lknown as the crystalline lens, that is situated immnediately behiud the pu pil. The effect of this opacity is to obstruct the passage of lighlt to the ie tina, and so cause iartial or completo iilindnies, depeinding upon slle extent to which hllo disease has pi'ogressed. Opacities of the cornea-the transpar ent memohbrane that forms the anterior coat of the eyeball--must not be mis taken for eataract. When cataract is well developed the pupil of the eySo is a. whitish or grey ish appearance, but small cataracts re quire close observatioin for their detec .n. The eye may be examined by shading it with a black hat, the head being turned away from the light.

PROVIDING FEED FOR EARLY SPRING. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 29 May 1914

PROVIDING FEED FOR EARLY SPRING. Now is the time to think about pro vidnig feed for the early spring months -the wet August and tihe cold Sep tomber-when all the cows are newly calved, and they" are rather low in condition. Rye corn is the best p!::nt for making growth in the winter, and this is what Burlmkett says about it in his valuable book, "arm COrops": RYE. Rye will grow much better on rich laid thui on land tl.at is poor. N\ver theless, it is grown chiefly on la:.d that is sandy in ?.cu.re am:d that is low in fertility. L is so g,.wn because other cereals cannot hoe grown with equal success on such soils; but there are wide areas in many states well adapted to its growth and on these it is not grown. The habit of growth in rye enables it to gather food in soils where other cereals would fail. The ground is prepared for rye as for other crops, that is, by ploughing to a reasonable depth. It is not necessary to plsough so deeply as for some other crops, especially on sandy soi...

POULTRY YARD. THE BEST WINTER. LAYERS. Most poultry authorities say that tlse best layers of cggs in uinter are the s.tting breeds, and supplement this view by pointing omit tht the sitting breeds are generally better protected by their heavrier plumnage, against cold weather. This is true to a certain ex tent, but as the sitting breeds take !o,:ger to reach th.ir egg-laying stage than the non-sitting breeds, they should be hatched out early in tihe season, so as to enable them to reach maturity before tlhe cold weather sets in. CHARCOAL AND rOULTRY. Charcoal is not alone a preventive of disease, because of its great capacity for absorbinlg gases, but it seemns to exert a benelicial effeot on the growth of fowls to which it is fed.
