WEANING PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 19 November 1914

WEANING PIGS. Almost every breeder or pork pro ducer has his own special method of weaning pigs. The moat important con sideration in all methods is to see that' the pigs are so weaned that they do not cease growing or loso during this critic al period. Some pigmen prefer to allow the pigs to run with the sows until they wean themselves; others practice forced weaning at three or four months of age. A method very commonly advised is to wean the pigs a few at a time, taking out the largest, strongest ones at first and leaving the smallest and runtiest pigs until the last. Where this method can be conveniently carried out it is undoubtedly a good one, but as a rule circumstances on the average farm are such that it is not practical to wean the pigs in this manner. Pigs should always be encouraged to begin eating additional feed as early as possible. Wherever swim-milk is available this may be given in a pen into which the pigs only can go. A little shorts and maize may bo fed with ski...

CHARCOAL FOR CHICKENS. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 19 November 1914

CHARCOAL FOR CHICKENS. Too much caunot bo said iu favor of ihe use of charcoal in raining and ( maintaining chickens of all agos. Char coal pruilles the blood and absorbs the noxious gases generated in the diges tive organs and neutralises their cffcct. It should be used in the first feed given , the baby chicks, and continued through out the entile life of the chicken. A | small quantity should be mixed with | the daily mash. About live pounds of »harcoaI to every four hundred pounds j of uiaisU is a very good proportion. Be sides this it is well to keop a two-com partment hopper of charcoal and oyster shell in the laying house, so fchat the hens may help themselves at will. For baby chick? mix about a large tesspoouful of charcoal in a quart, of mash and you will lind they will clean this up with the rest of their food. Charcoal is one of the best regulators known to poultrymeu, but liko every thing else must bo used with discre tion. For instance, if a large quantity is put iu th...

Tho morning had broken in a still grey mist, but as the day advancod in its flower-crowned march, it was brightened by a blaze of sunshine, which dried tlie dewdrops on the roses, and mnde them bloom into more perfect life.

QUICK FATTENING OF PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 19 November 1914

QUICK FATTENING OF PIGS. "Pigs weighing 100 lb. at four months," is the heading of a letter from a correspondent to "Hoard's Dairyman," In America, who says: "I have frequently read of quick fattening of pigs, and believe my experience may be of interest. X have a pure Chester White sow that farrowed sitxeen pigs; shq raised twelve of them. When six teen weeks old theso pigs were killed, taken to the market and sold. They averaged 93 lb. each, the total weight being 1,117 lb., and at 12% cents. (6V4d.) per lb. (the market price), they brought mo 139 dollars 62 cents (£20 10/ roughly). The sire of these pigs was a pure-bred Berkshire boar, which we find a good cross, as the pigs come white, and they do not have tho smoky look that a Berkshire has. "We find it almost impossible to sell a pig that weighs more than 150 lb., and 80 lb. to 100 lb. is the quickest selling'weight to bring a good price. I once reached 13 eents. (6%d.) per lb. To get the pigs ready for the market at four mont...

SUMMER FODDER CROPS. ADVICE TO IRRIGATORS. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 19 November 1914

SUMMER FODDER CROPS. ADVICE TO IRRIGATORS. With the object of assiting settlers is irrigation areas In the cultivation of mmmer fodder crops the Agricultural department ha* issued a bulletin dealing with tho subject. In au article contri buted by Mr. Tomple, chief fiold officer, is contained advico as to the character of the cropj that should be grown and the conditions under whioh cultivation xhould take place. Ho has stated that it is not absolutely necessary to have graded land for irrigation, though it is i always an advantage in securing a more even distribution of water; but with n canvas hose and lift-pumps fairly large areas can bo watered and success is siir»d during a dry spell. Small pad daeks, however, are essential, as stock should not be put on land being irri gated, and a few weeks' spell to the different crops leads to a greatly in creased fodder supply and carrying capacity. Seeding operations under the conditions specified can bo followed well into January, though ...
