AGRICULTURAL NEWS & NOTES MONEY IN PIG RAISING. ' There is hopeful promise of the expan ! sidii of all live stock industries in Aus tralia. In none is there a better out look, so far as the. small land-owner is concerned, than in pig raising. This i industry, whether as an adjunct to gene ral farming, dairying, or fri\it growing, 1 ougtat to receive much more- attention than has been paid to it. It is essen > tially an industry for small holdings. There is an attractive profit in it to-day, and t'iierc is every indication that how j ever rapidly t':ie industry may expand, the business will continue to afford at tractive profits to those who give it pro per attention. In 1901, there were I 350,000 pigs- in Victoria and last year | only- 240,000, notwithstanding that I population has increased in tihe interval, ! and, what is more important still, that i the consumption of pig products per head of population has increased.

CHAMPION MAY RE-APPEAR. TRAFALGAR TO TRAIN AGAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 9 May 1914

M—i CHAMPION MAY RE-APPEAR. (, TRAFALGAR TO TRAIN AGAIN. Racegoers will be pleased to learn that Trafalgar, the most popular horse since the time of Carbine, his grand-sire, may be seen in action again. In the present dearth of first-class horses the re turn of the old champion would be welcome. It has been decided to put the chestnut into work once more, and with that end in view he will shortly reach Flemington from Bringenbrong. and take up his old quarters in W. S. Hickenbotham's stable. If Trafalgar passes safely through his preparation,. and satisfies his trainer that he retains his form, the public will see a good deal more of their favorite. But it may be taken for granted that Trafalgar will not be in any way subjected to a severe strain, and if there is any sign of a leg weakness returning or any doubt of him coming to himself again, it is not likely that Trafalgar will be persevered with. Hickenbotham thinks far too much of Trafalgar to risk a breakdown with him, or to ex...

THE WEIGHT OF A HAYSTACK. A SIMPLE METHOD OF APPROXIMATION. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 9 May 1914

THE WEIGHT OF A HAYSTACK. A SIMPLE METHOD OE APPROXI MATION. Iii ascertaining the number of tons of hay m a slack, many farmers roly upon mere guesswork,, but something near the approximate weight may bo obtained if the length and width, bo measured, and then a tape passed from the bottom of the. stack oil ono side to the bottom on the other side, and this measurement , which is called the overthrow, aud the answer will give the number of cubic feet in the stack. Of course, if the stack lias different widths or different heights, measure ments will have to be taken in several places. the average of these being ob tained by adding them together ajid di viding by the number of measurements made. 'l'lio number of cubic feet of hay per ton varies considerably with the length of time that it lias been stacked. AVith ueuly stacked hay it will take about 500 cubic feet to equal a ton, and' if it lias been stacked for two or three months, from 350 to 400 i'cet. After the number of cubic fee...

POULTRY FEEDING—VARIOUS METHODS. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 9 May 1914

POULTRY FEEDING-VARIOUS METHODS. Tlio question of l'oeding is oil all fours with that of housing; there are many different methods and systems, all of which have their ardent sup porters and opponents.

As ill the mattcx* of housing, it is impossible for a hard and fast rule to be laid down for a system of feeding which shall Ijo equally suitable for all places and (?liinates. Tlio diet suitable for a per 011 living in, say, Fiji, would not be tho most suitable for some one in tlio Antarctic regions, and tlio same reasoning applies to our feathered friends. Or course, the sam-a diet would possibly sustain life in both tho geographical extremes just mentioned, but in treating of tho feeding of fowls we do not merely want to feed them in order to keep them alive, but .so that the best return ill the shape of i'ggs may bo had from them.

PIG-KILLING ON THE FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Mortlake Dispatch — 9 May 1914

PIG-KILLING ON THE FARM. Jt is remarkable, "i'ig Breeder" writes, how lew farmers lciJl ;md dress (.hi-1 pigs they fatten. Fat pigs aro taken alive to the saleyards, where two or three buyers present have already arranged prices and their respective proportions to the yarding. Some are chary of trying to slaughter for mar ket, not lieing sure of the details, such as the temperature. Yet with a ther mometer it is an easy tiling to turn out a well dressed pig. The writer has forwarded numbers of porkers to town, and has had them purchased in tho auction rooms by soino of the: lead ing city butchers. The simplest manner of disabling a pig for sticking is to usu a pea rille. Shoot the pig in the centre of the forehead. When fairly hit tho pig drops and may be handled easily. It is necessary to bo quick 111 turning it 011 its back and sticking it. Turn the pig 011 its back, hold tho left fore Jeg in the left hand, plaoo the right foot on the pig's shin, insert the knife about the point o...
