CHOOSING BREED FOR BEES. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 12 March 1915

CHOOSING BREED FOR BEES. It is frequently remarked that the queen bee is everything to the hive. She is in many respects responsible for results obtained, and in consequence must be chosen according to results de sired. From anmong the numerous races of hive bees there is one outstanding breed which, after trials beside other breeds in the same apiaries, has proved itself the best for most of the purposes for which a beekeeper wants bees. This breed is the leather-colored Italian, a native of northern Italy. In America, where the first important trials were made with this bee, it was found to be gentle, industrious, not very excitable. hardy, and, about all, less prone to swarm than other races. That it pos sesses these characteristics, and they can be enhanced by careful selection in queen breeding, has been proved in this State. In New South Wales, in particular, and elsewhere, one valuable point has been observed in connection with pure leather Italian colonies; they seoK noney a...

PIG ITEMS. DISARMING THE BOAR. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 12 March 1915

PIG ITEMS. DISARMING THE BOAR. The tusks of a boar ought to be kept short. This not only makes himn less a menace to the other animals, but many pig-raisers believe him less fierce and self-confident. An inch and a half in length is about the limit to which the lower tusks should be allowed to grow. This means taking. them off once every six months. The quickest and one of the commonest ways of dis posing of them is to knock them off with cold chisel and hammer. The trouble with this method is that it is likely to splinter the bone around the socket of the tusk, and I have even known the jaw-bone to be broken. A much better way is to break the tusk off with long horse nippers or with blacksmith's pincers; or the tusk can be nicked deeply on both sides with a three-cornered file, after which it can be knocked .off with greater safety, though it is still better to use pincers. The stub can be smoothed down with a few strokes of a flat file. To hold him for this or any other operation ...

WHY ALLOW LICE ON YOUR HENS? [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 12 March 1915

WHY ALLOW LICE ON YOUR HENS? (By .1. A. Helmrich, Colarado, Agricul tural College.) The estimated offspring from a sin gle pair of lico in oight weeks' is' 1256,000. Lice are insects which inhabit the feathers of the bird. They have not a piercing mouth, but one that is used for biting. The louse subsists on the production of the. skin andfrag mIonts of feathers. It-is not so much what they get as aourishment from the individual that hurts, as' .the violent itching and pain they cause, especially if present in large numbers. They also spread as rapidly as they breed. The lice from one indi?idial may spread' through the entire flock. Factors which favor their development are poorly ventilated quarters, insuffi cient food and weak stock. The bird that looks poor and sickly is the one most likely to be infested. Treatment.-Provide the flock with a dust bath, and apply the following home-made powder:-To one part of crude carbolic acid and three parts of gasoline, add enough plaster of p...
