METHODS OF MILKING. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 5 June 1914

METHODS OF MILKING. Tile art of milking cows is important if one wishes to mnako them come up to their highest possible capaoity3' lecd, care, housing, breeding, ail lre factors in milk production; but the process of milking itself is no small part of the trade. One writer advises.putting two calves with a short-teated cow. If she is not a dairy oow this may do, but there is a way to milk her by hand that is practised by the Swiss who are great dairy people. This method is useful in milking any cow; the writer prefers :it to the ordinary way. The ordinary way is to grasp tlhe tent with the thumb and fingex ex tending clear around on both sides, squeezing first the thumb and first finger and so on down. This method requires considerable strength if one has a number of heavy milkers to look after. It -will not work well with cows havilg short teats. The Swiss method is to place the back of time thumb (the nail side) against the. teant and press against it with Uso lingdrs beginning, o...

CHANGE OF BLOOD IN THE HERD [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 5 June 1914

CHANGE OF BLOOD IN THE HERD We sortletines -hear of flocks and herds which are supposed to be runll out -that is, they have decreased vita lity. The cure is to have a change of sires, and to introduce animals of un doubted vigour who have no blood re lationship to others. "This, however, has to be done very carefully, A sire that is kept too long may be used on his owns proge'ny, and nothing would reduce: the vitality of the stock more than this. - On the other hand, a very drastie change might be disastrous, and great care must be exercised itn takitg the change. The fact that animals in a state of na:tllre rutsI wild and breed any how has .lo hearing at all itpoll the slb jeet. A hIerd of cattle, for instance, al ways have a ''king bull'' at their head anid he gets his place sillply by strengthl andl vigour in lighting otlherbulls andl keeping themt in the backgrounid. As soon as hlie weakens a bit sotme other bull deploses him, and ill this way the vigour of tile herd is kept up....

NATURE MAINTAINS FERTILITY. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 5 June 1914

NATURE MAINTAINS FERTILITY. It is well to know how organic mat ter from plants and animals is con vertrd into food for plants, says "Farm aInd Ranch." Everyone is familiar with the odour of fermenting nuiusre. This is a good example of tile piroces. of nitrification iWhich changes organic matter into available plant food. Cer tain bacteria attack the manuro and converI t it into ammonia, which gas has the foul smell. Other bacteria con vert thle ammolnia into nitrous ac'ds or nitrates, which are further transformed into nitric acid or niitrates by other bacteria. In the fornu of niitrates this is soluble in water, and is readily taken up blIv plalts. This same pro oess is constantly takinig place in the soil. Lcees, stalks, or other organic matter in the soil pass thiough this process calll niitrification, a portion being transformcd into nitrates nad a large portion ieng mrJioken downi into mould called humus. After tlhe nit rates are used by the plants, and the plamts build up the...

A GREAT PERFORMANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 5 June 1914

A GREAT PERFORMANCE. An English milking Shorthorn, 1o del Maid, eight years 0old, the property for the year ended witlh August. Inast of Mr. J. Sheppey, to Bristol, yielded for the year ended with August last 22,348 lbs of milk. The calf was her fourth. The same cow put tup an English re cord at tho last Londo:l Dairv Show 'S gallons. In thlle first week of the test she gave 239 gallons; in the last, 210; and in the sixth as much as 605k. Lungs were made for breathing pir' poses, thereforo do not bank up the stables until they are to all intent air tight. Some folks run away from bad news, a fact that exlplains why some folks don't want to knon- how poorly their cows are doing. There is no end of horse sense. It is the fool lman that often plays the m;schief with the team. Weo hear a good deal about the cow boarder that fai's to pay her board, but it requir's patienro and persever ance to get the other sort. Dairymen should learn a lesson from the hen men.

TURF TOPICS. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 5 June 1914

TURF TOPICS. (By "Flemlngton."). Though nothing is settled yet, there is just a possibihty that Burrawang will be given another ohanco on the Turf. Tile big Simmer horse has had a season at the stud, and now seems to be thoroughly sound again. At his best; Burrawang was a performer ot class, and .there is no reason why he should not come back to form if his doubtful leg holds through a prepara tron. Yearlings are more numerous* than ever at Flemington this season, even though James Scobie is only now hand ling oight young ones against twice that number last year. Taking them all round, the young stock at present in hand are well up to the average. As might be supposed after the success of his first season at the stud, The Wel kin is well represented. So far this season eight of the young Welkins have won 14 races between them, which is a great start for a young sire. Another English importation which appears likely to make his mark as a sire is Beau Brocade. His youngsters have not ...

MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 5 June 1914

H-ELBOURNE LETTER (From Oar Special Correspondent). In marked contrast to the. scare which last winter sent people in thou :sads to the vaccinators Is the Indif berence with which the recrudescence of small pox in Sydney is viewed, here. Under the extremely loose way of deal ing with patients and contacts now prerailing the chances of the unplea sant disease extending Its scope of ope rations to Meolbourne are by no-means remote. Buut faniliarity with the menace and the absence of a death roll in the contaisinated oity--sufficiently formidable to arrest attention, have dulled apprehensions. Perhaps when a few cases actually occur here there will be a different attitude, and, lot us hope, for the sako of the reputation of the city, that it will be more of the 'get-up-and-get" order than that of the Sydney people, who with Oriental in difference, seem to be content that tlhe city, of whichl they are so proud, should continue indefinitely to be the plague spot of Australia.

THE SORREL WEED.—HOW TO KILL IT. [Newspaper Article] — Seymour Express and Goulburn Valley Avenel, Graytown, Nagambie, Tallarook and Yea Advertiser — 5 June 1914

THE SORREL WEED.-HOW TO " KILL IT. As regards grazing or cropping there is no greater vegetation pest than sorrel, nor one in conneotion with which we ("Loader") receive more communi cations asking for information as to how to get rid of it. One correspon dent asks whether, it is true that lirm 'intg is a remedy, and while it can be said that a dressing of agriculturalI lime ;is good, still it is not effective by it self. There are other measures neces sary as well, just as in thle cultivation bf lhind good ploughling and afterwards well knockidg the sorrel about with the cultivator or harrows in hot weather is good for killing the pest, yet this is lnot alone sufficient. How to get rid of this pest is ex plhined by a study of its character. Tlh sorrel plant as far as its root svs item is concerned, very much resembles the Californian tbhistle. From each fIain root stem there grows out later ally, at intervals on its way down aards, other root growths from each of which other rootle...
