FEEDING FARM ANIMALS. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 11 November 1914

FEEDING FARM ANIMALS. For beef, milk, mutton, pork, and bacon production, ouo must feed aii additional quantity of food. Wo may call this tho ''manufacturing diet/' and as suck it must bo regarded as au essential addition to the 4*niainten ance diet'* for any animal that is uti lised in iho production of the com modities mentionpd above. So com plex is the utilisation of food in tho animal body that it becomes impossible to lay down any hard and last rules for determining tho "manufacturing diet.'' Tho ho?»t way is to make an indi vidual study u? each animaJ. if 0110 cow yields normally, say, 800 gallons of milk per annum, it will most likely require moro additional food than oud yielding normally only 500 gallons. Mui. thtTo are exceptions; hence tho need for studying tho individuality oi cons. Feed according to tho " milk yield and the digestive capacity—that is the bust rule to go by.

ROOTING DEPTHS OF PLANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 11 November 1914

ROOTING DEPTHS OF PLANTS. A .study of the growth and develop ment of tho roots of plants is of prac tical interest. Certain systems of planting and cultivation have been practised because experience has shown them to l»o the best, often without the reason being known. Study of the soil and of the roots of plants throws light upon some of the difficult problems of erop production, and leads to better farming. Wheat and oats do not spread out their roots so far horizontally as do the roots of most other cultivated crops, but penetrate deeper into the soil. Grass is a soil maker and a soil pro tector. Xo other crop equals the per ennial grasses in producing such an im mense growth of roots in tho upper lay er of the soil, and the roots of some varieties of grass also penetrate deep, being exceeded in this respect ouly by one other class of crop, the perennial legumes. Lucerne is tho deepest rooting plant of the cultivated crops. It makes only a flmall fibrous growth of roots iu tho upp...

Cream rises fast in warm milk and also fustor in cooling milk.

TREAT PASTURE LANDS LIBERALLY. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 11 November 1914

TREAT PASTURE LANDS LIBERALLY. We are apt to think Hint arable In nil is more subject to loss from cropping than pasture lands, says the "Mark Lane Express," ami as a consequence of thin view much pasture land has been neglected. We are accustomed to think that two, or more than two, white straw crops in succession exhaust a field, and'to forget that a eon* yielding tG00 gallons of milk; say from 1st April to 1st November, removes 12 lbs. of phos .pliorie acid from au aero of land, be sides what' she stores up in the body of her unborn calf.' Such a cow removes at least 15 lbs. of phosphoric acid from the land on which bm grazes every year, whereas two com crops only re move 12 -lbs. in four years. It is, therefore, certain that in four years a good eow will remove 50 per cent, more phosphoric acid from an aero c*f land, supposing she grazes an' aero. Even if sho requires "1% acrcs of good pasture to support hor, she will remove as much phosphoric acid per aero as is re moved by cor...

PLANTS AND NITRATES. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 18 November 1914

PLANTS AND NITRATES. Kxpurimutit citrriud out at th« Cor noli University Experimental Station has shown thai, cropB differ from 0110 another in nvij^ct of the occurrence of nitrates in the soil on which they grow and that for any one woil the nitrate content is largely dependent upon the crop grown. Field experiments have, therefore, beo*i conducted with a num ber of crops over n poriod of six years, and determinations tivado as to the offift of each crop ou tlw nitrate con dition of the soil. The nitrate content of soil under timothy, maize, potatoes, oats, millot and soy bean* was found to bo differ ent for each crop on the same soil, and there was a characteristic relationship between the nitrate content of the eoit and the *Top at different stages ot growth. During tho moat active grow ing period of maize, nitrates were fre quently higher under the maize than in cultivated soil boaring no crop. This may bo accounted for on tho assump tion that nitrate t'ormatiou is Htimu lated b...

DOESN'T WEAN PIGS. Keed pips warm swim-milk and when they will take it a little shelled maize s:.id Mr. John Inirio boforc the Wis ••onsin Fanners' Institute Round-up. We make what we call a "pig creep," by raising the door between the pen where the mother feeds and the next ;>ae, just enough to lot the little ones -rawl through, putting the milk in a shallow dish or trough, feeding only what they will drink up clean, then .•leau the dish before feeding again. I •wish to say that the food of the sow after farrowing is not given enough at tention by some pig raisers. Tho mother needs no nourishment for two days after farrowing, just, a little drink, and then increase the feed gradually until she is on full feed by the ond of the week. We do not wean our pips, that is shut them up to \vean them. They are weaned, in the natural way and never lyiow when they cease to depend on the motftcr and begin to depend on us for their food.

The virtues of lime have been demonstrated over and over again in different parts of the country.
