SELF-EDUCATION IN DAIRYING. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 11 September 1907

SELF-EDUCATION IN DAIRYING. 1 It Is not possible to refer in one brief article to the many important subjects which must receive the attention of the dairyman If tie is to make a success of the business (writes E. K. Slater in the 'Country Gentleman'). Let us only consider the subject of self-education. applying the searchlight of cold facts to it. and ascertain what relation it bears to the caution of this article. Cold fact No. 1. — The dairy farmers who do not take and read dairy and farm literature are the most unsuccessful in the business. Cold fact No. 2. — The dairy farmer who does not make a study of his busi ness, and the performance of his indi vidual cows, has always failed. Cold fact No. 3r— The reverse of these is true. The dairy farmer who reads □airj' and farm literature, and takes an interest In his business, will succeed. ' What is the course to pursue In edu cating one's self in the dairy business?

THE BEEKEEPER COMB FOUNDATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 11 September 1907

^f^^EJB^^^ COMB FOUNDATION. Concerning the thickness of comb foundation to be used, Hr C. P. Dadant, the famous American beekeeper, states that one gives foundation, and the bees are not too much in a hurry they will draw It almost entirely into comb. If they are in a hurry, he continues, and they have plenty of wax, they will add to the foundation without drawing it much. They will always work the foun dation over, change the shape of It to suit themselves. They always thin it a little, If they have plenty. Of course, it is according to the grades of founda tion; the thicker is always the best for comb honey. What we call extra thin we have always considered the best for starters or sheets In the supers. I think very little of that will go Into the cell, wall. It will nearly all remain In the midrib, because it Is so very thin. Therefore, I wa'nt to advise people to use the very thinnest for their sections. But with medium and light brood. It 1b out of the question to furnish that ...

CLEANING HIVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 11 September 1907

CLEANING HIVES. The Injurious effect of bad air Is one of the oldest and best known points of sanitary science, but refuse of ail kinds is allowed to accumulate In beehives dur ing the winter, and remains until thebeea remove It. Besides being beneficial to the health of the bees, the removal of all debris every spring makes work about the hive more comfortable, and every thing nicer and better generally, as well as preventing the wholesale crushing to death of bess. Wherever there Is pro polis it is certain that there Ie a crevice, or something which fits imperfectly. When well made hives are kept clean It Is a pleasure to work them; there is no breaking or forcing apart, and con sequent jarring and Irritation of the bees. The modus operandl for spring cleaning Is very simple. Get the smoker going well, and a veil on, take an empty brood chamber and floorboard, send a few whiffs of smoke in at the entrance of the hive to 'be operated upon, remove It to one side, placing the empty o...

THE VINEYARD. PROTECTION AGAINST SPRING FROSTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 11 September 1907

SHE ^NEYARD. '? /.? ?'??j . ?'?' ???-??..? ? ? ? ? i ?? PROTECTION AGAINST SPBINO FROSTS. The damage sometimes caused in the vineyard by Spring frosts was some time ago referred to by Hr R. Dubois, at one time associated with the Vic torian viUcultural industry. Spring frosts (wrote Mr Dubois) are two kinds ; —back and ' white— and both affect our { vineyards very severely. i According to Poex. black frosts are caused by a drop in the general tern- i perature. They usually occur before white frosts at the start of vegetation. When the atmosphere and soil are dry, and the thaw elow and progressive, little harm is done. When, on tbe other hand, the thaw is rapid, the shoots dry and the buds die. Black frosts often produce Bwellings or excrescences on the larger roots, the collar, or even the base of the spurs. These should be shaved off when pruning. ' Spurs, and frequently arms, wither away, and in this case the effect of frosts Is felt for many years. Stumps have to be cut back and ...

CONDITION OF THE HIVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 11 September 1907

CONDITION OF THE HIVES. At this time of the year It is well to examine the hives to discover whether the roofs have been leaking. If so, the quilts must be changed and the damaged roofs repaired. There Is no more fruit ful cause of dysentery among bees than dampness. Examine the colonies on e day when the sun is shining, and do it as expedl tlously and as thoroughly as possible. Those who failed to supply their bees with food In autumn shouldnow hasten to repair the neglect. The winter has, on the whole, been Eevere, and the bees may not have consumed so much food as they would have done during a yar^ ^er'i^tt.fc'i^lillj^itlKn^n^^e'.lBB^ ,tor,;^e'-'3^a^d!&'^tf'^^ iprliiigVJs.
