SULPHUR FOR FOWLS. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 28 May 1915
SULPHUR. FOR, FOWL. The need, of sulphur in spring. 'for breeding birds has been amply proved by experiments .made .in i?rance and elsewhere to test..the vitality of eggs for hatching. A noted French scien tist affirmed that eggs, deficient in sulphur, organic salts, etc., would not hatch well. To test this, sulphur was fed twice a week in the proportion of a dessert spoonful to twelve hens. An adjoining flock was treated under the same conditions of confinement, feed and attendance, :but deprived ocf sulphur. The~eggs ,were put in separate trays. - Fifty per' cent. failed .to hatch from the'hens which got ,no sulphur, whel'eas?'only ten per cent., failed. to hatch from the hens which got the sul-. phur. Another test showed that the embryos of the eggs of the best laying hays died first, and the pareutage was larger than from moderate layers, which conclusively proved that because of their prolificacy the sulphur was exhausted from the food..

A GOOD DAIRY COW. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and Queanbeyan Observer — 28 May 1915
A COOD DAIRY COW. 'In" a good dairy cow the hindquarters should. be heavy and the forequarters coinparatively 'Iight. in build. This gives a goodilength from- the loins to the setting :on of thhe tail. and also gives width across the loins, and under such arrangement the size of the udder will generally depend.: Again, :inidaily cows, the front legs need not Jbe wide apart, while the wider -the ;hind legs the more room there is for the develop ment of the udder. The higher the hind flanks the better, so as to admit of the udder, expanding sideways. It will boe observed that a typical dairy cow has usually a slim and slender neck, the veins of which are usually prominent. Still more so are the milk veins, while the udder or "bag," as it is more commonly called, should reach well under the animal, and well out behind.the hind legs, and not, as many do, dropping down and turning up abruptly. The head should be typical of the breed, and under no circum stances select what is commonly ca...
