NOTES ON CHICKEN-RAISING. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 18 November 1914

NOTES ON CHICKEN-RAISING Ihcre lire a number of methods as regards the actual brooding, which are iu constant and successful use, anil it is with these it is proposed to ileal with the lieu to mother the chicks, brietly. First, we have the natural way, Providing a good quiet lion is avail able, this is the simplest and at the same time, the most successful way of raising chicks, in small quantities. For tho person who only wants to raise, say, up to a hundred chicks, broody hens will (lo tho work satisfactorily/ and at a minimum of labour. -Tho usual pre cautions as to (lusting tho hen 'with insect powder must bo observed, as otherwise the chicks will not thrive as they ought. Another method of brooding, , the 'Tireless,'' is still in favour with some people. A "fireless" brooder usually consists of a box or frame about 20 in. square and six inches deep. Tho "roof" or "hover" is composed of a frame work of light wood, which carries .1 piece of blanket loosely stretched across it, so...

SEAWEED FOR MANURE. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 18 November 1914

SEAWEED FOR MANURE. I Seaweed, which is plentiful on soriio I coasts, forms a cheap and valuable [ manure. Tho composition varies with the var iety, but tho following may be takon as the approximate analysis:— Water 50 per cent. Organic matter 10—20 per cent. Xitrogeu t\—.73 per cent. Potash 3—1.9 per cent. Pliosphoru- acid .1—.5 per cent. From the above analysis it "will be sesn that seaweed is comparable as a- man I uro with farmyard manure, being, | however, slightly delicient in plios } phates. / It has the advantage of being fiec.' *, from wood s2cds. ^

GREEN MANURING. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 18 November 1914

GREEN MANURING. Green manuring is effective both on sandy and heavy clay soils, and, in deed, in all soils deficient iu humus. On.sandy soils its effect is to con solidate the soil, and in clay soils it acts by loosening tho texture and let ting tho air act on it. i When con ditions as to warmth and moisture are favorable, tho green crop decomposes without much delay, and ^the produe-. tion of n. solublo plant fo'od proceeds with "considerable rapidity.; • This is especially the caso with the valuable nitrogenous portion of the _ green stuff., Nitrification, that, is tho, conversion of the nitrogeuous material, of tho,plant into soluble'nitratos, takes place quickly. Iii sandy soi}s green manure nitrifies more quickly than ' ordinary organic manures, such as bono dust, ground horns, dried blood, otc., while in stiff clays it uitrifies mora, rapidly than even sulphate of ammonia or animal manures.' The need of a largo proportion of our northern wheat soils is humus, and this method o...

SUSCEPTIBILITY OF MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 18 November 1914

SUSCEPTIBILITY OF MILK. As an instance of the iniluence lhat objectionable odours have on milk oven before being drawn from the cow, the following ease is reported:—A herd of milking eows were put iu a iield, in one part of which a calf had been buried, but not sulliciently deep. Thus the cows breathed the air infected with the mia sma of putrefaction. The milk of the cows was found to be spoilt—uot only so, but the contagion seemed in some way to pas-* to the milk of some other cows that were in contact with them iu the milking shod. Other facts show ing the sensitiveness of milk ure cited. If a bowl of milk happens to be left near a vessel containing a preparation of tar, the milk will absorb the odour, and milk should bo avoided that lias been standing in the room of anyone suffering from tuberculosis. These facts demonstrate the necessity of caro in handling milk, and show that cow jheJs should be kept in a condition ol; great cleanliness, and that oven the air that tho animals ...
