SOUTH AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENT PROTEST. Urges Abandonment of Scheme. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 30 May 1906
SOUTH AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENT PROTEST. Urges Abandonment of Scheme. A letter has been sent to Mr. Carruthers, Premier of New South Wales, by the South Australian Government respecting Dr. Danysz's experiment for destroying rabbits : — It states : 'Greatest concern is exper ienced by the people of this State with respect to the experiments proposed to be undertaken on Broughton Island, New South Wales, by Dr. Danysz with . a dis ease for the destruction of rabbits. It is felt that there is very great danger in in troducing a new disease, which may, after '^ a time, not only cease to be efficacious for the purposes' for which it is' intended, but in the meantime may possibly be com municated to other animals, and even to human beings. It is also considered that the export trade in preserved and frozen rabbits will probably be seriously affected through English customers becoming pre judiced against importations from a coun try where the animals are destroyed in the manner suggested. The...

He was successful in buying 175 head of pure-bred stock, which are now en route to his Went worthville Estate. Mr. Rex Blaxland, . also of Sydney, secured 290 head of An gora goats at the same sale. These two large purchases remove the mohair indus tr from South Australia to New South Wales.
THE DANYSZ EXPERIMENT. FOR AND AGAINST IT. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 30 May 1906
THE DANYSZ EXPERIMENT. FOR AND AGAINST IT. The Clarence Pastoral Society has pass ed a resolution strongly disapproving of Danysz's scheme for the extermination of rabbits, on the ground that there was a danger of spreading the disease broad cast. The Dubbo Municipal Council are in receipt of a petition, to be presented to Sir William Lyne, against the Danysz experiments. Alderman McGuinn said that while aldermen might have their own opinions as to the advisability of the pro posals, it was not the place of the coun cil, as a council, to discuss the question. He moved that the petition lay on the table, which was carried. A large meeting was held at Quean bcyan last week, the Mayor presiding, to protest against the proposal to intro duce a disease amongst rabbits. A reso lution to that effect was passed, also one asking that the Government erect freez ing works in the rabbit-infested districts to enable trappers to get the full value of the work.

VEGETABLES AS FIELD CROPS OR FOR KITCHEN GARDEN THE JERSEY ROYAL POTATO. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 30 May 1906
VEGETABLES AS FIELD CROPS OR & FOR KITCHEN GARDEN THE JERSEY ROYAL POTATO. From a morning contemporary we learned a few days since that in some, parts of our State growers are now busy digging the potato crop. In the. island of Jersey, in the English Channel, a sim ilar condition prevails, for about the mid dle of May thousands of Breton peasants rrusc frnm flip Frnnrh mast. find, hfiino' less fastidious than the pampered British laborer, are engaged by the farmers to dig potatoes. The variety mostly grown is the Jersey Royal, not that its quality com mends it to the connoisseur in potatoes, but because it is an early sort. As a mat ter of fact, it is distinctly watery ; never theless it enjoys an immense popularity, and brings a higher price than any of its rivals from the Canaries, Malta, or the South of France. * * * Jersey boasts of a higher yearly record of sunshine than any part of , England, and is further embraced by the warm wat ers of the Gulf stream, as well as be...
OLLA PODRIDA Political and Otherwise. A POLITICAL PARADOX. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 30 May 1906
— OLLA PODRIDA Political and ,T?.?.._.., Otherwise. By ' CYPHER.' S A POLITICAL PARADOX. It is a curious and somewhat paradoxi cal fact that, if the character of Australian political conditions is any criterion, the more enlightened and free a community may be, and the more democratic its form of government, the more is such a com munity beset with the craziest extremes nf nnlitirnl «:r-r*fnrinnicni rVn licfnn tn the perfervid oratory so lavishly poured forth week by week in the Domain or on the Varra bank, one would be tempted to believe that we are back in the dark ages, or else exist under a modern malevolent despotism similar to that of Russia. Of course this form of the disease is not taken seriously by anyone — the sufferer is regarded as incurable, and, at the most, it only excites pitying amusement ; but in its milder form the malady is sufficiently widespread to threaten danger to the sta bility of our present social fabric, our in dustrial system and our methods of governm...

THE KICKING COW. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 30 May 1906
THE KICKING COW. The kicking cow is possibly the great est nuisance on the farm, because she in a great measure is like the kicking horse — never completely broken of the habit. When a cow gets in the habit of raising her foot and banging away at something or somebodv every time her teats are toucneci, it seems so neipiui ana natural with her that she soon feels like kicking at everything that passes her way or comes near her. The cow raised out in the open herd and never handled or edu cated to understand human kind, only to be frightened by some one throwing at her or jumping at her to see her fright ened gyrations in trying; to get away to a safe distance, cannot be expected to be gentle and quiet when first penned to be milked. It takes a grandmaster in the cow-milking business to successfully han dle such a cow. A large percentage of such cows are turned loose to run in the herd and suckle their calves after a few weeks or a few days' effort to milk them. An excitable, high-tem...
UPPER MACLEAY BUTTER FACTORY. HICKEY'S CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 30 May 1906
UPPER MACLEAY BUTTER FACTORY. HICKEY'S CREEK. This factory was opened recently in splendid weather and in the presence of a large gathering of people. The building is situated on the bank of Hickey's Creek, close to the residence of Mr. Hill, the position being an excellent one, as there is a good water supply and suitable drain age facilities. The machinery was supplied and erec ted by Waygood Limited, and consists of one of their 16 h.p. boilers, driving the horizontal engine, which drives the main ?jutuv 111 tut. lauiui; j ni\_. u/cwcii.iv.1, ui niu machinery being driven from this. The refrigerator is one of their three-ton York machines, and was greatly admired by those present. There are two large tanks, one for brine and the other for cold water connected with the refrigerat ing machine, and also a cold storage room. The cream is received and weigh run into two of Waygood' s double coil ed on the receiving platform, and then attemperators, whence it runs to a Cherry churn, an...
HOGS FOR SMALL FARMERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 30 May 1906
HOGS FOR SMALL FARMERS., There is one advantage about pigs that make them emphatically the stock for the poor man or the small farmer, and that is the very quick returns which they afford by the rapidity with which they increase and come to maturity. A good brood sow, given good treatment, so as to be kept in a good thrifty condition, will farrow two good litters of pigs a year that will run rrom seven to eight pigs in each litter ; and if proper feed and care is given, these may be ready for market by the time they are eight or nine months old at the farthest. No other stock kept on the farm will make so good a return in so short a time. Sheep will come nearest to it, but in the same length of time a pig will make double the weight of a lamb. Another advantage with pigs is that they are marketable from the time they are farrowed until they are fattened for market. A sow with a litter of pigs, and growing pigs three, four, or five months old, will sell at full market prices ; so tha...

DAIRYING IN SOUTH AFRICA. We clip the following detail's of the tests made at the Bloemfontcin Show milking competitions, from the 'Farmers' Advo cate and Home Journal' : — 'The milk in each case was carefully weighed, and the percentage of fat ascer tained with the Babcock milk-tester. There were seven entries of cows in this class, tour ot winch competed tor tne prize. The animals were milked out clean at 6 p.m. on the evening prior to the test, and the award was made on the quantity and quality of milk produced at 10 a.m. next morning. The decision was given on the aggregate score for yield and richness in fat, a maximum of 50 points being allowed for quantity and 50 points for butter-fat contained therein.

HOW DAIRY HERDS ARE IMPROVED IN SOUTH AFRICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 30 May 1906
~^Br^mr^mr~^i m m w m m HOW DAIRY HERDS ARE IM PROVED IN SOUTH AFRICA. Mr. Percy D. Simmons, of the Natal Stud Farm, says: — 'I have used grade bulls, and though the results are naturally not so marked as from purebred sires, it is practicable and profitable, and a vast improvement on the old stock. We have instances of farmers (and a good many) who have never purchased a pedigree or purebred bull to put in their herds, but have only selected grade bulls for their use, and have built up herds little be hind those who have used only purebred bulls. I know of several herds — and nota bly of two — in our country, which are much in advance in every respect of others in which only ordinary bulls, or perhaps bulls with one or two pure crosses in their veins, have run. The breeders of these herds command much better prices for their stock than their neighbours.' How many dairymen in Australia could endorse these sentiments? j~ — — — — — — — —
THE BUSY TRAPPER. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 30 May 1906
THE BUSY TRAPPER. Messrs. Sheppard, Harvey, and Walker, of Sydney, are in receipt of a letter from a client in the Wallendbeen district, near Cootamundraj stating that, owing to the scarcity of men in his neighbourhood, he is obliged to postpone his chaff-cutting. This scarcity of hands is due to the good ilar state of things is said to exist in the Forbes and Parkes districts. Mr. W. J. White, lately returned from a tour in the south and west, state's that between Carcoar and Murrumburrah, and exclusive of Harden district, there are over 300 persons employed in the rabbit industry. Some are said to' be' earning ,£3 to J£4 per week. May to August is usually, the dull time of the year, and. these people regard the rabbit trade as a winter stand-by. Many of the small landowners are assisted by their sons, and occasionally by grown-up daughters, in trapping rabbits for sale of the carcases locally, and for export oversea ; also in baiting with jam and strychnine, which is preferable to...
IMPORTANT TO RABBIT CONSIGNORS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 30 May 1906
IMPORTANT TO RABBIT CON SIGNORS. Country agencies for the despatch of rabbits to Sydney have recently been for warding very large consignments, and the various works where rabbits are treated and packed have been, and continue to be, fully employed coping with the quantities. Some country stations, in stead of modifying their consignments at the close of the week, seem rather to in crease tnem, wnn tiie result mat lr me system is continued, some one, the Ex port Department thinks, will incur heavy losses. Rabbits consigned from country stations by trains arriving in Sydney on Sunday morning, run risk of having to be held in trucks or in open sheds until Mon day, as little or no extraneous storage space is available. At the Government Stores there is no room whatever for hold ing rabbits over Sunday, and it is advis able that country consignors limit their week-end consignments likely to arrive in Sydney on Sunday.
WIRE NETTING. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 30 May 1906
WIRE NETTING. Tenders for the supply of 4000 miles of wire netting' closed on Wednesday, and it is understood that four or five Australian tenders were received. Consideration of them has to be deferred, however, till par ticulars come to hand of tenders received in London, where they closed also on Tuesday.
A SQUATTER'S TESTIMONY. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 30 May 1906
A SQUATTER'S TESTIMONY. Mr. James M'Evoy, one of the leading pastoralists in the Gundagai district, says that rabbits will not now take the baits owing to the plentiful supply of green grass. On Tarrabandra, both poisoning and trapping had been tried, the former outside the rabbit-proof fence, and not 5 per cent, of the rabbits took the poison, whilst 40 rabbiters are catching from 40,000 to 50,000 per week, and earning from ,£2 to ,£4 a week. Mr. M'Evoy is satisfied that whilst poisoning is effective, in summer, trapping is immeasurably su perior in winter.
