WHY HENS FAIL TO LAY. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 2 May 1914
WHY HENS FAIL TO LAY, Hens are individuals, and the dif ferent members of a flock may in no manner be alike. When it is claimed that a flock does not lay, it must be considered that some of the best hens to be found may be in the flock, and may be laying but as many in the flock may be non-producers, the good liens fall under condemnation simply for being in bad company, One of the mistakes made is in not culling the flock so as to retain only the profitable liens, Many persons have become disgusted with poultry as a business because they kept at an expense a lot of hens that were not worth the room they occupied, and which served only as an encumbrance to those that were producers, and this mistake is a very common one with those who buy a large number of hens with which to begin, as they are sure to receive some that are useless along with the best. Any system of feeding is expensive if the hens do not lay, and the greater the number of non.productive hens the more cost is added t...
FLOCK MANAGEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 2 May 1914
FLOCK MANAGEMENT. If strong, healthy mand vigorous lambs are wanted, extra care must be given to the ewe flock from time of mating to time of lambing, During this time the ewes should be steadily gaining in flesh. It is not desirable that the ewe flock after mating should over have to become the scavengers of the farm; that business should. be left for store sheep. The ewe flock is ,too valuable for that work, for it. is from this flock that the future feeding lamb is obtained. One often hears of heavy losses be ing experienced by sheep breeders through ewes being frightened by dogs and other causes, and this brings to mind reasons that ought to be up. permost in the minds of all those who have charge of lambing ewes. Among them there is one precaution that should never be absent, and that is this: That the ewe flock should never be allowed to be rushed by the phop herd's dog, nor should it. be hurried when being driven, nor under any cir cumstances should it be given an opportunity...

SIZE OF SHEAF. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 2 May 1914
SIZE OF SHEAF, There can be no set size for a sheaf, Al the size must be regulated accord. ing to conditions. For instance, in wet districts, or where the crops are late in maturing, the small sheaf is the safer, as the sun and wind are better able to penetrate through the sheaf, and so minimise the risk of sprouting or moulding about the band, Again, by makinig the sheaves on the small size, stacking can be commoncs ed a day,or two sooner. On the oth. er hand, however, the large-slzed s'eaves have their advantages. First, it is more economical on twine: sec ondly, much time is saved in stook ing and stacking; thirdly, a fair-sized sheaf will stand up against winds in the stook better than the small size.
