RAIN HOLDS UP SOWING IN SOME AREAS [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 22 June 1951
RAIN HOLDS UP SOWING IN SOME AREAS Mr. F. Autrey-Hall, Dis trict Agronomist) said the recent falls of rain would be useful to all growth. However, it had stopped sow ing in the heavy clay country, i.e., the Bribbaree-Quandialla area. This would mean that sowing could not take place until too late a stage. It would be very beneficial now if the present warm weather continued, said Mr. Autry-Hall. The grazing was good, he state! As it was too close to winter, there would not be much growth and it would mean that at the conclusion of the season little feed would be available. Crops sown just before- 'the rains should have good growth, added the Agronomist.

LUCERNE IN HE WffiAT ROTATION Successes Wife Sown Pasture As lucerne is becoming more popular with the -wheat farmer for use in the wheat rotation, a trial was commenced in 1947, at the Department -of Agricul ture's Experiment Station Tran gie, to demonstrate the super iority of a sown pasture of 2 lb. lucerne, i lb. Wimmera rye and 2 lb. burr medic (Medicago denticulata) over naturally re generating pasture; seeding rate for the wheat was 50 lb. per acre. Both areas, each of 5 acres, were lightly stocked with sheep and cattle at periodic intervals from the time the wheat was harvested in November, 1947, until fencing materials were available in June, 1948. SHEEP PER ACRE Stocking figures over a 2-year period (1948/50) proved that the number of sheep per acre per annum on naturally regen erating pasture was 0.5, and on sown pasture 3.24. 'Heavy rainfall experienced during this period produced a large bulk of feed and made it possible to obtain more than average carrying capacity fig...

FACTS ABOUT BREAD [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 22 June 1951
FACTS ABOUT BREAD Since bread is probably the most popular of all Aus tralian foods, we should know just how it contrib utes to our diet and helps to supply our daily nut rientB. , One of the main reasons for eating bread is to satisfy our hunger. Bread is one of the foods which is high in carbohy drate., and so it makes an ap preciable contribution to our. calories each day. In addition, it contains protein, which helps to supplement the animal pro tein in our diet, minerals! such as calcium and iron, and vita min B. Any type of bread eaten in an ordinary mixed diet is a good food: however, different kinds of bread supply different amounts of food nutrients. The extraction rate of white flour, as we obtain it in New South Wales, is 70 per cent., which is quite high when compared with the flour of some other coun tries. Because of this, white flour still contains some pro tefn, vitamins and minerals, al though not as much as whole meal flour, which also contains the germ and the bra...
HOW HOUSEWIVES CAN OVERCOME BUTTER SHORTAGE [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 22 June 1951
OVERCOME '? . : BOim SHORTAGE ?': ? Jftiis'lMit generally known that the food values of but 1 ter and table margarine Are identical* both in calories ; and vitamins. J :^tfa the progressive fall in butter production in Australia. = ^ housewives can console them ' selves with the knowledge that margarine -will be more than a substitute. But can they? The facts are that because butter is marketed under a sub sidy scheme— with a relative low selling price— only; two-fifths of the total production of table margarine permitted by quan titative legislation is being pro duced and sold. ' Of the other three-fifths of possible 'production, if this amount is not produced and sold by June 30 next, the amount short produced cannot by law, be manufactured in any other period, so that if a butter short age does develop next year, table margarine will again be an under-the-counter line. Forecasts of butter shortage in Australia were made by ag riculture experts in every State and the causes were s...

MOTOR CYCLE ACCIDENTS [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 22 June 1951
MOTOR CYCLE ACCIDENTS The N.R.M.A. shares the alarm expressed' by the Austra lian Road Safety Council at the big increase in the number of accidents involving motor cyc lists. N.R.M.A. general secretary, Mr. H. E. Richards, said it was appalling that the number of motor cyclist fatalities through out Australia ? had increased from 281 in 1949 to 424 in 1950, compared with 202 and 2j59 re spectively for drivers of other motor vehicles Real reason for the high num ber of cyclist fatalities was their vulnerability, riders not having the protection of a steel body, he said. -Continued publicity of that point was necessary in an effort to induce added care among riders. -At the same time he appealed to drivers of other motor vehicles to appreciate cyclists' difficulties, not to crowd them off the road, but to allow them ample opportunity to pass on hills and other places where the greater manoeuvrability of cycles, made passing safe. Mr. Richards-,tliought a re view should A Wms&...
WOOL MEN WARNED When Damaged Drops Will Need To "Pull Up Socks" [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 22 June 1951
WON, MEN WARNED Wken Demand Drops Will Need To 'Tall Up Sotks' That high wool prices have not induced improvement in quality of the wool clip of New South Wales 1b the con sensus of opinion of Syd ney wool buyers and sellers who handled the 1950/51 clip on the brokers' show floors. The impression they gained was that high replacement stock costs had encouraged a less vigorous culling - of flocks by many growers, and this was confirmed by the increasing pro portion of shorter-stapled and doggy fleeces. Commenting on the' general character of the N.S.W. clip, Mr. R. Bavin, Dalgety's Sydney wool department manager, said that, while there was no retro gression in the quantity of either high-grade spinners' speciality wools, or deep-stapled Bradford warp types — in fact, some clips eclipsed their usual standards both in style and staple. Often while the leading lines of clips were most attract ve, the rest of the lots were be low standard. This was not al ways due to the inadequate, cull...

P.P. BOARDS NOT POPULAR WITH LANDS MINISTER [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 22 June 1951
NOT POPULAR WITH LANDS MINISTER Although he had no love for Pastures Protection Boardst said the Minister for Agriculture (Mr. E. H. Graham) , it 'Was impossible to 'wipe them out at the wave of a wand.' The Minister was answering a question at the rural confer ence of the State A.L.P. Mr. Piggott (Nepean) had asked the Minister to give an assurance that, as the abolition of PP. Boards was a plank of the Party's platform, he (Mr. Graham) would carry out any direction in that regard from the conference. Mr. Graham said such a mat ter would be brought before the notice of Cabinet and the Gov ernment for action. The Party, as an advocate of decentralisation of control, could not well take power away from the boards and vest it in county councils which, he said, were strongly anti-Labor. The 'Minister told the confer ence that investigation of the possible use of land held by P.P. Boards as travelling stock re serves was being made. It was believed some of the land would become availabl...
BUTTER: NEW SOUTH WALES [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 22 June 1951
BUTTER; NEW SOUTH WALES The total (amount of butter normally produced each season in this State is sufficient to al low a small nett export inter state and overseas. However, the usual seasonal fluctuation in output necessitates interstate imports during the off-peak (winter) months. During ^the current season. New South Wales is expected to be short of butter until August, and it is reported that two of the . four i* Sydney distributing companies will cut supplies to retailers by 25 to 50 per cent. It has been estimated that dur ing June and July the shortage will approximate 110,000 box es. This deficiency is ascribed to a variety pf factors — 'panic' buying by consumers, reduced prospective imports from, Vic toria and- Queensland following, in part, an unusual shortage in South Australia, and an increase in demand following derationing and the maintenance of a rela tively low retail price. Dairy industry authorities also claim that the low return to produc ers was an important fa...
