CO-OPERATION FOR FRUIT GROWERS. THE FORMATION OF AN ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — Robertson Mail — 4 July 1924
CO-OPERATION FOR FRUIT GROWERS. THE FORMATION OF AN ASSOCIATION. A spirit of rivalry naturally as-, serts itself between the members of a .fruit-growers' ? cooperative society (the formation of which was dis cussed in these notes recently), and if this rivalry is based upon common sense it proves of very great benefit. In the same way, competition tends to -become keen between individual societies, and vested interests are not slow in playing one society -against the other. To .avoid this it will be necessary to 'link the local societies into a district association. In bringing this about, each so ciety should be allowed to preserve its local character, and the fruit of the society should be sold under the Drana registered uuu cmhuiwiwu : that society. The enthusiasm^ andj ambition of the contributors in eachj local society should be fostered, and assisted to develop along up-to-date lines. Initiative and originality should be encouraged to the utmost, and the reputation for its fru...

A DAIRYING ESSENTIAL. MUST HAVE HOT WATER. Hot water, boiling, if possible, is an essential to successful dairying.

Jnirn In uiniltf Of wnerc iieui ' ? * — wet weather it is Very lukewarm water that is obtained, apart irom the scanty supply and the waste of fuel and time in securing it. Indeed the -scarcity of fuel is ever become ing a greater problem on some dairy farms, and fuel is used very reluct antly for heating water for washing up purposes.
