THE DAIRY. THE CARE OF CREAM. CONDITIONS FOR RIPENING. THREE DISTINCT METHODS. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 11 December 1908
THE DAIRY. THE CARE OF CHEAM. CONDITIONS FOR RIPENING. THREE DISTINCT METHODS. In the production of sourness or a ripe condition of cream there are at least three well-Vnown methods, which arc subject to .variation. The 'com monest way is to expose tho cream to the air at its natural temperature; se condly, warm the cream to a tempera ture of 90 degrees Fahr. each time a fresh quantity of cream is added to tho stock; and, lastly, use starters. Theoretically, It Is supposed that the nitrogenous matter contained In cream such as casein, and probxbly also albu men and fibriir-holds up the globules of tat. "When sourness Is produced, lactic acid Is found free in the cream, and this lactic acid, together with the products of certain other fermentations which are working in the cream, cause decom position of the nitrogenous matter. The globules are thus liberated, and are as a consequence more likely when churned to adhere together and form butter. As the ripening process naturally de pen...

Tho young bees aro constantly hatching, and it is natural for thom to divide, the old queen and most o£ the boes old enough to fly starting out to seek a new home, leaving . the young bees, brood, and capped queen cells. Queen cells have the appearance of a large peanut. They , are built on tho bottom edges o£ some of tho central combs. To delay swarm ing,-.as the colonies get strong, seo that there is an inch space across the lull width of the hive and. beneath the frames. This will give extra space for tho working force to cluster in at night, and also provide abundant ventilation. Givo them a second story of. combs : as soon as they begin to be crowded out of the entrance. The bees will enter and fill this story with brood and mixed honey, gathered-before the white honey flow.

Murray Waters. Mr H. M'Kenzie the retiring .membeif for Rodney addressed a large number of electors at Echuca on Saturday last. In referring to the agreement of the waters of the Murray lie said :-It was a question .of paramount importance, not only to the northern area, but 10 the whole state.' Many members who knew nothing about the matter were simply blocking the bill. Mr Watt went so far as to say that he "would use every means in his power in opposition to it. Unfortunately he had the power of oratory and-had ?carried with him many who had 110 ? propsr knowledge of the issues at stake.; All that was wanted was a reasonable agreement. (Hear, hear.) The "Age" had published some of the most ridiculous and puerile articles imaginable on the Murray trade, bringing forward the argu ment ' that river hands would be better employed building railways .for traffic than handling river goods. .
