Casual Reflections. [Newspaper Article] — Tamworth Observer and Northern Advertiser — 2 September 1910
Casual Reflections. The projected alteration in the railway time-table, whereby the train which arrives here at night from Svdiiev, and generally known as tlie 'paper train,'' will be divert ed at Werris Creel; to the north-west, seems to be arousing little united opposition. Thi public evidently have not realised the disad vantages that will follow the alteration. Ill sacrificing the interests ot lamwortli to serve tlie north-west, the Commissioners are adopt ing an attitude which, to sav. (he least, i\ absolutely incompatible' with the importance of this centre, and tho many .convenience: the present system entails. It is not sug gested that the uort!i-we-torn districts arc at present well served bv tile railways, or that there is no ground for improved communica tion. But it can be justi'v claimed by Tam worth that 'its' importance is' such that no other, district in the north and north-west has legitimate precedence over it, and by virtue of the position it holds, there is every...
SHORT-WOOL BREEDS. [Newspaper Article] — Tamworth Observer and Northern Advertiser — 2 September 1910
SHORT-WOOL BREEDS. Jlr. J. Wrenford Matthews, Government sheep expert, writes in the current liuinbor of the 'Agricultural Gazette': — 'Tbe average man is inclined to suppose that the difference between long-wool and ? short-wool sheep consists entirely in t):e fact that while the former has long wool, the wool of the latter is short. I his difference in length of wool, it need hardly be said, is, however, merely the outward sign of great and far-reachiiij; differences in practically overy detail. The sheep is something more than au animal that produces wool; its flesh nlso is ill great demand. A sheep that at ? ? tho same time produced a heavy fleece of valuable wool, yio'dod a large enrenso of prime mutton, and matured at an unusually early age, would be an exceedingly profitable typo. This sheep, however, lms not .vet been discovered, and probably never will. Un fortunately, or perhaps fortunately, excel lence in one direction is r/wavs linked with . ..- comparative limitation ii...
DAIRYING IN SCOTLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Tamworth Observer and Northern Advertiser — 2 September 1910
DAIRYING IN SCOTT, AND. A visitor to the Old Country writes as fol lows: — 'Agriculture as a practical science has for many years made rapid progress in Ayrshire and surrounding countries, the results of Vlneli are ci'early shown i n ^ the agricultural statistics of tho district. The cattle of the ?the district, esneeially dairy cows, are ex ; v '. ceptionally well cared for and have a world wide fame. The Ayrshiro is evidently allied to the North Devon, the Hereford, the --' ' .Sussex,, .the Falkland, or lo tho other de scendants of the original cattle of Great - Britain, and it p:;ssihlv passed slow'v into a -:? ... distinctive variety under the modifying iji lluenccs of Ayrshire soil i\nd e'imate. — 'No cow ill the British isles gives more liul'v according to its weight than the Ayr . sliire. The greater portion of tlio milk in Am ih ire is made into cheese, the best, of _: which is 'Dunlop,' from the parsili near Kil marnock. where the Ayrshire was first sys ~ teniatienlly bred ...
DURABILITY OF HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Tamworth Observer and Northern Advertiser — 2 September 1910
DURABILITY OF HORSES. Mr. William Miles, writing on shoeing in ]8o7, remarks that most old horses are much older than tliey are believed to be. 'After the mark is gone they remain about nine or ten veal's old so lone:, tlieir actual a;ro be comes buried in oblivion.' Mr. Miles had at various times met with four horses who were all known to be over -10 years old, ami were still at work. One was shot when -lo, -?„„t 1„. ,vn« incinnlile -if further — work, but because his master saw his man ill ? u«e him. In 1830 Mr. Miles bad six horses in his own stable whose combined nges amo unted to l-lo vears. and five of tlieiji were still goinij in ifioT. 'with o'ean legs, a'nd hoofs ? looking like colts' hoofs. The sixth had been destroyed at the aire of 20 years; it had^ been bought when seven years old with incipient navicular disease, lint careful shoeing and stalilo management kept it at bay for 10 years.
LIVE STOCK IN BRAZIL. [Newspaper Article] — Tamworth Observer and Northern Advertiser — 2 September 1910
1,1V E STOCK TX HIfA/11,. Tho imnortniiee of the live-stock industry in Rrnstil is considerable, yet owing to great distances and Hie luck of modern transporta tion facilities it is difficult to move animals in that country. At a recent show held 'there sonic first-rate Berkshire nnd Po'and Cliina r.ins were exhibit ed, but these were so recont.lv imnorted or bred that it is impos sible a.s vet to ascert iin whether or not such breeds will be suitable for lirnzil. A num ber of horses from liio Grande do Sul wero shown, ccmprisiii^ draught, harness, and back breeds. TIicsh were mostly of French descent, and were of excellent tharacter. The best all-round animal iu Brazil is i-rohabl,'; the Brazilian mule. He is not so iavi'.e ns tho American mule, nnd resembles the old Mexican burro : but he is better tempered than the American mule, and is also able to endure the climate. Whilst some slieep breodim; is liein;; done in the southern por tions of Brazil, the number of sheep produc ed i...
THE FARMERS SONS. [Newspaper Article] — Tamworth Observer and Northern Advertiser — 2 September 1910
THE FARMERS' SONS. 'Die average fanner is not as susceptible as lie should be to tho advantages to be gained by permitting his sons to' attend ono or other of the agricultural colleges or schools (says the 'Sydney Morning Herald'). When tho Stato Government first decided to estab lish a series of experimental farms, a great „r +i.„ ? ,j,v„? ? i i. , .- i-T . the movement. Even quito recently some thing of the same spirit wasjn evidence in connection with tho proposal to'found a dairy school on the South Coast. Tho original ob jection to institutions of this sort was that the produce raised would, come into competi tion ill the; open markets with the crops pro duced bv tbe farmers. It was also urged that ?the tests carried out would ho useless for practical purposes, as thev would not bo con ducted on economic lines. It is not neces sary to show the absurdity of these conten tions now iu the light of tlie results achiev ed.' Tho farms, for one thing, wero mostly established to carry ...
