DRY WOOD PULP AS FODDER. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 18 January 1919
DRY WOOD PULP AS FODDER. Wien during thc nar reference was made to some of the queer composi tions which were mixed as bread in Germany, doubt was often cast on the stories. According to an American paper just to band, in several Euro pean countries, notably Sweden and Germany, the scarcity of cattle fodder has,lcd to experiments with various substitutes for the usual food given to cattle. It lias been found that dried wood pulp provides a good cattle fod der with molasses and albuminous sub tances.

MANURE AND ROTATE. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 18 January 1919
I MANURE AND BOTATE. j Farm yard manure.is neglected dil this Coast, and rotation is also a. sub ject which ci cry farmer should exam ine his nuscienee ou casefully. A leading Victorian cn pping district is Kilmore, between. Melbourne and Castlemaine. Considc able attention is paid there to tho ccn.crvation of farm y.ird manure, and thia is applied main ly oa the volcanic sail, although. pay able craps'aro obtained without man ure. Tho volcanic soils do not respond satisfactorily to artificial fertiliser, consequently where the supply of farm yard manure is insufficient, no manure al »ll is used rather thin resort to tho artificial. Tho Kilmore district is especially notable for its oats grow ing, and also for potatoes .These crops yeild well on the second-class land with a moderate application of phos phate manure, and the more general system of rotation is potatoes as the breaking up crop after pastures, oats after potatoes, oats either cut for grain or hay as feeding crop, and af...

WHAT PLOUGHS TO USE. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 18 January 1919
WHAT PLOUGHS TO USE. A member of the Miltalie branch of tho South Australian Agricultural Bureau, Mr. Degner, speaking at a recent meeting, said it was a hard matter to definitely state. Tillich of tho two classes of ploughs, i.e., share and disc, gave tho best results becauso so much depended on thc class of land one had to work. Although tho shares wero expensive at the present time, he thought the share plough should he used on old land. A considerable sav ing could be made, if ono purchased the steel and made tho shares on the farm. The discs for tho other type of plough were not so expensive, but it was necessary to use a fair amount of oil and grease, otherwise the bearing would very soon wear out. The share nlough was also moro helpful in pull ing the stumps out of the land. That was an important point, becauso it did not shake tho machines, and imple ments would not be shaken about so much. The horses would also he able to urork more steadily, and their shoulders would stand...

THE MAN ON THE LAND (Conducted by "J.D.") A DRY JANUARY. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 18 January 1919
THE MAN ON THE LAND (Coiuluctcd by "J.D.") A DRY JANUARY. Thc weather continues dry, hut a dry January is seasonable, ami for those making hay very much appreciated. In the view of one practical fanner, who ?was spoken to on the .subject, dry »euther is, of tonr.se, essential for hay making, while growers with early pota toes are looking for no rain. Those with late potatoes will, if they hare J hay on hand, he better pleased to see the conditions continue dry for market- I ing what will prove this year to be a j valuable crop. In view of the agrieul- I turist referred to, a downpour from now would not benefit- the dairymen to the extent that some imagine. Still, in the general concensus of opinion a I good fall would he appreciated. Tho Coast almost missed the good rain which fell 12 days back. In some dis tricts, notably tho Midlands, where it was badly wanted, over an inch was recorded.
PROSPECTIVE HARVEST. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 18 January 1919
PROSPECTIVE HARVEST. Tile figures given by tile Government Statist in respect to thc Tasmanian harvest form pleasant reading, but there will be a general disposition to regard the estimates as considerably over the mark, especially in respect to oats and potatoes. Except on tho X.W. Coast, the Tasmanian crops are not startling, according to aduces. In the Northern districts they are decidedly i patchy1. There are increases shown for barley, for instance, but owing to the conditions of December and January the barley in the Xortli, which is 60W11 late in the ¡.easoii, is none too promising.
